[test] Aterian Uses Flexe Logistics Programs to Achieve 97% Two-Day or Less Delivery Speeds

Aterian scales eCommerce delivery and meets customers' delivery expectations with Flexe Logistics Programs.

Challenge

Aterian needed to grow their domestic supply chain network—fast. Traditional logistics solutions rely on large capital expenditures and term agreements. They deliver fixed capacity in fixed locations for fixed forecasts. Aterian recognized traditional solutions prevented the flexibility necessary for rapid product expansion and dynamic customer demands.

Solution

The Flexe Dynamic Fulfillment Program powers two days or less delivery. Aterian responds to customer demands, improves delivery speed and accelerates growth with Flexe’s Dynamic Fulfillment Program. The logistics program adds fulfillment centers closer to customers for rapid delivery. All without CapEx investments, fixed costs or long-term commitments.
