E-commerce specialist targets global growth after opening six warehouses

A Humber-based e-commerce fulfilment firm, Systemise Fulfilment, has outlined its plans for global expansion.

The business has accumulated more than 50,000 sq ft of warehouse space, growing from an initial 2,000 sq ft warehouse in Scunthorpe in three years.

It is now looking to increase its portfolio of warehouses in existing markets and enter more major marketplaces across the globe – following its launch of six licensed warehouses in the UK, USA and EU over the past three years and the creation of at least 45 jobs.

The company is spearheaded by co-founders and directors Kevin Blackburn and his partner, Kylie Thomas.

They intend to launch in the German, French, Italian, Spanish and Middle Eastern markets within the next three years.

Since it was launched, the business has shipped over four million items with an estimated sales value of over £50m for its e-commerce partners.

Blackburn said: “I’m so proud of our whole team and like-minded licenced partners across the UK, EU and US for their dedication to our vision, core values, systems and processes.

“Our incredible team and passionate licenced partners are helping us to reach our ambitious goals far faster than we could have ever imagined when we first began this journey.

“We are committed to continuing our expansion efforts across the globe, as so far our overseas licenced warehouses have been a huge success.

“Our licensed partners have had the opportunity to grow and develop their own warehouse teams, and our e-commerce partners – which range from early stage Amazon sellers right through to advanced e-commerce businesses – have also been a huge part of this progression.”

Alongside its plans to enter more major EU markets and the Middle East, Systemise Fulfilment is working towards opening more warehouses in North America and in Australia in the next six years.
