The e-commerce market in Australia is booming and as a result there’s an increase in demand for fulfillment services. According to International Trade Administration, the Australian e-commerce market is predicted to reach 32 billion dollars by 2024. But a lot of Australian e-commerce businesses are struggling with order fulfillment. In fact, majority of them are now looking to outsource their fulfillment to a third party.

Why Choose Locad for Australia Fulfillment

Australians spending habits have changed vastly over the last two years largely as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Even under lockdown, Australians managed to acquire much-needed essentials that made their situations more tolerable. You can thank the 3PL industry for helping sustain the Australian economy.

And Locad was at the frontlines of that transition from traditional on-site shopping to e-commerce channels. Locad enabled every type of service provider—from startups to traditional enterprises—to serve their customers at the most critical time. 

To help online retailers flourish, Locad has established fulfillment centers across Australia to provide e-commerce order fulfillment, storage and distribution services for small to large businesses.

Common challenges faced by e-commerce businesses in Australia

1. Shipping delays

With long and unpredictable shipping times, businesses are struggling to meet customer expectations. Customers now want everything fast and delayed deliveries only hurt business reputation. In fact, 61% online consumers are willing to pay extra for same-day delivery. Due to poor shipping capabilities and other hiccups in operations, small businesses are losing customers and eventually going out of business.

2. Location constraints

If your warehouse is not closer to where your customers live, it becomes difficult for your products to reach them. This is a big challenge for e-commerce sellers in Australia as the population is widely dispersed. Even with a centralised warehouse, delivery to some rural areas can be very expensive and slow. This often results in losing customers who live outside of major metropolitan areas. Tying up with a third-party logistics who have fulfillment centers located near your customers will improve delivery timelines.

3. Poor inventory management

Inefficient inventory management is another common challenge faced by Australian e-commerce businesses. Overstocking and stockouts are both damaging to the business. When there is too much inventory, it ties up working capital and leads to storage costs. Whereas, if you run out of stock, you risk losing customers to other sellers. A strong inventory management system can help you avoid these issues.

4. Lack of personalization

In the growing e-commerce market, it’s becoming harder for Australian sellers to stand out from the competition. They are unable to personalize messaging and shopping experience. As a result, it’s causing customers to disconnect from their brand and are losing out on potential sales. Personalisation can differentiate your e-commerce business and build customer loyalty. 

5. Inadequate customer service

Customer service is an integral part of the e-commerce experience. But, many businesses, big or small, fail to provide good customer service. This often results in loss of sales and customers. Lack of staff, training or other resources can be a few reasons. Partnering with a full-fledged 3PL ensures that your customers have a great shopping experience.

Don’t just take our word for it

Australia’s No.1 health supplements online store came at the right time when health and nutrition are becoming priorities among Australians.

MuscleU CEO Jordan Harrisson stated that his company, which was founded in 2012, grew in size over the years due to increasing market demand for home-based health and wellness products. 

“Yes, the gym makes up a portion of a healthy lifestyle but a large majority of what makes up a healthy lifestyle is done outside of a gym.”

He expected that this industry would only continue to grow as more Australians become more aware with keeping their health and lifestyle in check, even without the need to go to the gym. He hopes that his partnership with Locad would be maintained and even be strengthened further, especially as Locad continues to remain hands-on with his company’s growth. 

“We noticed that with Locad, the speed of the customer service team has allowed us to be on top of more issues, much faster. That [has] been a huge change because what that allows us to do is get back to our clients faster and make sure that if there are any issues or concerns, we address them quick enough [so] that we don’t lose that customer to a competitor.”
