Ship Apollo announces today, the launch of its new fulfillment solution-facility to service Consumer Packaged Goods and eCommerce SMEs with high-growth potential. In addition to warehouse and fulfillment services, Ship Apollo will provide regular reporting and analysis to help its clients optimize their supply chain management and shipping costs to customers.
Founded by three entrepreneurs with a track record in building and scaling successful eCommerce companies, Ship Apollo was created as a specialized fulfillment solution to accommodate the needs of fast-growing startups.
“When [Joseph Ng and I] were growing Umoro, we went from selling hundreds of units in a month to quickly selling hundreds of units in a day. We ran into a lot of issues working with local fulfillment centers because they weren’t built to handle the expansion of a fast-growing startup,” says Justin Rosete, Co-Founder of Ship Apollo. “We had to be nimble and flexible, so we ultimately decided to bring fulfillment in-house even though it wasn’t the most cost-effective.”
For startups that require fulfillment services, Ship Apollo is uniquely positioned as a long-term partner rather than just a vendor. The Co-Founders are well connected amongst influencers, industry players, creatives, and investors across North America and intend on leveraging their network to support their client’s growth.
“With our combined experience and network, we really can help with all areas from manufacturing, digital marketing, trademarking to raising capital,” says Larry Lau, Co-Founder of Ship Apollo and investor of consumer brands including Kollar Clothing, Myodetox, Look Organics - all of which are clients of Ship Apollo. “We’d love to put ourselves in a position where our clients think of us as advisors to their business.”
A second facility in Vancouver is currently being planned to service West Coast companies while accelerating freight warehousing to better service existing and future high-growth brands across Canada.
