Bristol-based Huboo expands into Europe

Huboo

Huboo, the disruptive (in a nice way!), Bristol-based logistics company, which launched in 2015 to offer a different, more personal, fulfilment service to the likes of Amazon, is expanding into Europe.

The company has announced that it will open a 35,000 sq ft warehouse in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

The plan was to open on the continent last year, but Covid put the brakes on European growth.

The Dutch warehouse will be able to offer capacity for more than 300 e-commerce clients, with the potential to expand quickly if needed.

Huboo will be the first company to pioneer its microhub technology in the Netherlands.

CEO, Martin Bysh said: “Expanding into Europe has always been a part of our plan for this year, regardless of Brexit. However, Brexit has naturally meant that many of our UK customers are now urgently seeking a trusted EU fulfilment partner to help get their products closer to their international markets, so we’re excited to be able to take on that role.
“We chose the Netherlands as our first European base because it is already a major hub into Europe and will allow our couriers to get to most of the mainland in just one or two days. Furthermore, there currently isn’t any other service in the Netherlands that offers the same unique microhub model that we do, so we are at a real advantage and believe the opportunities for us to grow are huge.”
