Business description

The company has built a distinguished fulfilment business model that caters to online sellers who typically find it difficult to outsource storage and pick and pack responsibilities due to having low order volumes. 

The business has been operating and refining its model for 11 years, proving it is robust, reliable and profitable. The company’s in-house, innovative cloud-based fulfilment service provides an ideal platform to expand the business’s offering across the world as only a racked warehouse, an internet connection and very few staff are required. 

Our clients are now offering the company for sale for the benefit of potential acquirers with the desire and capacity to expand the business. 

Offers invited.

Highlights

  • Resolves the current shortcomings of online selling and unreliable delivery, through innovative fulfilment services which have been optimised for vendors with low daily order volumes. 
  • Developed and owns the IP of innovative software that not only manages storage, fulfilment and client accounts, but also integrates shopping carts, marketplaces and couriers, enabling automated data acquisition and transfer from the first moment of order import through to pick and pack routing, preparing shipping labels and client tracking notifications. 
  • Retains over 240 active clients, supplying the company with a reliable stream of revenue. Money on client accounts results in no bad debtors. 
  • Overheads are low due to the workforce requiring little training and multiple management roles being surplus to requirements. As such, new fulfilment centres can be quickly deployed anywhere in the world.
