Miami, FL, October 17, 2014 – APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, is pleased to announce it is now handling warehousing and fulfillment services for an international personal care company located in Latin America.
For competitive reasons, the personal care brand has asked to remain confidential. A leader in its field, the company said it chose to move its fulfillment operations to APS Fulfillment, Inc. for a number of key reasons.
Conveniently located in Southern Florida, APS Fulfillment, Inc. is just minutes from Interstate 95 and 20 minutes from the Port Everglades and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. APS Fulfillment, Inc. is also just 40 minutes from the Miami International Airport and Port of Miami. Fort Lauderdale and Miami are two of North America’s largest export hubs and are in close proximity to South America, the Panama Canal, and Europe.
“Because of its close proximity to all major transportation hubs, APS Fulfillment can receive, inventory, and ship a brand’s products in just two days,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “That means that if we receive this personal care company’s products on Monday, they can be inventoried and accurately picked, packed, and shipped to eager customers by Wednesday.”
Aultman explains that a quick turnaround is essential for brands to stay competitive. With the holiday season fast approaching, this personal care company needed to be able to rely on a dynamic company like APS Fulfillment, Inc. to handle time-sensitive seasonal order spikes.
In addition to being centrally located in South Florida, APS Fulfillment, Inc. also uses state-of-the-art, real-time shipping solutions. A brand can connect its online shopping cart directly with APS Fulfillment, Inc., which receives orders as they occur, in real time. Other fulfillment companies waste valuable time by batching orders, only filling them sporadically.
“Widespread fulfillment and shipping delays over the holiday season last year left many online shoppers disappointed and frustrated. Initially, many placed blame with the shipping companies, but the fact of the matter is that retailers were responsible for 56% of the delays. Most of the shortcomings were attributed to inventory issues, late shipping, and/or failure to upgrade shipping,” Aultman concludes. “At APS Fulfillment, we are excited to be helping this personal care company exceed its fulfillment needs all year round.” (Source: “Are Carriers Being Unfairly Blamed for Holidays Shipping Delays?” Kurt Salmon web site, January 13, 2014; www.kurtsalmon.com/CA/about-news-item/Are-Carriers-Being-Unfairly-Blamed-for-Holidays-Shipping-Delays-?id=422&language=en-us#.UtVUkfRDvpw.)
