The Herd

Red Stag Fulfillment: Born from ECommerce to Serve ECommerce

The 2012 holiday season was rough for the eCommerce entrepreneurs who conceived and founded Red Stag Fulfillment.

Out founders started, as many eCommerce business owners do, by shipping orders themselves and storing merchandise in a garage. With success came growth, and they outsourced their fulfillment to a third-party logistics provider.

Their 2012 holiday sales were excellent, setting another growth milestone for their budding enterprise. But that season turned into a disaster when the 3PL couldn’t ship their orders on time. So customers didn’t get orders in time for holiday gifts, and the forward trajectory of their eCommerce business slowed to a crawl.

When Red Stag’s founders arrived at the fulfillment warehouse to pick and pack orders and try to salvage their holiday sales, they found a space strewn with trash and demoralized employees who didn’t take pride in their work. The founders realized that excellent fulfillment was crucial to their success and knew there must be a better way. So, the next year, they started a 3PL.

Red Stag Fulfillment is the better way to do fulfillment.

Our company centers on the success of our clients because our business thrives if your business thrives. Our founders infused Red Stag with an entrepreneurial spirit that inspires our drive for excellence. We treat our staff with respect and dignity, because their drive and ingenuity are critical to meeting our high standards of service.

In less than a decade, Red Stag Fulfillment has grown from an aspiration to fill a need in the fulfillment industry to one of that industry’s leading 3PLs, repeatedly acknowledged as a top fulfillment company for heavy, bulky, and high-value products.

Red Stag Fulfillment was created by eCommerce entrepreneurs to help eCommerce companies achieve greatness.

100% Order Accuracy

It should go without saying that you and your customers expect to receive what they ordered. Unfortunately, the average fulfillment company can have an order mis-pick rate of 4%, where one out of every 25 orders is wrong. Red Stag Fulfillment, on the other hand, has an error rate of less than 0.02%, or just 1 out of more than 5,000 orders. Even with that performance level, we take it one step further.

Red Stag Fulfillment stands alone in the industry when we say: If an order is shipped with the wrong item or wrong number of items, not only will we fix the mistake, but you don’t pay for that shipment AND we’ll pay you $50 for the inconvenience.

100% Inventory Accuracy

A key component in making sure your customers get what they want, when they want it, is to make sure the product is ready to pick when it’s ordered. Unfortunately, the industry average for inventory accuracy is only 98%. Said another way, if you have $1 million worth of inventory, the average fulfillment company will lose $20,000 worth of your product. You shouldn’t have to lose money because of their mistakes.

Red Stag Fulfillment stands alone in the industry when we say: If any of your inventory is damaged or missing after we receive it into our facility, we will pay you the wholesale cost of that item.

No More Inventory Lag

In order to have them available to sell, you need to receive them into the system quickly and accurately when they arrive at our fulfillment center. Some fulfillment companies have a “we’ll receive it when we get to it” mentality when it comes to your products. That’s not us; we’ll get your inventory accurately unloaded right away.

Red Stag Fulfillment stands alone in the industry when we say: When your shipment is unloaded in our facility, we’ll receive it accurately within 2 days or we’ll pay you $50 for the inconvenience.

Same-Day Fulfillment

The marketplace is growing more competitive by the day. As competition grows, so do your customers’ expectations. You can’t afford to have a certain percentage of your orders not ship on time. You and your customers expect more.

Red Stag Fulfillment stands alone in the industry when we say: 100% of your orders will be shipped according to your chosen service level (Next Business Day, 3:00 pm or 5:00 pm cutoff), or else you don’t pay for that shipment AND we’ll pay you $50 for the inconvenience.
