How much does it cost to outsource eCommerce fulfilment?


Outsourcing logistics for scale up clients is a LOT more cost effective than having your own warehouse, pickers, packers, warehouse management system, operations managers, customer service agents and more. There’s also the cost of materials handling equipment to consider as you scale; from racking to loading doors to automation.  

eCommerce fulfilment operators, which support multiple clients, have infrastructure in place which equates to economies of scale for its multiple clients. With outsourced eCommerce fulfilment, you simply pay per m2 for storage, a price per pick and pack, and a fee for the delivery. 

84-2-1This can start from £2-3 a shipment. The factors that impact this are:

  • Type of goods
  • Destination
  • Delivery times
  • Carrier selections


It's best to get a bespoke quotation based on your goods, your business aims and your customers, and we will help you match your expectations with the right carriers or couriers. 

At Diamond we make sure that the carrier transporting your product is conducive to that product. We wouldn’t send a high value product through a non-tracked delivery service, for example. That isn’t the right journey for your customer. Also, we’re here to advise you, and we will. 

With us, it all starts with a conversation. Diamond Logistics Bournemouth first partnered with subscription box retailer Books that Matter in 2019 following a conversation between Molly Masters, founder and CEO, and Craig Brixey – the man in charge at Bournemouth. Craig’s bespoke quotation was based on goods, business aims and Molly’s customers. Read the success story here of how Molly’s orders jumped from 400 to 3,700 after just one year of outsourcing her fulfilment to Diamond Logistics.
