West Malling, United Kingdom, March 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Samantha Anderson, CEO of OFEX and author of e-Book “How To Make Your Ecommerce Business Work For You” is excited to bring OFEX to Canada this year as part of a global expansion from their UK base to bring distribution and full service order fulfillment to e-commerce businesses internationally.
“The UK is Europe’s leading e-retail economy, with sales reaching €81bn in 2011, and with that in mind OFEX's goal is to become the order fulfillment market leader to SME e-commerce businesses for international suppliers looking to bring their offering to the UK and take a share of this market. There's close affinity between the two cultures and Sterling is attractive to Canadian business right now, so it's the obvious place for us to start our transatlantic expansion.”
Sam founded OFEX on the belief that any e-commerce business could develop a global presence and exploit the potential in new markets and territories overseas, but without spending a fortune on marketing, infrastructure and logistics.
OFEX is already well established in the UK and has a close working relationship with e-commerce businesses supplying high end retailers like Selfridges and Harrods, fulfilling orders for a-list celebrities and Hollywood glitterati.
The company are offering Canadian partners a service on the ground in the UK tailored specifically to the needs of e-commerce businesses including: product fulfillment, mail fulfillment, 3D mailings, outsourced mailroom, mailbox rental services, mail forwarding, storage, stock management, packing services and fragile goods and postal and courier services.
Thanks to this service Canadian SMEs can test the UK market without major commitment or investment before establishing a bigger presence. It provides a bridgehead to a thriving ecommerce market that continues to grow year on year, offering new revenue streams for companies looking to expand overseas.
