Aston, March 8, 2021. National Fulfillment Services expands its fulfillment network with a third U.S. location to reach over 98% of consumers with two-day shipping. The new 100,701 square-foot Class A warehouse is located at 5208 Stilwell Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri and aims to provide Prime-like delivery options to its e-commerce customers through strategically located distribution points.
“National Fulfillment Services had very specific criteria for its Midwest expansion, with a key factor being the transit times to population-dense areas like Texas and proximity to major distribution hubs,” said Kathy McDevitt, Director of Operations for National Fulfillment Services. “Kansas City is an ideal location; it’s within 15 minutes of KCI Airport, has a vibrant labor market for employees and increases our footprint to support our clients’ marketplace growth requirements.”
“The majority of our clients utilize Amazon as a sales channel. With rising shipping costs and consumer expectations of delivery within a few days, we saw the need to offer Seller Fulfilled Prime and competitive transit times to our customers,” said Taylor Callahan, Business Development Manager for National Fulfillment Services. “This expansion is part of a multi-year strategy to reduce shipping times and costs by distributing orders closer to the end user.”
The new facility begins operations on April 15, 2021. Ecommerce brands that are interested in partnering with National Fulfillment Services for two-day shipping can find more information here: https://www.nfsrv.com/contact
