FedEx joins a space filled with other logistics providers and Amazon.com Inc.’s Fulfillment by Amazon service, in which merchants selling on Amazon’s marketplace pay Amazon to store and ship their goods.
Dagne Dover is one of what FedEx Fulfillment hopes will be many merchants—from startups to midsize retailers selling across multiple sites and online marketplaces—using its new service, Dan Coll, FedEx Supply Chain’s senior manager of e-commerce fulfillment, tells Internet Retailer. In 2015, FedEx bought logistics firm Genco as a part of a push into e-commerce and later renamed the unit FedEx Supply Chain. That unit has 130 warehouses and distribution centers in North America, totaling 35 million square feet, and FedEx says it processes 358 million returns annually and 580,000 direct-to-consumer shipments daily.
