Poland’s listed e-commerce group Allegro launched the pilot stage of a new fulfillment service on 13 September through which selected merchants will be able to store, sell and replenish their merchandise directly from an Allegro warehouse.
A leading name in Polish online retail, Allegro has been on the market for 20 years and has, according to its own statistics, around 20 million customers a month visiting its platform.
“On September 13, we are launching a pilot stage of the service named One Fulfillment by Allegro,” the firm’s business development officer, Grzegorz Czapski, told PAP.
The new system could take away some of the logistics burden from merchants and speed up delivery times, an increasingly important factor for online buyers.
Some 30-40 percent of merchants cooperating with Allegro say they are interested in fulfillment support, according to Czapski. The pilot scheme aims to gauge the potential of the service and actual interest among sellers.
