FLEXE Space for Modern Logistics

Friday, July 21st, 2017

FLEXE Warehouse Partners

An emerging market is growing quicker than expected. You’re out of warehouse storage. Your customer needs the product now. Enter FLEXE, the marketplace for warehouse space. FLEXE aims to solve the problems of warehouse overflow and fulfillment demands by connecting brands directly to a warehouse provider.

Called the AirBNB of warehousing, FLEXE helps retailers fill an immediate need while driving business to warehousers. They act as a middle-man, managing the customer’s inventory through their own WMS and providing centralized visibility and communication.

Additionally, FLEXE announced earlier this summer that they were expanding into fulfillment services, offering nation-wide next day shipping for their clients. Retailers are thrilled to have Amazon-fast shipments without the associated price tag.

Prime for innovation, FLEXE utilized the on-demand business model to build a service that filled a need – one that’s great for the shipper and great for the warehouse. Like a 3PL, FLEXE’s service reduces overhead and risk while increasing profit. We’re huge fans of the FLEXE team and fellow partners, though the FLEXE model somewhat depersonalizes the process. Our business was built on the commitment to customer partnering, and we’ll continue to value the relationships we build with our customers. That stands true for our FLEXE customers as well.

We’re honored to have been selected as a FLEXE premiere partner and look forward to continuing our commitment to provide top-notch service to all of our logistics customers.

Inspiration in business

We all have a story that will inspire someone else. I have found real motivation in listening to Brian Buffini’s new podcast.  Are you living an inspired life? If you’re like many people, you may feel stuck, overwhelmed, and frustrated—the most common symptoms of living an uninspired life. In this episode, Brian offers timeless tips for living an inspired life. You’ll learn about the symptoms of an uninspired life, the benefits of being inspired and you’ll get the tools you need to incorporate inspiration into every day. You’ll also learn the seven sources of inspiration to tap into to start your journey to a happier life. If you’re feeling stuck in a rut, this is an episode you don’t want to miss.
