First Australian e-commerce platform for trucking industry launched

Buyparts.com.au, Australia’s first-ever e-commerce platform designed specifically for the commercial vehicle industry aftermarket, has now gone live.

The all-new online platform was developed to provide trade workshops, fleets, owner-drivers and the DIY scene with 24-7 access to commercial vehicle parts, consumables and associated workshop equipment.

Developed by truck industry professionals for industry professionals, the new website is said to be Australia’s first dedicated online marketplace catering to the booming aftermarket industry.

“In a fully digitalised world, transport businesses large and small are becoming increasingly frustrated by the lack of parts-related information that's available online,” buyparts.com.au’s Managing Director, Steve Tabacchiera, commented on the official launch.

“A large portion of our daily work has already moved to the online space, but the parts business is still based on a classic retail model and didn’t evolve as fast as the rest of the industry.

“At buyparts.com.au, we therefore believe there are only two alternatives for Australian manufacturing and transport businesses going forward – being a leader or a follower. We want to be a leader and invite the trucking industry to join us on this exciting journey.”

According to Tabacchiera, buyparts.com.au was designed to lead the digitalisation of Australia’s transport equipment sector from the front and provide a one-stop-shop for the trucking industry in the looming age of e-commerce.

“For most businesses in Australia, the future will involve doing more with less. However, it doesn’t mean you have to deliver less or reduce the quality of your work – you just need to find smart solutions to increase effectiveness. Digital business models like buyparts.com.au can do just that.

“Australia’s trucking industry has a long history of utilising technological innovations, and now is the time to make the next step and embrace the potential of online parts sourcing.”
