FORT Platform

FORT Platform

FORT is a powerful fulfillment warehouse and order management system, setting the standards for efficient fulfillment. The FORT System’s suite of features enables even the smallest company to harness powerful tools and functionality typically available only to much larger companies.

The FORT System offers small and medium-sized businesses affordable and powerful e-business solutions. FORT provides an enterprise class web-based platform for producers, wholesalers, retailers, etailers, and any company that ships products directly to its customers, enabling package tracking from the point of label generation through to final delivery. FORT is particularly well suited to multi-brand companies, drop-shippers, and companies that offer alcoholic and other regulated products. FORT simplifies the process of shipping, managing, and routing orders, and integrates easy-to-use, customizable tools.

While our core functional expertise is fulfillment management, we offer much more than tools to help manage shipping. Our platform can also help generate market exposure opportunities for suppliers, and greater sales volume opportunities for all levels of distribution. At FORT, everything we do is informed by our simple mission: Simplify the connection between suppliers and buyers.

Core Functionality: What’s behind the FORT name?

Fulfillment. Management of multiple warehouse locations, zone skipping, courier label generation, waving, 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 more.

Ordering. Upload and process large batch orders or enter them from the admin (a useful feature for phone orders). On the front end, your website customers can easily enter multiple recipient orders, saving them valuable time compared to other systems.

Routing. The FORT platform can route orders based on a number of different criteria, all based on your own business priorities. Proximity to recipient, product cost, product expiration windows, freight efficiencies/costs, delivery windows, etc., can all be utilized to route orders to the most appropriate and efficient fulfillment location.

Tracking. Tracking is a general term used to represent the package life cycle, from label generation through to final delivery or return. Such functionality provides a real-time window into all packages, enabling both administrators and customers to see where any given package is at any given moment. This extends even to our 3-tier and zone-skipped packages, providing unparalleled visibility in the industry.
