Keep reading to discover what makes Warehouse 72 a cut above other storage spaces.

Why New Jersey for eCommerce logistics?

Nestled near the heart of the Northeast Corridor, New Jersey offers unmatched access to some of the nation’s largest consumer markets. Nearby cities like New York and Philadelphia, for instance, are easily accessible.

This golden location means goods travel from point A to point B in no time, which cuts delivery times and saves on shipping costs. That proximity is ideal for any eCommerce business looking to keep customers happy with speedy service.

Access to major ports

The Port of New York and New Jersey is the heavyweight champion of the East Coast, playing a crucial role in international trade. This and other access points in the region facilitate seamless import and export operations.

For Warehouse 72, being this close to key maritime infrastructure translates to smoother operations, quicker handling of goods, and more cost-effective solutions from start to finish.

Operational efficiencies

Besides the close proximity to ports and cities, Warehouse 72’s advantageous positioning enables it to leverage those locations for operational excellence. The immediate benefit is a significant reduction in lead times. Faster turnaround from port to warehouse to customer means merchants can keep inventory moving and reduce holding costs.

The logistical networks in and around New Jersey are some of the most developed in the country, offering a variety of options for freight that include road, rail, and air. Warehouse 72 taps into this infrastructure to provide flexible and efficient fulfillment solutions tailored to each merchant’s needs.

Cost savings

Shortening the distance goods travel from port to warehouse and from warehouse to customer significantly lowers overall logistical costs. Those savings can then be passed on to merchants through competitive pricing, making it easier to compete in a crowded marketplace.

  • Tailored B2B and B2C fulfillment strategies: Recognizing the unique demands of B2B versus B2C fulfillment, Warehouse 72 provides customized strategies for each type so, whether you’re shipping pallets to a retailer or parcels directly to consumers, they meet your needs precisely.

A case study in efficiency: Prepping 5,000 hazmat items for FBA

Imagine facing the daunting task of prepping 5,000 high-value, hazmat-classified fragrances for Amazon FBA. That’s exactly what landed on Warehouse 72’s plate, courtesy of a MyFBAPrep customer. But, rather than crumbling under the pressure, the team at Warehouse 72 rolled up their sleeves and proved themselves worthy of their stellar reputation.

This wasn’t a simple request to move goods from point A to point B; it involved meticulous handling, precise packing, and navigating a maze of safety regulations. Yet, the operational team at Warehouse 72 demonstrated the facility’s expertise in handling these specialized tasks:

  • Preparation: Each fragrance unit was first bubble wrapped for protection, then inserted into poly bags for an extra shield to ensure they were snug and secure.
  • Labeling and repacking: Once secured, each unit received a clear and detailed label that met Amazon’s stringent FBA requirements. This step was critical to ensure smooth sailing once the products hit Amazon’s warehouse shelves. Finally, the team neatly packed the items into master cartons, primed for shipping.
  • FBA prep area: Warehouse 72 boasts a dedicated FBA prep area equipped with tools and specially trained staff to handle intricate requests. Here, efficiency and knowledge come together to streamline the prep process and meet Amazon’s high standards.

Execution and delivery

Warehouse 72 didn’t stop once the products were prepped and packed though. They then compiled a detailed order manifest that outlined quantities, box counts, and weights. Transparency was key to give the customer a crystal-clear view of their inventory’s journey.

The final push was to ship the fragrance to Amazon. This step was a breeze thanks to Warehouse 72’s strategic location near major transport hubs, which contributed to an impressive turnaround time: It took a single day for the team to prep, package, and dispatch 5,000 units of high-value, hazmat goods.

Not only was this a win for Warehouse 72 but it also showcased the MyFBAPrep network’s ability to tackle tough challenges and deliver exceptional results that keep merchants coming back for more.
