This is a short story about how to manage your e-commerce logistics successfully in a globalized world and refers to how Prime Penguin today is used by successful e-shops.
Let’s say we where a sneaker brand
What would it be like if we were a desirable and affordable urban sneaker brand with growing demand worldwide, instead of a digital e-commerce logistics solution? And even more interesting and relevant: How would we solve our logistics?
Ok, let’s hypothetically say that we where this cool sneaker brand, based in Stockholm with clients spread all over the world with a focus on London, Los Angeles, Berlin, Stockholm, Oslo, and Melbourne.
So far so good. We have a success and a demand for some of the major urban fashion cities worldwide – that’s great!
The problem though is the high cost of sending all orders directly from our office warehouse in Stockholm. It worked in the beginning when the global deliveries just where a few, but the demand has recently been increasing a lot and the demand is now more international.
Prime Penguin as the solution
This is where Prime Penguin comes into the picture. Not as a potential sneaker brand this time, but of course as the logistics solution it is.
We easily find suitable logistics partners near London, Los Angeles, Berlin, Stockholm, Oslo, and Melbourne by procuring our total logistics need online at:
In a short while, we will receive price offers from suitable and pre-connected 3PL-partners and we are ready to choose what providers to get started and sign with.
We aim high and decide to get started with 3PL-providers in California, London, Sydney, Oslo and Frankfurt simultaneously and start to send and redirect selected sneakers from our Chinese located production straight to the selected 3PL-warehouses at the actual markets.
Meanwhile, we experience the Prime Penguin platform in demo mode and connect the e-shop, which is based on Magento and Shopify. The integration only takes a few minutes and we shortly get a full overview of all order data.
A few days later the contracts from our new 3PL partners appear in the platform and we also start to see incoming goods arriving at the warehouses, managed into shelves, pallets, etc from the cloud-based interface and a selected key person from each 3PL helps us out with all preparations.
Some final adjustments are being made (order mapping, routing, etc.) and we are soon ready to get started to let our new partners handle client orders at the actual markets.
