Exact Abacus launches alcohol fulfilment service

By Dan Wilson April 4, 2018 - 1:20 pm

Ecommerce fulfilment technology and services business, Exact Abacus has added to its list of capabilities after securing a premises licence to enable distribution of alcoholic beverages from its Lancashire hub.

The company has responded to growing consumer demand for purchasing alcoholic drinks online and spotted an opportunity to provide the specialist service to a fast developing segment of online retail.

The new license enables Exact Abacus to offer retailers a complete turnkey service for alcohol sales, including storage, handling, kitting, dedicated packaging and delivery through an extensive roster of trusted carrier partners.

Alcoholic beverage fulfilment adds to the services offered by Exact Abacus, including white glove, dangerous goods, over-sized goods, organic products and Amazon Seller Fulfilled Prime. They claim it demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing tailored fulfilment to online retailers of all sizes to help them scale their businesses effectively without tying up capital with investment in infrastructure or unique compliance requirements.

As part of our focus on being the pre-eminent fulfilment partner for eCommerce businesses in the UK, we are continuously investing in our capabilities and identifying new services where we can make a difference to customers. The direct to consumer food and drink sector is poorly served at the moment and we’re delighted that licensing our fulfilment centre will enable more start up and niche retailers to take advantage of a growing consumer enthusiasm for direct alcohol sales online, allowing them to build their business with the help of a trusted fulfilment specialist.
– Exact Abacus Sales and Marketing Director, Lee Thompson

It’s useful new service nut marketplaces in particular are strict about the sale of alcoholic products (ebay in particular) so it’s not clear how big the market for this service might be. That said alcohol sales grew strongly online in 2017 with one report saying there has been 33% growth in the sector.
