Sendcloud e-commerce shipping platform launches in the UK


Sendcloud, an all-in-one shipping platform for e-commerce businesses, has launched into the UK market.

Sendcloud’s all-in-one shipping platform will now enable British online retailers to scale their business across Europe. 

Online sales in the UK have skyrocketed lately, showing year-on-year growth of 51.6%, with further growth set to come in from demand outside the UK in the coming years. 

According to Sendcloud’s recently commissioned e-commerce report, 53% of European shoppers regularly order from international online stores, yet many consumers are still being left frustrated at the time and expense of international delivery services. 

Sendcloud’s all-in-one shipping platform reduces the complexity of international shipping by giving online retailers access to local carriers across Europe, turning cross-border shipping into a stress-free, sales accelerator. 

The platform automates the challenges retailers face in the shipping and delivery process, reducing costs and improving delivery times while providing retailers with a full-service system that works from checkout to returns:

  • Checkout - Offer customers the best carriers and delivery options at checkout.
  • Shipping - Create a customised, scalable and flawless shipping workflow.
  • Tracking - Brand the tracking experience and excite customers while they wait.
  • Returns - Make returns hassle free and get a complete overview of incoming returns.

The launch of the platform in the UK will provide online retailers with the ability to integrate their e-commerce store with UK-based shipping carriers such as Royal Mail, DPD, UPS and Hermes, as well as both major and local European carriers.

Rob van den Heuvel, CEO and Co-founder at Sendcloud comments, “While bricks and mortar stores continue to recover from the pandemic, e-commerce is booming and as a result, the online customer experience is becoming more demanding. 

“Handing over a parcel is no longer a simple business transaction but part of the overall customer experience, so creating a seamless experience is a win-win situation for both online retailers and consumers. Launching Sendcloud into the UK market provides a great opportunity for us to empower British e-commerce businesses and retailers with a simple, scalable shipping solution.”
