Miami, FL, August 4, 2015 – APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, weighs in on a recent study showing global e-commerce sales are projected to grow 25% in 2015 and more than double by 2019.
According to a recent report, consumers worldwide will spend $1.67 trillion online in 2015. That represents 7.3% of overall global retail sales and a 25% increase over 2014 online sales figures.

“Here in North America, e-commerce sales are projected to climb 14.3% year-over-year to $375.89 billion; with sales in the U.S. accounting for 92.9% or $349 billion of that total. By 2019 that figure will nearly double to $548 billion,” says Charles Aultman, President of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “One of the biggest trends is both the frequency of purchases and the consumers’ willingness to spend more online; especially on bigger ticket items.”
Businesses looking to take advantage of the burgeoning e-commerce market, keep costs down, and better manage their time and resources need to outsource their warehousing and shipping to a third party fulfillment service. Brands that outsource their fulfillment services, including warehousing, accurate pick-and-pack, specialized packing, shipping, and customer service can instead focus their attention on growing their business.
Aultman explains that merchants can also take advantage of the fulfilment company’s international distribution network and understanding of importing and exporting. When it comes to receiving, storing, managing, and shipping products, two of the most important factors are experience and location.
APS Fulfillment is located in Southern Florida, minutes from the Port Everglades and Ports of Miami. APS Fulfillment is also close to the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and just 40 minutes from the Miami International Airport. When considering a warehousing and fulfillment company it’s important to ensure they also use an advanced real-time shipping solution that can accommodate seasonal demand.
“To keep customers happy, brands need to manage their logistics better than their competitors,” Aultman concludes. “Because of its proximity to all major transportation hubs and state-of-the-art technology, brands that use APS Fulfillment, Inc. can have their products received, inventoried, packed, and shipped in just two days.”
