Shopify Fulfilment Network is expected to lower shipping costs and improve delivery times for SMBs.
This week, Canadian e-commerce platform Shopify launched its brand new Shopify Fulfilment Network for US-based merchants. The new network uses Shopify’s machine learning-driven smart inventory allocation technology to determine the closest and most efficient fulfilment centres for your business.
Why we should care
For SMBs being edged out by giants like Amazon, accessibility to an inventory fulfilment network — and the integrated technologies — could play a key role in helping small businesses stay competitive and allow them to grow.
According to Shopify, the new system does not require advanced technical skills. Thanks to this, the system can be used by busy digital marketers operating with limited resources to market products and drive e-commerce sales.
