In November 21, LR Data Science sets up in Tel Aviv to open its Retail and Distribution Data services for Food eBusiness in Israel. The main platform will be Kashrut Baking Kosher Ingredients, which will be Market Testing products in the USA.
What LR Data Science does for Data Market Tests in Israel?
We help products like this Har Bracha Tahini to test Markets in US and Europe.
In a very fast Market experiment, we list for Sales items in Europe and in the USA to measure the expected volume.
The Experiment steps are as follow:
- We list the Product on our Marketplace + Amazon,
- We promote the products to our existing Client base,
- We test a couple of highly targeted Paid Ads campaign on Google, Facebook or Linkedin,
- We grow the volume until it reaches volumes that trigger interest to our bigger Customers at Retail Chains and major Distributors.
This is the fastest way to measure the success of a new product launch on a new Market.
Food eBusiness in Israel is booming
As Amazon has reintroduced free shipping to Israel (after withdrawing due to the COVID outbreak), we are investing in getting a full Food eBusiness operating in Israel.
Free shipping is now available, but only for certain items and for orders over $65. Shoppers can find items eligible for free shipping on Amazon’s site, and will find out about estimated delivery times during online checkout. The delivery schedule will vary depending on the items and address. Note though that the orders are still subject to Israeli import taxes.
The global tech and consumer giant has had a shifting delivery policy in Israel over the last several years, and sparked some controversy. In July of 2018, the company launched free shipping to several international destinations, including Israel, but only for a limited number of products and orders over $80.
Shipping from and to Israel is still a struggle
While local Postal services have been upgrading their services, we still need to use Premium services like FedEx and UPS to ship from Israel. Shipping to Israel is less of a problem with the traditional postal services.
The shipping process is not always smooth. Sometimes you have to go searching for and comparing information as to who is ready to provide the cheapest or fastest delivery service, and sometimes you are haunted by doubt as to whether it truly is a secure delivery. Sometimes, when we are in need to send an urgent shipment, we get appalled at the price of such a service which, considering the distance 10860, appears to be far too high.
At LR Data Science, our Warehouse partners can handle Frozen Items and we use FedEx’s Deep Frozen shipping solution to carry items.
LR Data Science will be located in Bnei Brak
We settled in the BSR Tower 3 on Masada 9 in Bnei Brak. From that location, our local rep will work with our current and future vendors.
