Shoe and Footwear 3PL Fulfilment and Order Processing

If you're a shoe or footwear business, you know that logistics is essential to your success. You need to be able to get your products to your customers quickly and efficiently, and you need to be able to do it at a cost that you can afford.

One option for businesses like yours is to outsource your logistics to a third-party logistics (3PL) provider like us at CBF Fulfilment. We can handle all of your warehousings, picking, packing, shipping, and returns processing, freeing you up to focus on what you do best: making shoes and footwear.

There are many benefits to using a 3PL supplier like CBF for your shoe or footwear business. Here are a few of the most important:

  • Reduced costs: Outsourcing your logistics to a 3PL supplier can help you to reduce your costs by eliminating the need to invest in your own warehouse, staff and order processing equipment.
  • Increased efficiency: Using CBF can help you to increase your efficiency by freeing up your time and resources to focus on other aspects of your business.
  • Improved customer service: Using a 3PL supplier like CBF can help you to improve your customer service by providing a more consistent and reliable experience.
  • Increased scalability: Using CBF as your 3PL supplier can help you to increase your scalability by allowing you to easily increase or decrease your fulfilment capacity as needed.

Choosing the Right 3PL Supplier for your shoe order processing

When choosing a 3PL supplier for your shoe or footwear business, there are a few things you need to consider:

  • The supplier's experience: Make sure that the 3PL supplier has experience working with shoe and footwear businesses. Tick. We have been looking after logistics for clients since 1986.
  • The supplier's capabilities: Make sure that the 3PL supplier has the capabilities to handle your specific needs, such as the size and type of shoes you sell, the volume of orders you receive, and your shipping requirements. We process up to 250,000 items per month and with our online tools, you have full access to all your live inventory, and integrations into all your sales marketplaces and shopping carts. We offer a same-date dispatch on all e-commerce orders and we are scalable. With modular processes we can manage your seasonal changes to help you get those 5-star reviews we are all after.
  • The supplier's location: We are based in Gloucester.  With access to all Royal Mail and major courier networks, your goods can be in your customer hands next day across the UK. We also process orders for brands and ship across the globe.
  • The supplier's pricing: We operate volumetrically for our storage so you're only paying for the storage you are taking up.  We work with you to ensure you're profitable. We understand it's a working partnership.  Without your success we have none.

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."


Charlie & Dale

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."
