Vdepot fulfils for a wide range of fashion businesses, from independent boutiques to global clothing brands.
As your fulfilment partner we can look after the entire process for you; from receiving your goods into our secure warehouse, to carefully packing them for delivery, to managing customer returns. We take care of the day-to-day so you can focus on building your fashion business.
Fashion Fulfilment with Vdepot
Vdepot can make returns management a simple and painless process for you and your customers. We inspect each returned item to assess if it’s in a resellable condition. If a returned item meets your standards for re-sale, it is simply re-added to your inventory. We can steam returned garments for you so that they are fit for re-sale.
The presentation of each order, i.e. how your products are packaged, is essential to how customers experience your brand. We can use your branded packing in the fulfilment process, as well as offering customised gift wrapping, gift messaging and reworking services. We can also prepare gift deliveries for your influencer campaigns.
Only pay for the space you occupy each week. Your products will have their own dedicated space within one of our warehousing facilities - but Vdepot is responsive to your needs and the size of that space can constantly adapt to your requirements.
Located in Norwich, East of England, we keep site rental costs low while still being close to the major UK ports - ready to send & receive your goods in the UK, Europe & the rest of the world. We offer next-day delivery and work with a vast network of carrier partners.

Depending on how many SKUs you have and your stock quantities, it takes on average 2 working days from Vdepot receiving your products to fulfilling customer orders. You can still accept orders on your webshop and marketplace accounts during that time – these orders will have 2 working days added to their delivery date. In some cases, we have been able to get our new clients set up in 1 working day.
