OrderFulfillment.com has its roots in education and office supplies. What started as Mobile Pen Company in 1972, a regional distributor of specialty office products, has evolved into the pioneering e-commerce fulfillment service center you see today. Along the way, our company has forged and evolved into a top-tier 3rd-party logistics organization with industry knowledge only experience can provide.
In specific regards to e-commerce fulfillment, it’s a business we’ve been in—revolutionizing and perfecting—since 1997. Our company specialized in wholesale distributing back then, moving forward with innovative delivery methods such as drop shipping. Third-party e-commerce fulfillment was a natural extension of a business at which we already excelled.
We devised means to handle both full-pallet products, as well as single item orders with great efficiency. With wholesale distribution at our core, unlike traditional 3rd-party logistics organizations, we understand, first-hand, all that is entailed in being an inventory-owning marketer of consumer goods.
