Singapore: DHL eCommerce, a division of logistics company Deutsche Post DHL Group, has launched a new Fulfillment Centre in Hong Kong, adding to its global fulfillment network in US, Mexico, India, Europe and Australia. Catering to the growing demand for cross-border products in Asia Pacific particularly from the Greater China region, the new Fulfillment Centre will allow e-tailers to move their goods closer to their end customers, responding to their demands of quick and easy delivery.
The Fulfillment Centre, located within DHL Supply Chain's one million sq ft Interlink operation, will primarily work to provide overseas e-tailers with fast and flexible shipping solutions that integrates inbound freight, inventory and last-mile delivery in an one-stop solution. This is crucial to merchants looking to move into the Greater China market, as customs and regulatory regulations very often serve as major setbacks in running a smooth inbound cross-border clearance. Running the products through an established Fulfillment Centre mitigates these risks; and coupled with flexible warehousing, closer proximity to the end consumer and last-mile options, these solutions will help e-tailers successfully leverage the booming e-commerce market.
The centre's design is primed to accommodate three key features of an ideal fulfillment system, accommodating a front-end integration with a range of popular marketplaces and webshop platforms alongside multichannel order management, as well as last-mile solutions for quick and accurate deliveries. With a focus on cost-effectiveness throughout the entire process, all of the centre's services operate on a pay-per use model with no capital spend or fixed costs.
