Case Study:
Electric Bikes and Scooters


In the spring of 2021, FURO SYSTEMS approached CBF for help with order processing for their e-bikes and e-scooters and to become their 3PL provider to help them focus on growing their business and sales both domestically and internationally.

Each container arriving from the manufacturer would be checked against their respective Purchase Order and ASN paperwork, logged on our warehouse management system and located in our warehouse.

All orders would then be processed, scanning each item via barcode verification, logging their respective Serial Numbers for each model of electric bike or electric scooter to their corresponding order. 

Once labelled, the large parcels would then be handed securely over to either our bespoke Two-Man Lift service, delivering across the UK and Northern Ireland, or across Europe and the rest of the world via an ‘oversized’ courier service.

Due to the size and weight of the products, we implemented a number of processes to ensure the safety of our Warehouse team when handling the electric bicycles.

As a star client, we worked hard with FURO SYSTEMS to ensure all our processes were slick, clearly verified and logged on all systems so we knew the exact serial number for each item on every order.

Containers and pallets, serial number inbound logging, products labelled and located in oversized pallet bays.


Our volumetric storage model saved Furo from dedicated overheads for space they didn't need to be allocated to them. Calculated Daily our software manages everything using the dimensions of the products in our warehouses.

Order Processing

Directly integrating into a Shopify platform, we were taking pre-orders into our system.  Ready for processing once the stock had landed with us.

We were then picking, barcode verifying and serial number allocating to the order for warranty purposes. 

All D2C orders are polled for orders every 15 minutes to enable same-day dispatch SLA. 

All wholesale orders are planned and scheduled for customers' shipment planning and timeline agreements.


D2C: Same Day Dispatch processing - Either Dedicated vehicle routing or Parcelforce 48 Large Service used for all D2C shipments. 

Wholesale orders are shipped on oversized pallets through pallet networks or dedicated vehicles to retail outlets and online retailer distribution hubs. 

Returns Processing

All returned bikes and scooters were scanned back in for serial number management.  Out shipping carton assessed for planning back into picking stock, quarantine processing or destruction. 

All returns are processed within the agreed 72 working hour period.

Testimonial: alya skin. - Cosmetics & Beauty

"We assigned CBF Fulfilment as our third party logistics company for UK orders 2 years ago.

They have been nothing short of amazing to work with, they are extremely quick to despatch orders and have a team that are always so willing to help when needed.

As an ecommerce business owner that has worked with multiple 3PL companies and can safely say that CBF Fulfilment has been the best we have ever worked with in all the years."

Testimonial: Climbingvan - Books and Publication

"We run Climbingvan, a resource for helping people with self-build van conversions. Last year we wrote our book, The Van Conversion Bible, which explains exactly how to convert a campervan.
As we live full-time in our own van and work remotely from the road, it's not possible for us to manage our own fulfilment. CBF help us to get our book into the hands of our customers all across the country, as well as fulfilling our wholesale orders to larger suppliers. We appreciate their flexibility and the bespoke service they are able to offer us. The world of ecommerce was new to us, and the team at CBF have been really helpful in making everything possible for us, and are always friendly and quick to respond."

Testimonial: Lola + Blake - Clothing & Accessories

"I’ve been really pleased with the service I have received from CBF. Each business is unique, and mine certainly has a lot of personalisation options and additions that customers request. CBF worked to implement these and find solutions to ensure that my brand remained as personal as when I individually wrapped and sent each order myself from my dining room table! Recent reviews from customers have remained positive with special mentions to the quality of the luxury gift wrap and the nice touch of personal notes."

Testimonial: Dodo Pad - Books & Publication

"Moving to CBF has enabled us to improve our service to our own eCommerce customers – next day delivery and orders always despatched on time with full tracking – as well as navigate increasingly complex international shipping.
We are a small business with a peak at Christmas. CBF has given us the flexibility we needed, which was not possible when we were managing fulfilment in house."

"CBF have handled my orders for almost five years now, which single-handedly allowed me to grow from a bedroom business to a scale I could never have handled myself.
