APS Fulfillment, Inc. Reacts to Higher Forecasts for U.S. Retail Sales Amid Stronger Online Sales

APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, comments on higher than expected 2016 U.S. retail sales forecast, due, in part, to stronger online sales.

According to one trade group, 2016 U.S. retail sales are going to be stronger than expected. The National Retail Federation said it expects retail sales to advance 3.4% in 2016 thanks in part to a stronger than expected start to the year and stronger online sales as the economy improves. (Source: Reynolds, T. “National Retail Federation Upgrades 2016 Economic Forecast,” nrf.com article, July 26, 2016; https://nrf.com/media/press-releases/national-retail-federation-upgrades-2016-economic-forecast.)

“At 3.4%, the 2016 U.S. retail sales is up slightly from the trade group’s initial forecast of 3.1%. This puts 2016’s retail growth in line with last year’s,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “The biggest growth segment though will come from online, with sales projected to increase between 7% and 10% in 2016. This is slightly better than previous expected as consumers are increasingly turning to e-commerce.”

Aultman explains that with consumer confidence levels high, retailers will need to ensure their warehousing and fulfillment needs are capable of exceeding their customer’s expectations, especially as it gets closer to the holiday season. Outsourcing warehousing and fulfillment services helps brands big or small, increase accuracy, reduce costs and operational overhead, and provides access to better delivery models.

Located in Southern Florida, APS Fulfillment. Inc. provides businesses that outsource their logistics needs with many competitive advantages. APS Fulfillment is close to all major transportation hubs. It’s just minutes from Interstate 95, 20 minutes from the Port Everglades and the Ft.

APS Fulfillment, Inc. Says Strong E-Commerce Sales Leading to Record-Setting Demand for Warehousing and Fulfillment

APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, weighs in on two reports showing strong e-commerce demand has created the tightest demand for warehousing and fulfillment in a generation.

“According to two new reports, businesses are leasing warehousing space at record levels as strong e-commerce drives companies to locate their fulfillment needs closer to major population centers,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “As opposed to sprawling rural sites, urban warehousing and fulfillment space helps brands ensure their products are on hand to meet their customers’ delivery expectations.”

During the second quarter, businesses leased 70.1 million square feet of space, a 6% increase over the same period in 2015. This also represents the most leased space in over 30 years. In a separate report, warehousing and fulfillment availability declined for a 25th consecutive quarter to just 8.8%. (Source: “Retailers Lease Warehouse Space at Record Pace,” wsj.com article, July 12, 2016; http://www.wsj.com/articles/retailers-lease-warehouse-space-at-record-pace-1468352243.)

“One of the biggest drivers of warehousing demand is location. This is also driving up rents,” Aultman adds. “While outsourcing to a warehousing company that is close to a major city center allows for faster fulfillment, it can also be more expensive than using a site far away from a city center. But not always.”

Aultman explains that while big-box warehousing are built far from urban centers, warehousing and fulfillment centers under 300,000 square feet are more commonly located in urban areas where costs are lower.

“APS Fulfillment is located in Southern Florida and adjacent to all major transportation hubs. It’s just minutes from Interstate 95 and only 40 minutes from the Miami International Airport,” Aultman adds. “It is also just 20 minutes from the Port Everglades, the top port in Florida, and 30 minutes from the Port of Miami—two of North America’s largest export hubs. These two ports are also in close proximity to South America, the Panama Canal, and Europe.”

“In addition to this enviable location, APS Fulfillment’s state-of-the-art inventory technology, and real-time shipping solutions means businesses can have their products received, inventoried, and shipped in just two days,” Aultman concludes.

APS Fulfillment, Inc. Reacts to U.S. Retail Sales as Consumers Show More Confidence

APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, is reacting to U.S. retail sales as consumers show more confidence.

According to the latest data, retail sales rose more than forecast as consumers continue to spend more. Retail sales increased 0.5% month-over-month in May, ahead of the 0.3% forecast. This follows a 1.3% increase in the previous month, which was the biggest gain in a year. It was also the second straight month of gains, with sales up 2.5% from a year ago. (Source: “Advance Monthly Sales for Retail and Food Services May 2016,” United States Census Bureau web site, June 14, 2016; http://www.census.gov/retail/marts/www/marts_current.pdf.)

“The recent data suggests American consumers are becoming more confident. And the momentum has continued into the summer months, as a gauge of U.S. consumer confidence reached its highest level of 2016 in June,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “American consumers have consistently been the biggest drivers of economic growth and the strong consumer sentiment survey suggests household spending will remain robust in the coming months and continue to be a key driver of the economy.” (Source: “Consumer Confidence Survey,” The Conference Board web site, June 25, 2016; https://www.conference-board.org/data/consumerconfidence.cfm.)

Aultman explains that businesses looking to build on the growing consumer confidence levels and increased spending should consider outsourcing their fulfillment and warehousing needs. Outsourcing can be an advantageous logistics strategy, as it saves on warehouse space, time, and money. Outsourcing to a fulfillment company with a proven history of providing fast, accurate services can also enhance customer satisfaction and increase brand retention.

“APS Fulfillment, Inc. is located close to all major land, air, and sea transportation hubs in Southern Florida. It also uses state-of-the-art real-time shipping solutions, meaning it receives an order the second it’s placed.

APS Fulfillment, Inc. Says Newly Opened Panama Canal Expansion Expected to Substantially Increase Traffic to East Coast Ports

APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, says the newly opened Panama Canal expansion is expected to substantially increase traffic to East Coast ports, including the Port of Miami.

On Sunday, June 26, the 10-year, $5.5-billion Panama Canal expansion project came to fruition and is expected to reshape the way goods are moved around the world. The expanded Panama Canal boasts nearly triple the capacity of the original canal, allowing ships to increase their volume from 5,000 containers up to 14,000 containers. (Source: “The $5.4 billion HOV lane: Will new Panama Canal expansion boost global trade?” usatoday.com article, June 23, 2016; http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/06/23/panama-canal-expansion-slump/86279016/.)

“The expansion of the Panama Canal will lead to a significant shift in the size and frequency of ships coming to the U.S. East Coast, and change the face of the warehousing and fulfillment industry,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “To accommodate the larger ships and increase in traffic, PortMiami spent $1.3 billion on enhancements, including deepening the main harbor and improving 12 miles of railway infrastructure connecting the port to the mainland. While many East Coast ports are in various stages of dredging, PortMiami is one of the only ones that is big-ship ready.”

Aultman explains that with roughly half of the U.S. population living in the Eastern Time Zone, PortMiami remains one of the most important ports on the East Coast, and is poised to claim an increased number of cargo moving from Asia, Europe, and South America to the U.S. According to some reports, East Coast ports could claim an additional 10% share of container traffic as a result of the Panama Canal expansion. (Source: “East Coast Ports Could See a Substantial Traffic Boost From Panama Canal Expansion–Report,” wsj.com article, June 18, 2015; http://www.wsj.com/articles/east-coast-ports-could-see-a-substantial-traffic-boost-from-panama-canal-expansion-report-1434603601.)

“Prior to the opening of the Panama Canal expansion, goods sent to the U.S. from Asia on large ships that were destined for the East Coast were received on the West Coast, then transported by rail and truck,” Aultman adds. “The Panama Canal expansion is a faster, more competitive, cost-effective way for brands to get their products to customers.”

APS Fulfillment is located in South Florida, in close proximity to all major transportation hubs. It is minutes from Interstate 95, the Port Everglades, and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. It is also just 30 minutes from Miami International Airport and PortMiami, two of North America’s largest export hubs that are in close proximity to South America and the Panama Canal.
“Because of our strategic location, state-of-the-art facilities, and real-time shipping, merchants that use APS Fulfillment can have their products received, inventoried, and shipped in just two days,” Aultman concludes. “This reduces overhead, supports sales growth, and helps brands get their products to their clients quickly and efficiently.”

Overall, ecommerce sales accounted for 31.8% of total retail sales growth in the first quarter. (Source: “Quarterly Retail E-commerce Sales 1st Quarter 2016,” U.S. Census Bureau web site, May 17, 2016; http://www.census.gov/retail/mrts/www/data/pdf/ec_current.pdf.)

APS Fulfillment, Inc. Reacts on Study Showing North American Warehouses Adopting Smart Technology

Miami, FL, May 11, 2016 – APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, is reacting to a study that reveals North American warehouses need to adopt smart technologies in order to enhance order management and improve customer service and overall productivity.

According to the U.S. and Canadian results of a major study, more and more companies are investing in warehouse technology. Fifty percent of those surveyed have or plan to implement a comprehensive, best-of-breed warehouse management system, while 75% expect to have one in place by 2020. Further, 40% of respondents noted that shorter delivery times are a key measure that needs serious attention. (Source: “Zebra Technologies Study Finds 7 In 10 Decision Makers To Accelerate Warehouse Technology Investment By 2020,” Zebra Technologies web site, April 26, 2016; https://www.zebra.com/us/en/about-zebra/newsroom/press-releases/2016/study-finds-increased-warehouse-tech-investment-by-2020.html.)

“As a result of heightened customer expectations, warehouses need to invest to improve the accuracy of fulfillment, reduce out-of-stock rates, and improve delivery times,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “Warehouses can no longer be just a place where businesses store products; they need to evolve into smart hubs that enhance productivity and customer service. However, not every brand has the time or space to run its own warehouse.”

Doing so will improve their operations, reduce expenses, and enhance brand loyalty and customer retention.

“Because APS Fulfillment, Inc. is located adjacent to all major land, air, and sea transportation hubs and uses state-of-the-art workflow processes, businesses that use APS Fulfillment, Inc. can have their products received, inventoried, and shipped in just two days,” Aultman concludes. “On top of that, APS Fulfillment Inc.’s real-time shipping solutions can connect to a retailer’s online shopping cart and receive orders as they occur, as opposed to being batched. This means orders are received the second they’ve been placed.”
