Parcelhub introduces dedicated sales team to help Scottish retailers, brands and wholesalers enhance their delivery management and customer services.
Following 40% growth throughout Financial Year 2016/17, Parcelhub’s new presence in Scotland expands the reach of its current network which is headquartered in Nottingham, and has further distribution centres in South Yorkshire, the West Midlands and partners throughout East Anglia, the North West, South West and South East of England.
While the UK’s eCommerce ‘hotspots’ have widely been regarded as being in England (namely London and the Midlands), the Scottish Government estimates that in 2017 there are around 6,500 wholesale businesses and 14,000 retailers in the private sector. The retail sector in Scotland is “diverse” and “Most employment remains in small firms, but there has been considerable consolidation in recent years.”
Sean George, Sales Executive (pictured) who has been driving the initial development of Parcelhub in Scotland made the following observations:
“With a huge variety of single and multichannel retailers selling on major marketplaces such as eBay, Amazon and Etsy, clearly Scotland offers huge scope for the continued growth in the eCommerce sector.”
