FLEXE’s Warehousing, Fulfillment, & Delivery Option Faster than Amazon Prime

Warehouse marketplace Flexe Inc. says it is now offering online retailers access to nationwide next-day delivery, adding to a push by companies to build fulfillment services that compete with Amazon.com Inc.

FLEXE, the first and largest marketplace for on-demand warehousing and fulfillment services, has announced FLEXE Next-Day Delivery, a new fulfillment solution that enables e-commerce brands to reach 98 percent of the US population via next-day ground shipping.

For the first time, businesses can now deliver their goods faster than Amazon Prime, without making an Amazon-sized investment.

"For the first time in history, e-commerce brands have an alternative to Amazon," said FLEXE co-founder and CEO Karl Siebrecht.

"Our customers are under tremendous pressure to meet consumer demand for fast, cheap shipping. FLEXE gives them the same network scale as Amazon, allows them to ship products in their own branded box, and gets them up and running in 30 days."

FLEXE Next-Day Delivery gives companies control of the end-to-end fulfillment process, from identifying ideal fulfillment center locations, to delivering product via integrations with all major carriers.

FLEXE integrates with all major shopping carts, provides inventory control, and enables dynamic order management to ensure the most efficient path from order to delivery.

FLEXE enables e-commerce brands to access the largest network of fulfillment centers in the country, with more than 500 warehouses across all major North American markets that are managed by professional operators like Iron Mountain.

"Having products on the ground, close to customers – especially in top metropolitan markets – is required if you want to compete in e-commerce," said Dale Lawing, senior vice president and general manager at Iron Mountain, a FLEXE warehouse partner.

"Our partnership enables FLEXE clients to leverage our secure facilities and skilled workforce, and the FLEXE software platform makes it easy and efficient for all clients and warehouse operators to work together."

Shorten Shipping Times and Reduce Costs by Adding Fulfillment Locations
FLEXE Next-Day Delivery enables e-commerce brands to access the largest network of fulfillment centers in the country and, in turn, reach 98 percent of the U.S. population via next-day ground shipping.
