Online Retail Logistics Conference

Online Retail Logistics will focus on ways to create efficient supply chains to support the increase in online shopping

24 - 25 September 2015 | Parkroyal Darling Harbour, Sydney

Sponsor & Exhibit

Online retail continues to grow in Australia with an estimated worth of $22.1 billion last year, an increase of 7% on the year before. According to National Australia Bank, Australia's online retail spending increased to $17.1 billion in the 12 months to May 2015. As the market continues to grow it is also constantly evolving. Suppliers are racing to keep up with an increasingly mobile customer, to outdo their competitors and to provide impeccable customer service. The impact of this growth and evolution, of course, directly influences the logistics and distribution industries. Customers shop online for price reason but also increasingly for convenience and the timely delivery of these goods plays a critical role in customer satisfaction.

Together with an analysis of revolving commercial conditions and business models, the 2015 agenda will review the existing challenges for Australian online retailers and showcase the innovative solutions for retailers, e-tailers, fulfilment specialists and logistics companies in unlocking new potential. Central to the discussion will be the theme of - ‘Creating efficiency supply chains to serve your customer’

Topics for 2015 include:

- Australia's online retailing legislation and consumer protection laws
- The impact of Australia Post's changing business model and potential privatization
- The changing logistics model for international online retailers looking for space in Australia
- Growth of hybrid models with traditional bricks and mortar retailers expanding online presence
- The challenge of rural consumers in Australia
