MTM handles downstream shipments in Queensland. Previously stock had to be palletised when loading to minimize handling costs once a container had landed in Australia. This constraint meant that although stock could physically fit into one container- we often had to use 2 or 3 since the product is an awkward shape. With the help of a 3PL and flat rate unloading services – Turnaround and freight costs have been significantly reduced.
After spending years perfecting a brand that is palatable to online consumers. The next logical step is to outsource as much of the work as possible whilst still maintaining a healthy margin to input ratio. Outsourcing fulfillment to a 3PL increased the amount of time available to focus on marketing and brand development. By entrusting stock fulfilment to a small operator it has made it possible to solve problems much faster than using FBA or similar services.
The FMCG market is very competitive. Freight can also get very complicated with many add-on compliance costs such as correct labeling, insurance, DG declarations, and so forth. By intrusting MTM logistics with freight, clients have comparatively saved 25-65% on outbound logistics costs and decreased turnaround times by up to 3 days in some situations. Beyond that having an up-front quote that rarely changes helps budget and on-charge with confidence. It is assumed that a single national network carrier would be adequate for all distribution needs yet with the know-how that an experienced freight forwarder brought to the table is invaluable to ensure things go smoothly.
After developing an e-commerce brand that aims to be a cost leader that provides national distribution the goal is to hold stay true to JIT methodologies. After identifying a small cluster of distributors that had products that were not available in other states- A simple arbitrage strategy was developed. Essentially buy here, sell there is the game. Going down the dropshipping route was not an option as it would expose suppliers to customers and vice-versa. Entrusting a 3PL that would keep our trade secrets was paramount in the success of our store. MTM Transport and Logistics currently holds that trust and with adequate marketing, essentially no capital and a contact list: it is possible to earn a passive income.
