Stord Expands Port-To-Porch Logistics Capabilities For Brands Through A Single Partner

Logistics Tech Outlook | Friday, September 02, 2022

Stord now supports e-commerce returns handling, which ensures that product is either returned to sellable inventory or disposed of appropriately over the lifecycle of an order.

FREMONT, CA: "When today's brands try to make impactful changes to their supply chains, they're severely limited due to too many partners and siloed systems. By bringing more parts of the supply chain under the Stord domain, brands can manage the entire process, from port to porch, all through a single partner." says Sean Henry, CEO, and co-founder of Stord.

Drayage, E-commerce returns, custom packaging, and temperature-controlled fulfillment are recent additions to Stord's supply chain portfolio. The company says these services enable it to support DTC, B2B, and omnichannel businesses with all their port-to-porch supply chain requirements. Brands can now use a single partner to connect, orchestrate, and optimize their entire supply chains, thanks to Stord's best-in-class logistics and integrated technology.

As diverse logistical partners and disconnected technology continue to provide difficulties for brands, growth is slowed, customer experience is hampered, and significant operational burdens and inefficiencies exist. Brands can unleash the connectivity, visibility, and optimization needed to significantly impact their business by centralizing the whole supply chain experience.

Stord offers DTC, B2B, and omnichannel brands the ability to build the right solution by accessing any or all of the following services-all managed through Stord's new vendor- and sales channel-independent Stord One Commerce software.

• A drayage service

• Freight transport, full truckload (FTL), and less-than-truckload (LTL)

• B2B warehouse and fulfillment

• B2C warehouses and fulfillment

• Temperature-controlled storage, fulfillment, and TL reefers

• A custom package

• Discounted shipping for parcels

• Retail compliance prep

• Value-added services

To enhance brand customers' experiences, promote sustainability, and lower overall landing costs, Stord expanded its fulfillment operations to include customized packaging, printed goods, and package engineering and development skills.
