DHL eCommerce sets up Melbourne distribution center to support exports

DHL eCommerce has scarcely declared the opening of its Melbourne distribution center in Tullamarine, placed along with DHL Global Forwarding’s 16,700 sq. m. facility. The new distribution center will use DHL’s routes and networks for deriving cost efficiency in exporting e-commerce products from Australia to New Zealand, U.S, China, South East Asia and other popular markets. The Melbourne distribution center is expected to benefit from the sturdy growth of Australia’s e-commerce exports.

For the uninitiated, DHL eCommerce is a division of the world’s foremost logistics company, Deutsche Post DHL Group (DPDHL). The company has been operational in Australia since 1972 with its other divisions- DHL Supply Chain, DHL Express and DHL Global Forwarding.

In a statement made by Denise McGrouther, the MD of DHL eCommerce Australia, she credited the “Made in Australia” brand as being well trusted and recognized globally. According to reports, e-commerce is growing strongly in the country and 78% of exporters in Australia are receiving orders via online channels. DHL eCommerce makes logistics easy and affordable to help Australian businesses sell internationally while working with ecommerce companies, marketplaces and direct customers, McGrouther added.

McGrouther believes that new models in operations are required to let businesses optimize processes and costs and simultaneously fulfill customer orders quickly. The businesses can utilize DHL’s scalable services to store their inventory closer to end consumers. With DHL Supply Chain’s widespread availability of warehousing facilities, DHL eCommerce has one of the biggest networks available to empower Australian businesses to succeed in the expanding e-commerce segment, she said further.

As per sources, the Melbourne distribution center will concentrate on exports weighing up to 2kgs being shipped to more than 220 countries & territories globally and up to 20kg to more major e-commerce markets like U.S, China, U.K, Germany, New Zealand and South East Asia. It will be well supported by other existing distribution centers in Sydney.
