Tigers Logistics opens smart Sydney hub to support e-commerce growth

By Rachelle Harry

Tigers Logistics has opened a new hub in Yennora in Sydney, Australia, to support domestic and international e-commerce growth.

The new facility is part of Tigers’ two-year strategy involving investments into e-commerce and B2B verticals, and global expansion.

The warehouse is fitted with Tigers’ automated transport sortation system and SmartHub:Connect technologies, which make it possible for customers to manage orders and view their inventory remotely.

Frank Cafasso, managing director of Tigers Australia, commented: “The way we all shop is changing and will continue to change. E-commerce in Australia will increase not only for domestic but also international (cross-border) trade, and our new Sydney facility is expected to handle an initial 20% of our B2C e-commerce traffic, with predicted yearly increases.

“The Yennora facility, with its state-of-the-art systems, will keep Tigers agile in adapting to the evolving e-commerce market.”
