European Fulfilment

I’m Mike, MD at ILG, and like most business owners, I’ve been keeping a keen eye on developments between the UK and European Union since the Brexit referendum in 2016. This summer, we increased our capacity to provide European fulfilment in a post-Brexit environment by becoming part of Yusen Logistics, a global company with 4,000 employees and 104 storage locations in Europe alone.

European Fulfilment at ILG

This has put ILG in a unique position to manage our customers’ supply chains and offer flexible solutions for goods moving between the UK and the EU. Is it time to reconsider your European supply chain in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit? In order to avoid customs administration and delays at the ports, you might want to split stock between the UK and EU. We have the systems, tools and space to support such a dual logistics solution.

In the event of a “no deal” our account managers will be able to talk to you about any changes in shipping protocols and documentation and will provide forwarding options, importing and customs clearance support for goods coming into the UK and advise on what changes may be required when shipping between EU member states and the UK. This is of course coupled with all our usual fulfilment services remaining unchanged.
