WINEDEPOT shipped a total of 15,764 cases in January, up +727% Month on Month (MoM) on last year. In total 7,408 orders were processed over the period, up +605% MoM. This equated to an average of 2.13 cases shipped per order, higher than the 1.85 case average over the previous 12 months, as the trend in purchasing wine directly from wineries continued to build momentum. CEO Dean Taylor is extremely pleased with how the business has started the year stating.
“January is typically one of the quietest months of the year for wine sales. The fact that we were up so significantly on prior year and only down just over one third on our peak cases shipped in December demonstrates the underlying growth in our logistics business. Even without the expected uplift from the B2B marketplace, I expect it won’t be long before we’re setting new records again.”
