The logistics services provider SEKO Logistics has created a new integrated eCommerce and logistics division to fast track traditional brick-and-mortar retailers into the global eCommerce market.
The division, called SEKO Omni-Channel Logistics, is aimed at giving customers a single platform for global fulfillment, delivery management, returns solutions, and e-commerce development and design.
“E-fulfillment solutions for customers have been a core aspect of our business for several years, and we have a fast-growing client base of retailers that rely on us to ensure their customer commitment is met,” said SEKO President and Chief Operating Officer Mark White.
He said the new division combines SEKO’s resources and expertise to manage a customer’s total eCommerce supply chain — taking product from ex factory production through warehouse and fulfillment to their end consumer, and back again if required.
“It brings together the complete shipping, logistics and distribution solution, coupled with eCommerce website design expertise and innovative business software for resource, supply chain, warehouse and transport management. This leaves our customers free to concentrate on their brand, product range, purchasing and sales — online or retail — while we integrate with their sales order management systems.”
SEKO Omni-Channel Logistics’ fulfillment offering is built around a network of multi-user logistics sites in the U.S., Asia, Europe and Australia and allows e-tailers and retailers to outsource their eCommerce-focused global fulfillment and international logistics. Retailers can track inventory and product availability in real-time, as well as schedule deliveries and select shipment methods. Direct deliveries to customers are supported by integrated back-end tracking and reporting, while online orders and returns are managed alongside existing retail channels.
SEKO said the platform requires only one integration with sales order management systems.
