About Us

From Fulfillment to Marketplaces

Initially conceived by the founders in 1999 as an efficient delivery network for wine gifts, the FORT System has evolved organically, and offers solutions for the accessibility and logistical problems that can come between suppliers and buyers.  We first encountered many of these issues in the wine industry, though the solutions we've developed are not limited to alcoholic beverages, and can help make shipping easier to manage for any company.

Within the world of alcoholic beverages, the platform touches all key segments of the industry, including warehouses, couriers, wineries, wholesalers, retailers, marketers, and consumers. The FORT platform also helps streamline shipping and order management functions for manufacturers, loyalty companies, and other retailers and dropshippers. FORT System clients include small start-ups and family-owned businesses, mid-size companies as well as major corporations.


FORT's powerful platform makes fulfillment a snap, and provides a comprehensive system for fulfillment companies. The system allows management of multiple warehouse locations, zone skipping, courier label generation, real-time package life cycle management, seamless order uploading and filtering, customer-based preferences, access to 3-tier supply chain channels, client invoicing, robust reporting and analysis tools, and a fully integrated compliance system. No need to use separate systems for these applications.

Unlike FORT's comprehensive 3pl platform, FORT Ship is designed for self-shippers.  It is a streamlined, lighter weight application, but still relies on the same powerful FORT engine.  FORT Ship avoids the heavier functionality like inventory management, and focuses on the critical features needed to get packages labeled and out the door.  It is integrated with the same key industry platforms as our WMS platform, and users can often be up and running in a single day.
