Liverpool FC opens state-of-the-art international retail fulfilment centre

Liverpool FC has officially opened its first international fulfilment centre, which will help fans receive retail orders faster, cheaper, and more efficiently.

The new state-of-the-art warehouse is located in Roermond, the Netherlands, and is in partnership with UPS, LFC’s Official Global Logistics and Shipping partner. The multi-client fulfilment centre uses 100% renewable energy from 10,001 solar panels and will allow the club’s retail arm to best support its ambitious international strategy.

LFC currently ships to 180 countries, and 16 standalone club stores around the world sell official LFC merchandise to its global fan base. UPS’s global integrated network will strengthen LFC’s global retail and e-commerce operations, benefiting LFC supporters.

Order processing and club merchandise delivery to UK supporters will continue at the Reds distribution centre in Merseyside, which will stay open and fully operational.

New technology systems and additional staff training will upgrade the centre.
