wnDirect Launches Nine Lanes for Online Retail in Middle East

wnDirect can now offer retailers online delivery to Oman, Libya, Lebanon, Bahrain, UAE and more.

wnDirect has launched nine new lanes to support the growth of online retail in the Middle East. 

Representing its most ambitious launch to date wnDirect can now offer retailers delivery solutions to:

• Oman
• Libya
• Lebanon
• Bahrain
• Saudi Arabia
• Kuwait
• Qatar
• Egypt

Discussing the launch Stuart Hill, wnDirect MD said, “The Middle East is an incredibly exciting region in terms of eCommerce growth and opportunity hence the reason we have invested a great deal of time and effort into developing lanes for the region. We recognise that both U.K. and U.S. retailers are going to be keen to take advantage of the opportunities there and we wanted to make sure we came to market with a robust and comprehensive offering. As with all of our lanes our Middle East services include knowledgeable customer service support and full tracking all provided at competitive rates. These new lanes also have an SLA of four days. It is an exciting next step in the wnDirect journey.”

The Middle East is on an upward trajectory in terms of eCommerce growth with B2C sales expected to reach $15 billion by 2015. A recent report by Visa suggested that nowhere else in the world is growing as fast. The region saw a 45 percent increase in 2012 and there is significant growth opportunity still as, according to Google, only 15 percent of Middle East businesses have an online presence.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
