Samenvatting

This research project is a requirement for the fulfilment of a bachelor’s degree in international business studies at the Hogeschool Utrecht. The study is an export plan for B2C Europe’s Spanish branch, and it is written to investigate if the branch could successfully expand its services to the European market. B2C Europe is an independent service provider of international distribution services and return shipping services, with a focus on European destinations. B2C Europe has multiple branches across Europe. They mainly focus on the distribution of mail and packages. Their customers are primarily online retailers, postal operators and efulfilment companies. What makes the topic of this thesis useful for the company is that the Spanish branch wants to expand its operations. The main question of the research project is: What are the opportunities and challenges for B2C Europe's Spanish branch to start exporting into European markets and if there is a market, how to penetrate this market? The sub-questions of the research are: 1. Who are B2C Europe's potential customers, and how to target them? 2. Who are B2C Europe's competitors, and how do they differentiate themselves from them? 3.

How does the logistical structure of the company need to change to anticipate on the expansion to other markets? 6.
