Transportation and logistics provider Geodis is launching its third-party e-logistics service in the USA to provide fulfillment solutions for emerging direct-to-consumer brands.
The new service leverages Geodis’s strategically placed US logistics hubs to support new and emerging brands seeking a 3PL provider that can not only fulfill orders, but scale with their business.
Geodis eLogistics features multi-tenant, automated fulfillment centers designed to enable a faster, more convenient and more affordable shipping experience.
Accelerated by the pandemic, US e-commerce revenue from fashion and accessories is expected to grow from US$102.5bn in 2019 to US$153.6bn in 2024.
“At Geodis, we have a proven track record of providing value-added, end-to-end supply chain solutions for a wide range of clients across our vast global network,” said Eric Douglas, executive vice president of technology and engineering at Geodis in Americas.
“With Geodis eLogistics, we are able to utilize our global expertise with large, enterprise brands and then scale to meet the unique fulfillment needs of startups and growing e-commerce retailers through our flexible and cost-effective solution.”
The company will operate the service from four new strategic Geodis eLogistics locations across the USA. The center in Plainfield, Indianna, is currently fulfilling orders. Two additional locations in California and New Jersey will be fully operational before peak season this year. A state-of-the-art automated facility will be going live in Tennessee in Q1 of 2022. These four nodes are strategically located to provide two-day shipping to 91% of the US mainland population using standard shipping services.
