Where we Started from
I spent about 7 years as the CEO of a large digital marketing platform that built all sorts of solutions for e-commerce marketers, affiliates and enterprises. In that time, the number one issue that our e-commerce customers had was finding a good place in the USA for fulfillment - which was something we couldn’t help with at the time. Our customers explained that shipping through China was too slow and problematic but that prices in the USA were outrageous.
After having left the company that I worked with, it never left my mind that so many people needed a good solution for fulfillment so my business partner and I started looking around to see what the options were and what we found was that all of the USA based fulfillment centers did in fact have outrageous pricing! Not only that, most of them had a slew of upsells, extra charges, very high minimums, storage costs and a bunch of other things that made it impossible for people in e-commerce to work with.
We kept our eyes open and in a short while, we got some friends and family interested in the idea and opened up a fulfillment center that could take small orders. It really just started out as a small side project but people began to refer us by word of mouth and we had to begin scaling in no time. The rest is history and today we’re a fully staffed, fully equipped - turnkey fulfillment center. We’re still a family and friends run business but we’ve scaled that using all of our experience and are able to offer the absolute best fulfillment solution in the USA that there is!
