Homewares fulfilment centre opens in Melbourne 

E-commerce fulfilment provider eStore Logistics has opened an exclusive fulfilment centre for online homewares and furniture retailer, Temple & Webster.  

The new 25,000 sqm dedicated facility in Derrimut will process thousands of orders a day. 

The warehouse is designed specifically for safe storage with fast and accurate despatching of goods for the retailer.  

Leigh Williams, eStore Logistics Founder, says personalised fulfilment centres are key to facilitating growth for clients.  

We’re noticing a market for this type of personalised service. As businesses like Temple & Webster grow in size and orders they have more specialised fulfilment requirements,” Leigh says.  

There will be more than 90 new staff at the site’s peak operational capacity. The first 12,835 sqm is live and operational, but the second 11,952 sqm will be running in September 2022.  

Mark Coulter, Chief Executive at Temple and Webster, believes the centre will help facilitate growth for the retailer.  

Our number one focus is to ensure an optimum end-to-end experience for our customers, and our relationship with eStore Logistics enables us to offer a best-in-class fulfilment service while keeping our business asset-light,” he says.  

Specialist supply chain and property firm TMX helped facilitate the purchase.  

Nathan Bingham, Chief Customer Officer of TMX, says the site was chosen to provide a flexible operation that can be scaled up based on business growth.  

This commitment has seen our relationship with eStore Logistics extend to sourcing seven sites across the country totalling in excess of 100,000 sqm,” Nathan says.
