Hi there, Cristina.
Ren here from the Shopify Support team. Thanks for reaching out.
The great thing about Dropshipping is that your supplier will be handling the fulfilment of your orders. You would just need to ensure that your chosen suppliers, on Oberlo or AliExpress, ship to your target market of Europe. Most supplier will list their shipping destinations and the shipping length in their account information. ?
The make the process even easier, I'd definitely suggest downloading the Oberlo Chrome Extension here - http://bit.ly/2BYdFjj. The extension helps with importing products and fulfilling orders. You can check out Oberlo's How to Use the Oberlo Chrome Extension guide for more information - http://bit.ly/2C1paqr.
I'd also recommend checking out The Ultimate Guide to Dropshipping here - http://bit.ly/2BZE6VZ. As the name suggest, this guide goes through the entire dropshipping process, and is full of helpful tips and advice.
I hope these are of use to you, and if you have any follow up questions please let me know. ?
