Online retail giant eBay is expanding its international footprint with the opening of a new European fulfilment centre in Germany.
The new eBay Enterprise 280,000 sq ft facility near Leipzig is expected to go live in the second quarter of 2015, and will provide more than 70 carriers and 350 service options to enable cross-border shipping throughout Europe.
“Fulfilment remains the lynchpin of a successful omnichannel operation and this new German facility allows us to support our clients’ local and pan-European fulfilment needs,” said Michael Kliger, Vice President International, eBay Enterprise.
“We are committed to providing European brands and retailers with localised fulfilment and shipping solutions that offer the scale, reliability, and cost efficiencies they demand for their digital operations on a global level.”
eBay Enterprise continues to expand globally with its recently announced new office in Barcelona. It’s also the leader in local commerce enabling store-based fulfilment in more than 5,500 stores for 42 brands, 29 retailers and across 15 countries in three continents with expectations to reach 6,000 stores by the end of 2014.
eBay Enterprise currently provides commerce technologies, warehouse and store-based fulfilment, customer care and marketing solutions for leading European brands and retailers, including Achica, Finlux, Peak Performance, and Tiger of Sweden.
