Every business struggles with the same thing. Satisfying customers. Giving them what they want, when they want it, and giving it to them in the way they want to be engaged.
Twenty years ago businesses drove the transaction. If a customer wanted to purchase an item, they went to a store, browsed the products available, and paid for the item in the way the business wanted them to pay.
This is no longer the case.
Today it’s the customer who drives the transaction and they expect a lot of flexibility from businesses.
Depending on the party logistics (PL) of delivering your products to customers, the expectations remain the same for fast, secure and reliable services. This applies to Second Party Logistics (2PL) businesses who directly deliver their own products, Third Party Logistics (3PL) services with a fleet or courier system, and Fourth Party Logistics (4PL) companies managing deliveries on behalf of 3PL businesses.
“Electronic payments, eCommerce and digital adoption demand have been fast-forwarded by 5-10 years in 8 weeks,” Australian CEO Council, May 2020.
How can businesses satisfy all of these customer demands?
A 2PL, 3PL, or 4PL integration provider will guarantee home delivery to your customers is secure and fast.
Integrating your business with a logistics provider has never been more important as customers not only need and desire home deliveries from your business, they expect it.
It’s why we joined forces with one of Australia’s best transport and logistics partners in Capital Transport. Their fleet of more than 1,500 vehicles specialises in transporting anything from paperclips to tonnes of steel in less than four hours throughout our metropolitan cities.

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in 2020 being defined by a huge uptake of business-to-customer (B2C) payment services, such as contactless transactions and online shopping.
What a year 2020 has been. We all had specific hopes and aspirations for the year and as we know, it’s turned out to be a very different outcome for everyone. Two words that sum up 2020 are uncertain and unpredictable, and while it’s been a tough year for business in general, we’ve decided to take a quick trip down memory lane and look back at the positives, the happy moments, and what we achieved for our customers.
Despite innovation in the payment methods offered to consumers, the way businesses pay each other has changed very little over the last 40 years.
