Fulfillment service for e-commerce companies

Take advantage - outsource logistics - warehouse management - order processing of goods.

Fulfilment takes over the entire processing of incoming orders from customers for the online retailer. The service helps companies in the retail sector to make their logistics processes more efficient.

The fulfilment service includes warehousing, automatic order retrieval, assembling the items and shipping the goods to the end customers. Also, tracking orders and accepting customer returns at the centre.

In the field of logistics, Subke GmbH is a classic 3 PL fulfilment service provider for companies outside Hamburg.

As a start-up, you will probably first do the packing and shipping to the end customer yourself.

Specialised fulfilment services at Subke

Product logistics with special solutions at the fulfilment service provider Subke.

Serial numbers

We manage the unique serial numbers(MSN) for your products. We can offer you two methods for this.

1) We assign the serial number to the product when packing the order. The assigned serial number can be transmitted to your shop or you will receive an overview as a .csv download later.

2) You assign a serial number to each product beforehand. This is retrieved from the shop, which we scan during packing and assign to the order.

Batch management

We can scan production batches at goods receipt and assign them to a specific batch. You can assign an MPN (Manufacturer Part Number) to each item.

This gives you as a trader the control of the delivered and sold products of certain batches.


We manage the best before date (BBD) of your goods. We can proceed according to the FIFO principle in the warehouse.

This gives you full control over the perishability of your products


We can manage attributes of your products. Do you have products with different properties? When the order is retrieved, the attributes are also transmitted. Accordingly, we can pick and pack exactly the product you want. The stock quantity decreases in total and the product with the assigned attribute.


Do you offer product bundles in your online shop? We manage the stock quantity of the associated individual products. When ordering, the quantity of each individual product and the bundle will be reduced. We pick and pack the individual products accordingly and update the inventory.

Number of pieces divisible

You can make the number of pieces of your goods divisible in the system. In this way, partial quantities can be sent to the customer. This option offers the possibility to sell 1 kg goods, also optionally in 0.5 kg quantities.
