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.
Fulfillment & Shipping
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.
FORT's order management system has been tested in many different industries, and provides a seamless connection between buyers and sellers in various contexts and regulatory environments. FORT is a powerful fulfillment warehouse and order management system, setting the standards for efficient fulfillment. The FORT System’s robust suite of features enables even the smallest company to harness powerful tools and functionality typically available only to much larger companies.
FORT's business-to-business marketplace platform was built upon the solid foundation provided by our Fulfillment Management System. FORT Exchange offers suppliers of all sizes exposure to major buyers from all over the country.
