Leading provider of outsourced fulfillment solutions are opening new warehouse as fast as possible in 2017 in preparation for the holiday season, according to Tim Hoj, CEO of Warehouse Mobile Solutions, makers of WarehouseOS.
“Final holiday inventory preparedness for both eCommerce and 3PLs are taking place. These 3PLs (third party logistics) firms consider site selection as well as strategic carrier partnerships, so they can reach 100 percent of the U.S. population in no more than two to three days at extremely competitive rates, often with far less accessorial charges than other U.S.-origin zip code,” shared Hoj.
From a technology perspective, whether the warehouse is at the manufacturers facility or a distribution center to ensure rapid on-time delivery, the increasing popularity in value-added services from 3PLs seems to be growing because of synergy between customers and 3PLs. Shopify insists the holiday season is the most important (and profitable) time of year for online businesses. The company provides some actionable advice to help small e-commerce firms take advantage of holiday traffic to generate more sales.
The holiday season is almost always the most profitable time of year for online businesses. Not only does the last quarter of the year see increases to the number of orders but the average order sizes also tend to be much bigger as well. In fact, some retailers make up to 40% of their yearly revenue in the last quarter alone.

WarehouseOS, a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.
A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the tablet solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
