Many Australian businesses often don’t know how to access the opportunity in Asia and how to stand out. Logistics infrastructure is not uniform across all countries in Asia, regulations vary, and last mile fulfillment is challenging. Businesses need to span across mass-volume distribution with scalable supply chain processes, while market-centric marketing, payments, and customer service remain a challenge for less experienced exporters.
At the same time, huge opportunity exists in the SE Asia market. Southeast Asia’s internet economy is slated to be worth more than US$240 billion by 2025 with e-commerce predicted to be worth US$102 billion, with 40% of the total value of the region’s internet economy to be driven by e-commerce.
Our marketplace is powered by Alpina-X – our purpose built ecommerce platform that is the bridge from Australia to Asia, providing a seamless, stable and scalable full-service cross-border e-commerce solution. It is an omnichannel ecommerce platform solution that includes marketplace, supply chain, marketing, and customer service functionality for high quality, trusted brands.
Australian suppliers are positioned to operate under the Ally’s Basket brand leveraging their existing domestic ecommerce processes. Alternatively suppliers can employ Alpina-X as a solution to enable cross border trade direct to overseas markets in SE Asia.
