What you need to know about last mile logistics in Australia

Find out what models Australian retailers for urban logistics.

The online retailing boom has driven logistics and industrial occupiers in Australia to consider different ways to manage last mile warehousing requirements. To analyse the current state of last mile logistics in the country, JLL says it is important to first understand the retailers’ existing strategies. 

JLL outlines four common models used for urban logistics by Australian retailers.

First, logistics are entirely sourced in-house by the operator. Secondly, the logistics company operates the warehouse, while the customer controls transportation, inventory levels, and warehouse investment. Thirdly, the logistics company controls the fulfillment of a stock that the retailer chooses to place in the warehouse. And lastly, the logistics company delivers fulfillment and stock management services, optimising inventory and fulfilment across locations.
