eBay teams up with Australia Post to fight Amazon

Australia Post has set up an e-commerce 3PL to handle e-commerce warehousing and deliveries.

Fulfilio is the new business of Australia Post, providing e-commerce software, warehousing, ‘pick-and-pack’, and delivery services tailored for e-commerce merchants. Fulfilio will provide warehousing 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 delivery times.

eBay.com.au has now announced a partnership with Fulfilio to offer a national 3PL 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 delivery network. There have been more than 53.2 million eBay parcels shipped domestically in last 12 months alone.

With a network of 40,000 Australian sellers and more than 11 million Australians visiting eBay each month, eBay says it is able to offer its sellers the best rates, helping them reduce costs, save time and remain competitive. For example, on 500g parcels sellers will pay rates as low as $5.74 for pick, pack and delivery for a cross-town service, and $6.83 for interstate service – saving sellers up to 30% on picking and delivery costs (based on industry averages across picking, packing and last-mile costs).

eBay’s senior director of product and shipping Dave Ramadge said: “At eBay our number one priority is to support the 40,000 Australian businesses that operate via ebay.com.au. In this partnership with Fulfilio and Australia Post, we are giving our sellers Australia’s most comprehensive delivery network with over 57,000 square metres of storage and distribution space across the country.

“We will continue to deliver sellers the lowest cost to pick, pack and deliver their eBay orders, so they can put their inventory closer to their customers and spend less time packing and more time selling.”
