Online Retail Logistics Conference

Creating efficient supply chains to seamlessly serve your customer

28 - 29 April 2016 | Grace Hotel, Sydney

Sponsor & Exhibit

Online retail continues to grow in Australia with an estimated worth of $22.1 billion last year - a 7% increase on the year before. According to the NAB, Australia’s spent $17.5 billion on online retail in the 12 months to August 2015. This level is equivalent to 7.1% of spending at traditional bricks & mortar retailers as measured by the ABS (excluding cafes, restaurants and takeaway food, to create a like-for-like comparison) in the 12 months to July 2015.

As the market continues to grow it is also constantly evolving. The impact of this growth and evolution flows directly to the logistics and distribution industries too. Customer satisfaction is key, supply chain visibility is increasingly important and the price war is on for so many retailers.
