eBay has announced a partnership with Fulfilio, a business of Australia Post, to offer a national fulfilment network to its sellers. The new service, eBay Fulfilment Partner, will provide eBay sellers with the best price to pick, pack and deliver their eBay orders, with distribution by Australia Post’s unparalleled delivery network.
With more than 53.2 million eBay parcels shipped domestically in last 12 months alone, this will be welcome news to the eBay seller community.
Fulfilio is a new business of Australia Post, providing eCommerce software, warehousing, ‘pick and pack’, and delivery services tailored for eCommerce merchants.
Fulfilio will provide warehouse locations across four major capital cities (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth) enabling inventory to be located as close to buyers as possible, and therefore ensuring faster fulfilment times.
“At eBay our number one priority is to support the 40,000 Australian businesses that operate via eBay. In this partnership with Fulfilio and Australia Post we are giving our sellers Australia’s most comprehensive fulfilment network with over 57,000 square metres of storage and distribution space across the country,” David Ramadge, Senior Director of Product and Shipping at eBay said.
“We’re committed to helping Australian businesses take advantage of the benefits of eCommerce. As Australian consumers become more savvy online shoppers, we’re seeing the demand for more greater value, convenience and speed of delivery. Online retailers will need to lift the bar to compete with global players who already do this very well. Fulfilio – a start-up backed by Australia Post – is ready to power Australian eCommerce businesses of all sizes to a whole new level with faster fulfilment options through our national warehouse network, customised pick and pack solutions and direct lodgement into Australia Post’s unrivalled delivery network,” Ben Franzi, General Manager of Parcel and Express at Australia Post said.
