Fulfilmentcrowd, headquartered in Chorley, which specializes in accessible and cost-effective logistics services for fast-growing e-commerce retailers, has appointed Kevin Plantier to drive the growth of the company’s distribution center in Lieusaint.
It comes from distribution software company DSD Europe in the Netherlands. He will draw on 11 years of experience across multiple industries to develop Fulfilmentcrowd’s offering to France-based e-commerce retailers.
Kevin said, “What really excites me about joining Fulfillmentcrowd and having the opportunity to grow the business in France is the company’s customer-centric approach. Everything from transparent pricing to instantly available quotes, customer onboarding and improvements to the mobile customer app has been designed to make life easier for e-commerce retailers.

“Online shopping in France is about five years behind the levels of maturity we see in the UK and many e-commerce retailers in the country are still perfecting their sales and distribution strategies. There’s nothing else on the market like Fulfillmentcrowd’s “nothing to hide” pricing and transparent digital-first inventory management solution, and it will really appeal to retailers looking for ways to improve the efficiency and rapidly scale their operations.
Fulfilmentcrowd opened its Lieusaint warehouse in December 2021 to initially support growing exports and international shipments for its UK customers, following BGF’s investment.
The company has driven growth by offering SMB e-commerce retailers a supply chain management service that combines cloud-based software and an innovative mobile app platform developed by in-house engineers.
Lee Thompson, Managing Director of Fulfillmentcrowd, said: “We have created strong demand among UK-based SMEs selling large volumes of goods, by removing the friction of outsourcing the preparation, packaging and delivery of customer orders.
“An important part of this involves an intuitively designed smartphone app, which is deliberately intended to be used as little as possible by retailers, while giving them full control over customer orders and stock inventory.
