Dotcom Distribution, a premier provider of fulfillment and logistics solutions, announces today it will provide fulfillment support to fashion-forward office products retailer Poppin as the e-retailer begins offering its products at wholesale partners’ brick-and-mortar locations.
“We initially selected Dotcom Distribution to handle logistics and fulfillment for our online channel because of the company’s reputable experience with both growing eCommerce companies and multichannel retailers,” said Randy Nicolau, CEO of Poppin. “Based on our experience with Dotcom to date, we felt confident we could move forward when we were presented with the opportunity to expand our business into one of the leading office product chains.”
Dotcom Distribution’s technology and multichannel expertise give Poppin the flexibility to allocate inventory to a wide range of consumer, business and wholesale customers. Unlike many retailers that are forced to split fulfillment between distribution centers when expanding across channels, Poppin will keep costs to a minimum by fulfilling all orders from a single inventory location housed by Dotcom.
“As an emerging brand, we wanted to ensure that our fulfillment provider had not only the logistics skills and tools we needed to launch our initial online business, but also expertise in other areas – such as multichannel fulfillment – that we could take advantage of down the road,” said Nicolau.
According to Maria Haggerty, president of Dotcom Distribution, shipping several thousand online orders a day to consumers and shipping orders from the warehouse to multiple retail locations requires very different systems, software and management knowledge. Precise directions and routing instructions must be followed to ship to big box retailers without incurring large fines for mislabeled or incorrectly organized shipments. Along with understanding the specific processes involved with shipping products to wholesalers, Dotcom’s warehouse is optimized to sort, package and ship Poppin’s new partner’s brick-and-mortar orders.
“We want to provide solutions for our clients and give them the flexibility to take advantage of new business opportunities,” Haggerty said. “We are excited to have the unique ability to provide Poppin with the facilities and logistics expertise to bring their products to consumers, businesses and wholesale partners.”
