If there is scope to add your requirement to get some economies of scale?

all the multi base fulfillment providers that I contacted basically said we were too small to interest them, so I think the only solution for small companies such as ours would be to contract fulfillment to two operators, one in the USA and one in the UK, for example; when you look for single base operations there's a lot more to choose from and you can find plenty of people willing to work with small and growing companies.
For ourselves, we decided to go with Swiss Post, who run a small fulfillment operation here in Lyon, dropping the idea of going for a multi center solution. maybe we'll come back to it when (if!) we get a little bigger.
