yfood, known for its complete meal solutions, sought to make its products more accessible to consumers in the United Kingdom. The partnership with everstox allowed yfood to establish customized food logistics with local fulfillment and efficient shipping, addressing previous challenges related to long delivery times from their German warehouse. This move aimed to enhance the customer experience and accelerate yfood’s European expansion plans.

yfood’s success story in detail.
yfood had previously sold its products in the DACH area (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) in 2020. With its growing success and product distribution across Europe, one of their core markets, the UK, has posed an operational challenge. Both the customer experience and operational costs to deliver UK customer orders from a central warehouse in Germany have not been generating satisfactory results. With an avg. of 4-8 days delivery time and €16-18 shipping costs for UK parcels, a more efficient solution had to be implemented to cement a strong market leading position not only in the DACH area, but also in the UK..
Since 2020, yfood delivers UK orders now with a fully tech-driven fulfillment approach: Connected once to the everstox platform empowers Operations Managers to automate order fulfillment processes from its commercial systems (Shopify and Oracle Netsuite) to all corresponding fulfillment centers. What’s more, using the everstox platform ensures the tracking of all key data of SKUs and product batches stored, fulfilled and shipped within the everstox network’s fulfillment centers. Choosing a local fulfillment and shipping setup also reduced yfood’s operational costs (avg. of €3-4 per parcel shipment) and delivery times (avg. of 1-2 days) resulting in more customer conversions than ever before.
Smart access to an interconnected network of pre-qualified logistics providers united by one software is what everstox stands for. It didn’t take long for yfood to choose everstox due to its flexibility, cost advantages and software-empowered processes. Ever since the collaboration between yfood and everstox, Operations Managers enjoy a high degree of peace of mind during fulfillment and shipping processes – no matter the amount of order volumes. Within all steps of the supply chain flow, Operations Managers always know what SKUs and batches are being fulfilled and can rely on automation, enabling them to focus on what matters most.
