Red Stag Fulfillment keeps your cost simple 

With 3PL pricing made simple, here are the things you pay for besides carrier shipping costs: 

  • Receiving: $14.25 per pallet received or $6 per non-pallet package.
  • Storage: We use cubic storage, so costs start at $0.75 per cubic foot, based on daily inventory average for items stored 180 days or less. Long-term storage rates are available.
  • Pick and Pack: $1.80 to $2.25 per package, depending on service level, and $0.32 per item after the first item in each order. 
  • Custom support such as light assembly, packaging, additional barcoding, kitting, and more.

Those prices are available on our rate sheet. Other fees, discounts, and savings may apply based on your products, order values, and monthly volume.

Our customers that ship heavy or high-value items — categories where RSF has special expertise — can save up to 45% on standard shipping rates by leveraging our relationships with carriers such as FedEx. We can help you save even more thanks to custom packaging equipment that optimizes box size and product safety. 

 Here’s what you never pay for when you work with Red Stag Fulfillment: 

  • No setup or software fees 
  • No SKU management fees 
  • No costs for system integration 
  • No extra or hidden fees 

And Red Stag will pay you when we make a mistake: 

  • $50 for every mis-pack 
  • $50 for every order we ship late 
  • $50 if we don’t log your products into inventory within two business days of receiving 
  • The wholesale cost of items that are lost or damaged on our shelves

Your 3PL pricing and service questions answered 

Does RSF help me rate shop? 

The RSF system is designed to meet your fulfillment goals, such as controlling costs or minimizing days in transit. All parcels we ship can use the Rate Shopping feature to compare across carriers and select your best option, such as the cheapest on-time or cheapest postal service. Access to Rate Shopping is included in our standard 3PL pricing.

Will RSF use my custom boxes? 

We provide access to standard packaging and can use custom materials that you provide. We’ll collaborate on getting the right boxes and filler for your orders. Many of our customers also ship some products in their existing packaging. Ask, and let’s find the best solution for you. 

Can I use RSF to fill Amazon orders? 

Red Stag works with eCommerce businesses across all fulfillment channels. If you fill your own Amazon orders (such as Fulfilled by Merchant or Seller Fulfilled Prime), RSF will help you meet and exceed Amazon’s good-standing requirements. Support is included in our standard 3PL pricing.

What about replenishment for Amazon and other vendors? 

You can also use RSF to send inventory to Amazon for FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon). We prep the inventory, and you use both RSF and your Amazon account to finalize the shipment. If you use fulfillment services from multiple RSF locations or partners, we’re happy to help you move goods as you need them. Within our system, just create the parcel or LTL/FTL order, and we’ll send it. 

Use your inventory exactly how you prefer. 

Can RSF handle eCommerce returns? 

RSF offers returns management for any eCommerce seller. Together, we’ll set the best way to process your returns and requirements for goods returning to your available inventory. Value-added services may come with additional costs, but RSF will establish those with you beforehand. 

Can I ship internationally with RSF? 

We’re happy to help our partners ship to their customers wherever they live. International shipments tend to require more information, such as Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) codes. Quotes for these shipments are available upon request and will come with different 3PL pricing due to shipping cost changes.

What if I have special instructions for an order? 

Every Red Stag partner gets access to our in-house order management and fulfillment software. You can use it to create special Packaging Instructions for specific products or orders. For any instructions outside of the norm, we recommend you contact your rep to ensure we fill orders to your satisfaction. 

Can I use RSF for LTL and FTL orders? 

Absolutely. If you have inventory at RSF that you would like to send in an LTL or FTL shipment, we support it. You’ll create the order within the RSF Operations Portal and choose one of the freight options available. The RSF team prepares the order and shares its weight and dimensions to help secure quotes from different carriers. You make the final selection, and we’ll ensure it’s ready for pickup. 

How do I get started? 

It’s as easy as 1-2-3. 

  1. Send your inventory to our warehouses 
  2. Integrate your software to send us your orders 
  3. Give us 30 days to impress you, risk-free

I never envisioned that we would have this much growth – and they have grown with us seamlessly. As a partner, I take them for granted now. When you're a company as small as is, that's vital. That reliability – it's one less thing to worry about.

My company cannot run without stellar customer service. We can't ship our big, heavy D2C packages properly without it, and we don't have to worry about anything with RSF. That's what it boils down to.
