Hand Finishing, Packing & Kit Building
What do we do?
Hand packing and finishing is such an individual, personal process. We find that each Kit Build we create has exacting, individual requirements; so we listen to our customers to achieve exactly what is required.
Whether that's simply applying a barcode label to a product ready for retail distribution or planning and undertaking multi SKU kit builds.
There a very few limitations to what we can do for you within our fulfilment offering.
On a daily basis our experienced warehouse team pick and pack products from our customers stock inventory to ship directly into their customers, create multi product Kit Builds for more unique offerings such as gift sets and hampers and Hand Work large orders for retail and wholesale requirements.
All processes are watched carefully and managed throughout every stage by multiple departments within CBF. The experienced and qualified staff members that work within our Account Managing, Client Support and Warehouse departments to ensure no matter what your requirements are we will provide appropriate help and guidance through every stage until completion.

Hand Finishing / Packing Distribution
We can take receipt of goods from multiple suppliers/manufacturers for processing but once we have completed hand packing or finishing them where do you want them to go? It may sound an obvious question, but we know how to pack for various channels including retail, online shopping portals, multiple sites, distributors and agents.
Each one requires different paperwork and have variable requirements for their deliveries. We can ship and deliver worldwide via courier, pallet networks or bespoke deliveries if required.
Don't forget we can store your products so you can manage your finished items across all channels. Using our software you can place orders for the shipping of your goods to your customers/clients anytime, night or day. Due to numerous processes and checks that we have in place our mispicks figures are some of the lowest in the industry.
Who do we work with?
Loving a good cosmetics company especially one that has a good story. Take Recover Cosmetics born from years of experience in teaching makeup artists in the film and TV industries. They have produced a range of cosmetics to rival the best on the market.
Working together to collect goods from manufacturers, storing, repacking and processing goods for B2B and B2C clients. We have worked with Recover to help promote free sample packs through social media pushes and daily order processing. Here's a little from them about our working partnership.
We at Flourish Make Up Ltd have been extremely impressed by the professionalism and results that CBF Fulfilment has shown and provided for us over the last 9 months. In particular, your responsiveness, versatility, guidance and ability to work with our other service providers, UK based and overseas, have allowed us to launch our ReCover Cosmetics brand with the absolute confidence that every aspect of our fulfilment needs are in very good hands.
Toys are fun to manage no matter what environment they are in. Even in our warehouse, our picking and packing staff love working with clients like Chunki Chilli. Their knitted toys are all stored in cellophane bags and busting with character, each item has been lovingly made and is looking for a new home. Who couldn't love a pirate rabbit, a knitted giraffe with a scarf on to keep his neck warm, a cow with a tutu, a badger with a knitted suit on or a lovingly made Christmas Stocking?
We give the toys the respect they deserve. Helping Chunki Chilli ship goods into our warehouse, process online orders from numerous retailers as well as processing wholesale orders. With access to our online stock tools and free integrations to all major online retailers, this is a match made in heaven. We love fulfilling your toys Chunki Chilli.
Here's what they think of us:
We moved to CBF after experiencing a nightmare Christmas with another fulfilment service that inexplicably left a large number of orders on hold until it was far too late for us to restock in time for Christmas. CBF has been very consistent, thorough and methodical, and have lifted a huge burden by using software to automate the processing of orders received via Notonthehighstreet. They have been very proactive about problem-solving.
Director - Chunki Chilli
Loving online retailers at CBF. We look after cosmetic retailer Blossom and Root, helping to ship in goods from 3rd parties internationally to store, pick, pack and distribute across the UK. Helping with a same day dispatch guaranteed service. Blossom and Root can confidently offer a next day delivery service to all orders and with our Organic credentials, we can store and fulfil some of their more regulated products. Here is a small testimonial from them and what they think about our services. We are grateful to have such kind words.

Cool Boys/Girls Shoes
We love working with shoe companies. Our fulfilment warehouse is home to some of the fast growing and best established around.
Cool Boy and Cool Girl Shoes is no exception. Suppliers of high-quality school shoes for young children. Born out of a lack of choice for the founder's children, this brand now designs their own ranges and also supplies Startright shoes to public schools across the UK.
Here's what founder Angela Brown thinks of CBF Fulfilment:
"I moved my outsourcing to CBF over a year ago now and I have to say it was one of the best decisions I made. From the first conversation I had as a potential client, I felt confident I would be in safe hands. Steve's and his team's knowledge and experience in the field shone through straight away and has been a huge help to me ever since.
I have also experienced great service from the printing side of things when I've needed labels etc printing. I love that it's all under one roof and the standards are kept up throughout. I have no hesitation in recommending CBF.
We love your work Angela! Helping you grow into new locations and keeping your orders looking great and processed is a pleasure.
Everyone can appreciate a lovely pair of shoes but when it comes to Eves and Gray they are sublime in style and quality.
The brainchild of Mr Tim Wearing we have been working with the business storing, pick/packing and shipping goods to wholesale and individuals from all over the world. This growing business came to us after outgrowing their previous distribution solution and finding that the costs of storage, picking and packing with us was cheaper than the storage space they were utilising in London.
We saved and made efficiency improvements with their outer packaging as well as their shipping costs.
These stunning shoes deserve all the care and attention they get from us. We love working with Eves and Gray!
Don't take our word for it. Here's what they think of our service:
Without a doubt, the best decision for Eves and Gray was to contract CBF for our storage and fulfilment requirements. They are a rarity in today's market, as they actually use their initiative and common sense.
We would recommend their services to anyone in a heartbeat.

"CBF Fulfilment has provided us excellent service, a very friendly team and flexible too. We consider them as our partners rather than just a service provider, they always go the extra mile not only providing best fulfilment services but more of a human touch which very much syncs with our way of doing business too.

Ventz produces a unique airflow system for all bike riders to allow air to freely pass around bike leathers and clothing to make all riders more comfortable. We store and process all wholesale and end user orders using our online software tools to help communicate to the Ventz main website, Amazon and a number of other channels giving the business one login to see all reporting and processing. All stock is booked in automatically from manufacturers and as the summer months seem to work best for the product we find ourselves shipping goods all over the globe as the seasons change.
Don't take our word for it. Here's what Ventz have to say:
Since we began working with CBF Fulfilment, some 18 months ago, we at Ventz no longer have the worry or concern of receiving the previously frequent customer enquiries/complaints asking where their order has got to or that the incorrect product or quantity of products have been supplied. It’s comforting to know that we can always rely on a professional and efficient quality of service from CBF.
CBF are a professional friendly company to work with and they are always happy to help when asked, no problem is too small.
Finally it’s good to know that we are working with a company that has the capacity to accommodate the seasonal variability that our specific products demand.
If you are looking for a company to handle your fulfilment requirements you would have to go a long way to beat them and I have no reservations whatsoever in giving them my wholehearted recommendation.
Looking at When in Rome's business model, selling boxes of wine to retailers, wholesale and consumers you would be right to double take the 'wine box' and dismiss it straight away. But the box is back! and with a vengeance. With a strong online marketing presence and plenty to shout about regarding their environmental credentials, nevermind the value a wine box gives the purchaser. When in Rome are now shipping into Waitrose, Ocado, Harvey Nicols and loads of wholesalers. This Italian wine importer only selects wine from small growers and is definitely going places!
We store, pick, pack and help manage the wholesale channels for When in Rome ensuring that all orders are packed correctly, on-time and within budget. Using our online stock control tools and ordering processes the WIR team have a single point of access for all stock levels and the ability to process orders from all their multiple channels.
We love working with these guys and it feels like the feeling is mutual. We consider ourselves an extension of them and we can never do too much to help them achieve success. Long may it reign. Here's what they think of us:
"When you're a small business, you never forget those suppliers and partners who recognise growth potential and treat you from day one like the important client that you aspire to be. My experience with CBF has been precisely that.
When in Rome - Director
Thank you Rob. Loving your work.
