Fulfillment is a people-focused industry, and Red Stag is proud to encourage, support, and
celebrate our people, “The Herd.” From port to porch, our experts have you covered.
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.
Our 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

A Promise To You
We put our money where our business is. Red Stag Fulfillment offers a variety of industry-leading
guarantees for receiving, accuracy, processing, and more. On the rare occasion we get something
wrong, we fix it and pay you for the inconvenience.
Accurate Pick, Pack, & Ship
Zero Inventory Shrinkage
Fast Inbound Receiving
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
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
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.
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.
“We can’t run without stellar customer service. We can’t ship our big, heavy D2C packages
properly without it. We don’t have to worry with RSF.”
“RSF has been a part of our eCommerce journey since we sold our first carton of oatmilk
through the Internet and we have grown together.”
