Webgistix Expands Fulfillment Network to Service Growing Demand by eCommerce Retailers Following Rakuten Acquisition

Demand Soars for Webgistix’s eCommerce Fulfillment Services; New Facility in Pennsylvania and Expanded Operation in Las Vegas Enhance 1-Day and 2-Day Delivery Reach

Webgistix Corporation, a Rakuten company and a global leader in eCommerce order fulfillment, announced it has expanded its eCommerce order fulfillment network with a new fulfillment center near Scranton, Pennsylvania, approximately 80 miles from New York City, and an expanded presence in Las Vegas that doubles the size of an existing Webgistix fulfillment center.

The company’s latest round of expansion comes as eCommerce merchants selling on all major eCommerce platforms increasingly turn to Webgistix’s fast, cost-effective order fulfillment solutions to reach consumers in the Northeast, upper Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and West Coast regions. The Webgistix fulfillment network enables merchants to reach 98 percent of U.S. eCommerce shoppers in 1 to 2 days via ground shipping.

“Demand for our fulfillment services is growing rapidly as more retailers recognize the value we offer through our open, multi-channel fulfillment platform,” said Joseph DiSorbo, founder and president of Webgistix. “In fact, we’re seeing demand take off for our entire SmartSuite of services, including SmartFreight, which expedites the shipment of goods from overseas and domestically to our nationwide network of fulfillment centers.”

A major driver of new demand for Webgistix’s services comes from merchants selling on Rakuten.com Shopping, formerly known as Buy.com. Rakuten acquired Webgistix in June 2013 to expand Rakuten’s global logistics network that spans 25 countries.

Webgistix SmartFill Integrated with Rakuten.com Shopping in Time for Holiday Shipping

Nearly 40,000 merchants sell on the Rakuten.com Shopping platform, which has been integrated tightly with the Webgistix SmartFill eCommerce fulfillment platform for seamless order processing. By empowering eCommerce retailers with the technology and services to deliver above and beyond customer expectations, Webgistix is becoming the de facto standard for order fulfillment that supports multiple channels.

Webgistix is staffing up in Pennsylvania and Las Vegas to manage the increased business, adding management positions and warehouse personnel, and gearing up from the company’s busiest holiday season ever.

Retailers interested in the Webgistix SmartSuite of eCommerce services as well as Webgistix’s special holiday order-fulfillment promotion can contact Webgistix at marketing@webgistix.com to learn more.
