New BDM Will Help Fulfil Growth Plans For Fulfilmentcrowd

Chorley-headquartered fulfilmentcrowd has appointed its first business development manager for France as it targets European expansion.

The business, which specialises in easily accessible and cost-effective logistics services for fast-growing eCommerce retailers, has appointed Kevin Plantier to drive growth of the company’s fulfilment centre in Lieusaint, France.

Located in Paris, Kevin joins from distribution software company DSD Europe in the Netherlands. He’ll draw on 11 years’ experience working across multiple sectors to grow fulfilmentcrowd’s offer amongst France-based eCommerce retailers.

Kevin Plantier commented: “What really excites me about joining fulfilmentcrowd and the opportunity to grow the business in France, is the company’s customer-centric approach. Everything from transparent pricing and instantly available quotes, through to client on-boarding and the improvements made to the mobile customer app, have been designed to make life easier for eCommerce retailers.

“Online shopping in France is about five years behind the levels of maturity we’re seeing in the UK and many of the country’s eCommerce retailers are still perfecting sales and distribution strategies. There’s nothing else in the market like fulfilmentcrowd’s ‘nothing to hide’ pricing and seamless digital-first stock management solution, and it’ll really appeal to retailers who are looking for ways to enhance efficiencies and rapidly scale their businesses.”

fulfilmentcrowd opened its Lieusaint fulfilment centre in December 2021 to initially support growing exports and international shipping from its UK customers, following investment from BGF. The business has driven growth by offering SME eCommerce retailers a supply chain management service that brings together cloud software and an innovative mobile app platform developed by in-house engineers. Its customers are also supported by a robust customer service team for those that prefer manual onboarding and support.
