Why the European market can help your business grow
The European e-commerce market is booming. In 2021 it reached a value of $621 billion and that is only projected to increase in the coming years.

Entering the European market with a well-connected 3PL based on the continent can help you reach this lucrative market and seamlessly expand your operations across Europe.

Exploring the European market

Which countries are the biggest players?
The European e-commerce market is made up of 44 countries, with 27 of those making up a single trading zone, the European Union. The largest market within the EU is Germany, with 62.4 million e-commerce users. This is closely followed by the UK, though since Brexit, it can take a few extra steps to establish your business there. More on this below.

This diverse market is comfortable shopping online and wants to buy from EU retailers to avoid additional costs. They also expect fast shipping – around three days.
Get your orders delivered quickly, for a low price
The European market is used to fast shipping times. Fulfilling with Hive means you can meet these demands for a low price.

We will always choose the best carrier for each parcel depending on your preferences, the size, and destination, and negotiate great prices.

Plus, Hive fulfills all orders made before 12pm on the same day, making sure your products get to your community fast.
Reaching the UK
Since Brexit, shipping to the UK has become a little more complex. However, partnering with a European 3PL still offers cheaper, faster, and less complicated shipping when compared to shipping from anywhere outside of Europe.

Shipping to the UK from Germany or France currently takes 2-4 days.
