    first real post here, so be kind!

    we've reached the phyiscal limits of our home business (equivalent of a 20ft container of stock in our house/large rear shed) and my wife spends alot of her day simply packing orders and posting - around 5-20 orders a day. We use sendle/auspost business so all postage is picked up at our door.

    but we are now looking at placing larger orders with our suppliers in India and boosting sales. we need more storage area, and also people to help pack/send. are there services in Melbourne that offer this kinda thing. i.e. store, and pack/send on demand?

    we'd like to focus on digital products while allowing this part of the business to keep building. thanks for any insights.

    Congratulations on growing you home business that’s awesome. I own a 3PL for Small-Medium businesses based in Sydney. I know your looking for a Melbourne facility and I’d be happy to provide some support and answer questions in helping you find a suitable 3PL in Melbourne.

    Looked at Fulfilio, but they have a min requirement of 400 orders per month. We are yet to hit that and our partners are behind due to covid-19, anyone know of smaller 3PLs in melbourne that cater for 200-300 orders a month?

    Hi Cam,

    Flying Solo newbie here,

    I have a small warehouse in Dandenong South and I am looking to expand on my current business line of Warehouse Packaging Supplies... I'd be more than happy to have a chat with you for further details on what you are looking for.

    To be honest, this is the kind of work I could take on, to compliment my current line, already having warehouse packaging supply business ... ie boxes, padded envelopes, packaging tape etc etc
