Going Global: EU and UK Expansion

Wed, Jan 26, 11:00 AM (CST)

About this event

Ecommerce operators can no longer ignore the pull of UK and European expansion.

According to a recent PYMTS report, European countries are expected to account for almost 28.3% ($340 billion) of the anticipated total sales in cross-border ecommerce spending. In the United Kingdom, ecommerce revenue is projected to reach $143 million by the end of 2022.

But the challenges of international expansion can prevent ecommerce operators from making the move. Fulfillment hurdles, country-specific duties, import tariffs, and changing geopolitical climates inevitably create uncertainty.

Join us tomorrow, January 26th at 11am CT/ 5pm GMT for the first episode of the ShipBob Cross-Border Series with special guests Lucinda O’Reilly, founder of the International Trade Consultancy, Alex Wyatt of Simply VAT, and ShipBob's very own Jordan Russell.
