Why choose Amazons MCF

Ecommerce is trending

The U.S. is witnessing large growth in ecommerce. From May 2019 to May 2020, small- and medium-sized businesses in the U.S. sold more than 3.4 billion products in Amazon stores, up from 2.7 billion year-over-year.  Customers are buying more products online, but they also want fast shipping. In a recent survey, 73% of customers said that shipping has a large impact on their purchase decision.

Business owners are now tasked with not only scaling to meet the increased demand, but also navigating fulfillment of those orders in a timely manner. Balancing these goals can lead to challenges like missed orders, increased customer contacts, and less time devoted to product development. Using a reliable fulfillment provider reduces business owners’ workloads, saving them time and money.

What is MCF?

MCF is a third-party logistics (3PL) solution that enables businesses to access a world-class fulfillment network that will pick, pack, and ship orders placed on sales channels outside Amazon. If you’re a seller on Amazon, you can use your existing FBA inventory to fill orders on other ecommerce channels. If you’re not an Amazon seller, you can use Amazon warehouses to store your inventory and fill orders on your ecommerce channels.
