Mission: Amware Logistics will be the best 3PL and fulfillment provider, wherever we operate.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
Amware Logistics Services, LLC, a leading national provider of third-party warehouse and transportation logistics services, has acquired the contracts, personnel and equipment of ParcelPort, LLC. The business will be integrated into Amware Logistics Services, LLC as Amware Fulfillment Services.
ParcelPort performs high-volume product and literature fulfillment from warehouses in North Haven, CT; Easton, PA; Atlanta, GA, and Phoenix, AZ. In 2011, the company expanded to four facilities from two and doubled its revenues. ParcelPort continues to add new customers in high-growth e-Commerce and direct marketing segments, including pharmaceutical, nutriceutical, fashion accessory, and “green” home products. The company provides order fulfillment services, front-end e-Commerce gateways, order entry/management applications, and leveraged transportation services.
According to Mark Wilhelm, CEO of Amware, the capabilities of fulfillment companies have not kept pace with the rapid growth of U.S. e-commerce sales, which increased 16% in 2011 to $194 billion (U.S. Commerce Dept.). “The fulfillment industry is dominated by smaller, single-city operations whose technology is not open and scalable. The new Amware Fulfillment Services combines Amware’s sophisticated systems and process disciplines for warehouse operations with ParcelPort’s order management systems and nationwide fulfillment network to give direct marketers a world-class fulfillment operation without large capital investments for systems and automation.”
Vincent Gulisano, the current CEO of ParcelPort will join Amware, as its President. According to Gulisano, “Today’s brands rely on highly sophisticated front-end technology to attract online buyers and complete sales. Amware Fulfillment Services will now give them an advanced back-end capability to match, with professionally managed warehouse operations and systems support, and real-time web visibility to inventory and order status.”
