FULFILLMENT
New U.S. East Coast Warehouse

October 19, 2011

Shipwire is pleased to announce the availability of a new facility in Philadelphia. After months of testing and a very thorough beta period with select merchants, this new East Coast warehouse is available.

Designed to service the East Coast of the United States, the Philadelphia facility is designed for wholesale shipping, high-volume pick-pack, and direct-to-consumer sales.

All the features that every Shipwire account enjoys are available in our newest facility. For example: Same Day Shipping, Service Level Guarantees and our 100% order accuracy guarantee.

Located in Lancaster which is close to Philadelphia, PA, this warehouse is strategically located with 1 day ground transit to New York City and approximately 45% of the U.S. Population. This will be of huge benefit to Shipwire customers looking to cut shipping costs to customers in the North East of the U.S.A. All without having an actual warehouse located in the state of New York.

The new Philadelphia facility is also located beside major shipping hubs for UPS and Fedex. It is within same-day range of the major USPS shipping hub located at JFK Airport in New York City. The end result: packages will get to buyers faster and for less money.
