Consignment Sales in Europe

Benefits of Doing Consignment Sales in Europe

When foreign suppliers start selling in the European countries, they only import the products according to the customer requirements leading to a waste of time and money.

Consignment sales service lets the suppliers sell their goods in Europe without having a legal European entity and warehouse. The products are held in Europe on a consignment basis and are directly shipped to the customers from their distribution centers.

The supplier owns the goods till the time they are sold to the consumers and becomes the consignor. CAPLINQ services let you hold the products as a consignee, and European clients become the buyers. This service saves both time and overhead costs while providing faster deliveries to the clients.
