Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
Speedpak Contract Services is a packing and order fulfilment partner for manufacturers, distributors and online retailers. We offer a reliable, efficient and innovative technology-driven service that ensures transparency and traceability for our customers.
How are you different?
Our expertise in e-commerce fulfilment and reverse logistics is based on over 20 years of experience and success in warehouse management, manufacturing, assembly-to-order and logistics.
As an expert partner, outsourcee or one-off service provider we bring strength to a brand by enabling online retailers to scale and expand rapidly without them having to take on the burden of warehousing and extra staff.
The great diversity of projects we undertake, ranging from simple to complex and featuring seasonal surges and flash sales, provides us with unique insights and valuable learning. With this learning – and a keen problem-solving approach – we work hard to design the best packing and order fulfilment solution for each new customer project.
Why will the company / product do well?
For us, the key drivers of success are continuous service improvement, flexibility and adopting a partnering approach with our customers.
Meanwhile e-commerce continues to grow as worldwide online retail sales are predicted to exceed $4tn by 2020. China’s voracious demand for western goods and embrace of online shopping means it now accounts for almost 50% of all e-commerce activity. This, coupled with decreasing shipping costs, is creating big opportunities for European retailers and the businesses that service them.
Brexit will bring challenges but will also increase our attractiveness as an EU-based fulfilment and distribution hub.
Where are you based?
We are based in Dublin in the IDA-serviced Clonshaugh Business & Technology Park with excellent accessibility to Dublin Port, the Dublin Tunnel, Dublin Airport, the M50 and M1 (to Belfast). Our proximity to a strong local distribution network supports a seamless service.
