SuperbCrew editors interviewed Dan Cence, founder and CEO of Sprocket Express, a leading third-party logistics provider in the Boston area to learn more about their unique fulfillment service. Sprocket offers something most fulfillment companies do not.
The popular SuperbCrew interview series features top executives of innovative companies in the tech and business world. They asked Sprocket Express, recently selected as a Top 3PL for 2018, what sets them apart from other fulfillment companies. “We’re a David to the Goliaths in the industry,” says Dan Cence.
With only one level of management in the company, Sprocket is agile and personable. “As a client, we’ll know you, and you’ll know us on a first name basis,” said Dan. “Our flattened org. structure enables us to turn on a dime.”
Dan Cence created his company to support the many entrepreneurs emerging from over 32 Universities in the Boston area. These entrepreneurs, armed with great product ideas and solid business plans, had only rudimentary knowledge of eCommerce infrastructure.
As Sprocket continues to evolve, they now assist offshore eCommerce companies who are expanding into the US market. Today, Sprocket Express hosts approximately 110 clients. This New England company has gone global, with clients from Europe, Eastern Europe, Canada, Russia, China, Hong Kong, Japan and Argentina.
U.S. job growth continues and the unemployment rate dropped to near a 17-1/2-year low of 3.9 percent in 2018. To compete in the global ecommerce marketplace, more companies are considering an outsourced fulfillment solution when they outgrow their staffed capabilities. Logistics providers like Sprocket Express address this growing need and help local businesses stand out.
Here is the full interview with Dan Cence, CEO of Sprocket Express:
