As the pace of e-commerce continues to quicken, the smartest brands are thinking now about how to prepare their supply chain and operations for sustained growth.

While it’s true that more than 50% of organizations have not yet actively started to build a roadmap for supply chain digital transformation – critical in a globally competitive market – there are steps forward-thinking brands can take now to begin to optimize their fulfillment operations for the future.

Even mature brands will still need capacity beyond their existing infrastructure due to peak inventory building, unforeseen supply chain disruptions, or expansion to retail channels.

Working with Flowspace and its distributed network of warehouses, brands are able to access overflow storage capacity at scale where and when it’s needed, and strategically diversify their supply chains to reduce reliance on individual partners.

Merchants need to prepare themselves now, not only for Q4, but for the future of retail which will be increasingly dominated by e-commerce. Here’s how Flowspace can help.

Overflow Storage Solutions at Scale

Flowspace’s distributed and diverse network means that storage is available wherever and whenever it’s needed. With no space minimums and flexible contracts, brands can avoid overpaying for unneeded space, contributing to an efficient, scalable supply chain.

One Platform, One Partner

Flowspace is the single partner that manages all relationships with warehouse operators, streamlining communication and reducing complications. The Flowspace platform offers a unified dashboard with a transparent view of warehousing and fulfillment operations. 

Network Optimization

Brands that adopt an omnichannel e-commerce strategy need multiple, distributed fulfillment locations in order to enable fast, affordable delivery. The Flowspace Network Optimization algorithm identifies the optimal fulfillment centers across the country so brands can provide the fastest, most cost-efficient shipping to customers.
