Kubbo (credit image/Pixabay/mwewering)Spanish startup Kubbo is planning its international move to expand its model of digitising logistics for brands and ecommerce companies. The operator has launched its presence in Italy, one of the fastest growing and most promising markets for online sales. With more than 60 million inhabitants, 72% of consumers say they shop online. Before the pandemic, the online sector in Italy moved more than 16 billion euros per year. Currently, it is one of the European regions with the highest growth rate, with an average of 20% per year. This is compared to 8-10% for the EU as a whole.

Kubbo plans to transfer to Italy its integrated management model of the entire sales process. This includes a fulfilment service that allows it to offer storage, picking, packing and same-day and next-day shipments. According to Eric Daniel, Kubbo CEO, “In Spain, we are the only logistics partner that prepares the order. Furthermore, ships it and delivers it to the buyer’s home on the same day it is ordered.

A Kubbo study suggests that companies implementing Same-Day shipments can sell up to 63% more units per order. A fact that confirms that these shipments become a lever for growth and sales acceleration for eCommerce brands.

Enterprise Times: What this means for business.

The sharp rise in eCommerce sales has heaped additional pressures on warehouses and Distribution Centres across the globe. These challenges include labour shortage, transition to “pick by each” fulfilment, and omnichannel distribution – to name a few. Furthermore, the increasing trend toward direct to consumers (D2C) is also driving brands to the doors of fulfilment companies. As a result, fulfilment operators have had to adapt to the changing consumer expectation for faster and impeccable order delivery. Analysts have suggested southern Europe as a region for accelerated eCommerce growth. Hence the Spanish eCommerce logistics startup plans to compete with the major operators in Italy. To support its ambitions to become the supplier of the main brands that operate online in the country.
