MultiChannel Merchant Chooses Sprocket as Top 3PL for 2020

We are pleased to announce that Sprocket Express has been named a Multichannel Merchant Top 3PL for 2020, joining dozens of other leading third-party logistics (3PL) providers selected by Multichannel Merchant in its fifth annual listing. Sprocket has been chosen three years in a row for this distinction and we are proud to continue to shine as a fulfillment operation.

3PLs have grown in importance with the explosion in ecommerce, provided much-needed services for companies that lack the in-house resources to fulfill and ship orders on their own. This is why Multichannel Merchant created this unique resource to help them vet ecommerce-qualified, experienced 3PLs. The online resource is a searchable directory for merchants looking for a qualified provider. “Because so many ecommerce and DTC merchants today are experiencing rapid growth, they quickly outgrow their own internal fulfillment capabilities and seeking outside help,” said Mike O’Brien, Senior Content Manager of Multichannel Merchant. “Each company has been selected based on industry experience, services offered and ability to handle high order flow.”

The company profiles in the MCM Top 3PL listing include vital information to help merchants in their selection process, including key capabilities, average annual client order volume, top merchandise categories handled, facility locations and more. This unique database was created to vet experienced ecommerce service providers as a value-added service for the MCM audience. The online resource is a searchable directory for merchants looking for a qualified 3PL provider.

Holiday spending alone can make up a third of a company's annual revenue. In 2019, spending was up by another 5% but more than half of the sales were completed online. For any business competing with the large marketplaces, fulfillment capabilities often mean the difference between success and failure. Today’s sellers must be prompt, accurate, and ready for large volume. Sprocket Express has found its niche as a local small business itself, still offering that personal touch while keeping pace with today’s technology.

"When I started Sprocket Express, one of my goals was to create local jobs in New England, said Dan Cence, CEO of Sprocket Express and former Information Technology and Supply Chain executive with Polaroid Corporation., “To be recognized as a leading fulfillment house reinforces our success and company mission to provide reliable service to the entrepreneur and mid-sized business.”

Sprocket Express is adept at managing multiple order streams from any platform or cart system. With a 99.9%+ accuracy rate and friendly personal service, we support many satisfied clients over the long term. But don’t take our word for it…

“After interviewing a half a dozen fulfillment centers across the country, I decided to go with Sprocket Express. I just got the best vibe from them and I'm typically good at reading people… Fast forward 4 years later I now have 3 Shopify stores with them grossing several million dollars a year. Sprocket Express couldn't be more instrumental in growing my business! They are true partners and really care about their clients.” -Comic Book Treasures

We are proud of our track record. See what else our existing clients have to say.
