Live inventory management
25+ Fulfilment Centres in Europe
Our logistics network consists of 25+ logistics centres. With fulfilment centres in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain, and Austria, we have a strong network in the heart of Europe with a strategically attractive location for worldwide parcel shipping. In the next year, the logistics network will be extended and the capacities for warehousing and fulfilment expanded.
With byrd you have the possibility to store your goods in a fulfilment centre near your customers in order to minimise delivery times and shipping costs and thus optimise your service performance.
Maximum transparency: Real-time inventory management
In your byrd Dashboard you can check the stock levels of your products around the clock and in real time. We differentiate the physical stock from the available units. With the latter, the orders already received are taken into account and thus it can be prevented that too many products are sold via your online shop.
LOT – Tracking
Ermöglicht wird die Bio-Zertifizierung unter anderem auch durch das Tracking vom Mindesthaltbarkeitsdatum und das sogenannte LOT-Tracking mit welchem Chargen nachverfolgt werden können. Zudem arbeiten wir im Lager nach dem first-in first-out Prinzip. Somit kannst Du bald auslaufende Produkte gezielt vermarkten, um alte Lagerbestände loszuwerden.
Professional storage on pallets and shelves
Our logistics centers are equipped with modern shelving systems and pallet spaces and offer thousands of square metres storage space. When goods are received in the fulfilment centre, we take over the counting of the products on request.
All logistics locations have direct truck connections, which enable efficient delivery and storage of the goods. This means that products can be dispatched quickly.
Storage and shipping of organic products
byrd has an organic certification for warehouses in Europe which are regularly inspected. This means that all necessary measures are taken in the warehouse to avoid contamination or mixing with other products – also known as “BIO-HACCP”. This applies to all steps of the logistics chain – from receiving the goods to dispatching them.
eCommerce fulfilment service: Pick & Pack
Efficient pick & pack
Tailor-made packaging solutions
Use your own packaging material
Efficient pick & pack strategy
The in-house developed smart warehouse management software facilitates the processing of high-order volumes while the error rate remains very low. Thanks to the scalable and standardised processes, both small and large online retailers can benefit from professional and fast order picking.
In the logistics centres, various picking methods are used. Depending on the requirements, we use single-order or multi-order picking. This means that the processing of large batch orders can also be completed within a short period of time.
During packaging, we pay attention to high standards for safe transport of the goods. In addition to simple shipping cartons, we also use double-walled packages, which are particularly suitable for heavy products.
Your customers’ expectations are high – our job is to meet and satisfy them. byrd offers same day shipping, as shipments on a national level are delivered on the same day.
We help you to build a strong brand
Packaging is an important success factor in e-commerce (unboxing experience). That’s why we offer tailor-made packaging solutions to create a perfect customer experience for your recipients. On request, you can use tissue paper, ribbons and marketing inserts for your parcels in order to promote your brand or improve your customer loyalty. Thanks to our modern equipment in the logistics centres, the warehouse staff can see which branding measures are required for each order.
Do you wish to use your own branded boxes?
No problem, you can supply us with your own packaging material so that we can use it for your orders.
Maximum transparency: Follow the order fulfilment process live
In your dashboard, you can track the status of your orders live from picking goods from the shelf to creating a shipping label.
Ecological packaging for online retailers
Sustainability is a top priority for us. For this reason, we use as little plastic as possible and only as much packaging material as necessary to ensure safe delivery to the recipient.
eCommerce fulfilment service: Shipping
Flexible shipping services
Easy worldwide shipping
byrd ensures smooth shipping around the world. You don’t have to worry about the customs forms – these are generated automatically via our system and the obligatory documents (e.g. pro forma invoice) are added to the shipment. Once the required data has been stored in our system, you can manage the worldwide shipment of your orders effortless, as we take care of all formalities. In total, byrd has already shipped to more than 120 countries.
Offer different delivery options to your customers
Through cooperation with various shipping service providers, we can offer a variety of delivery options: From economy shipping to standard shipping to worldwide express shipping.
Depending on whether the shipment is time-critical or not, you can choose a shipping option that meets the needs of your customers and allows maximum flexibility. This is a crucial success factor in e-commerce, as 41% of consumers make their purchase decisions on the Internet based on the delivery options offered.
Standard packages are delivered in Austria and Germany within 1-2 business days and are insured up to €500. The delivery time for express parcels is one working day throughout Europe and can be organised on request for overseas parcels.
Stable Supply Chain Management
The flexibility in the choice of shipping partners means less risk for you when sending parcels. Especially at seasonal peaks, which are of great importance for online merchants, logistics service providers reach their limits. This often leads to technical failures, operational bottlenecks or even strikes, which would delay the dispatch of your orders and result in customer dissatisfaction. With byrd you can easily switch to other shipping service providers and thus ensure the shipping of orders from the online shop.
Sustainable management is also an important issue for us and we are convinced that it should play a major role in both logistics and e-commerce. That’s why we offer online merchants the opportunity to send climate-neutral shipments in Germany via GLS and to act in harmony with their brand.
Automatic shipment tracking
We also use our technology to provide maximum transparency for you and your customers when it comes to shipments. When you send your items, all data is automatically returned to the online shop, enabling automatic shipment tracking. Because of that, you and your customer can easily check where the package is at the moment.
eCommerce fulfilment service: Return management
Implementation of quality controls and restocking
Transparente Übersicht über alle Retouren
Quality control and re-storage
Depending on your product, we also carry out quality controls (excluding e.g. electronic devices). Afterwards the products are stored again in the logistics center and the stock updated accordingly. This way you can quickly refund your customer’s money and ensure customer satisfaction.
Keep the overview
In your byrd dashboard you can view all your returns and find out which customers sent something back, the condition of the goods and check if the return shipment was caused by the customer or the shipping company.
Additional services for our customers

However, it is important to us that your company is in the foreground for your customers and that there is a central contact person for them. For this reason, we do not communicate with your customers, but only with you and our shipping partners in order to come up with solutions.
