Amazon Announcement – Brexit ending EFN and Pan-European FBA

Amazon Prime
Amazon have announced that their UK FBA operations will split from the European Fulfilment Network (EFN) and Pan-European FBA inventory transfers between the UK and EU will end, as of 1st January 2021.

So, what does this mean for your business?

In plain English, if your business uses Amazon’s UK fulfilment centres for sending to customers in Europe you will need to split your inventory between Amazon’s UK and European fulfilment centres, to serve both markets. Otherwise risk missing out on 85% of your current customer base in Europe.

This is obviously not ideal and a headache for businesses who rely on trade across UK and European borders. However, at Virtual Logistics we have it covered. Regardless of Brexit and European borders, we will partner with you to manage the storage, packing and shipping of products worldwide, helping you negotiate customs and border control. You will continue to benefit from our competitive shipping rates and the benefits of our Amazon Seller- Fulfilled Prime distribution centre, therefore if this change will affect your business please give the Virtual Logistics team a call.
