E-commerce sales and fulfilment services company Trojan has launched a new Amazon-like service that they call Fulfilled By Trojan (FBT). It is designed to support businesses in a similar way to Amazon by providing support to extend their online offering.
According to a statement released by the company, the service works “whereby a seller keeps an item in Amazon’s warehouses and lets Amazon ship and pack it. However, it has the advantage of being able to sell items across multiple selling channels without any potential increased costs for this service.”
Trojan currently operated a 180,000 square foot facility in Swansea as a fourth party logistics provider, looking after customers’ supply chain functions in “a cost effective and highly controlled way.”
Under the new FBT service, Trojan offers a pick and pack service, warehouse management and storage and a logistics service. SMEs that don’t have the infrastructure to manage as they grow can take advantage of the preconfigured offering delivered by the company.
In addition Trojan said, “The company also has direct integration with several ecommerce platforms, marketplaces and daily deal sites, offering organisations the ability to increase their activity in these areas or expand into these ever growing online sales channels.”
Clive Murphy, managing director of Trojan, said: “There is a clear gap in the market for a service that helps businesses of all sizes to significantly scale or start their internet sales journey. Marketplaces like eBay and Amazon continue to increase their foothold within ecommerce. Companies not selling multichannel are missing out on significant online sales.
“Many businesses often have problems with running out of space or time to manage their customer service and can’t expand to take their business forward as they spend all their time working in their business rather than working on it. Using our services can often be cost neutral for smaller online businesses, as we can save them costs in areas such as postage, distribution and logistics, since we already have this infrastructure in place as a 4PL provider.”
