About Us

Exporting is a complex process, as each country has its own set of requirements exporters are required to meet, and thereafter, find the right market mix to fulfil their export aspirations. These complexities, most often prevent entrepreneurs from entering the export market or reaching their potential.

At bConnect we opened our doors to help you overcome these barriers and simplify your export process, while connecting you with the right partners. Our Sri Lankan heritage gives us a better understanding of local products / services, businesses & processes and we use our Australian expertise to offer the right marketing mix for you to enter and be sustainable in the Asia Pacific Region. We have the expertise to guide you, provide you with the right access to channels and formulate a tailor-made solution in managing your export market.

We are a subsidiary of the B dynamic group, starting from humble beginnings in 2005 as a promotional business, our service offering has expanded to product sourcing to fulfilment to operations management and we are now one of the leading logistics and distribution companies based in Sydney, Australia. We will be adding a technology and outsourcing arm to our portfolio with the goal to be the preferred partner for e commerce businesses in Australia.
