NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ecommerce continues to grow at record rates. From 2015 to 2021, Statista predicts that ecommerce will increase from 7.4% to 17.5% of overall global retail sales. However, as brands continue to grow their online sales, connection with consumers becomes difficult and even more important.
In order to address brand challenges sellers face in online marketplaces, GEODIS is partnering with Project Verte, an ecommerce platform using proprietary software and blockchain technology to provide brands a transparent and community-driven marketplace. This initiative allows GEODIS to boost the ecommerce capabilities and fulfillment needs of small-and-medium-sized brands.
"While we traditionally focus on enterprise clients, we recognize the growth opportunities for growing brands to connect with their consumers online," says Jerry McDonald, SVP of retail at GEODIS Americas. "We have been looking for the opportunity to work with small-and-medium sized brands, and are thrilled to combine Project Verte's ecommerce and fulfillment platform with our operational expertise and global footprint."
Working with GEODIS, Project Verte has opened their first 750,000 sq. ft. automated fulfillment center in Atlanta, Georgia with immediate plans to expand. The operation uses a variety of innovative technologies within the warehouse, including goods-to-man robotics that provide a scalable warehouse operation for growing brands.
"Project Verte is shaping the next generation of consumer-business relationships through our community-based ecommerce ecosystem," said Julian Kahlon, Project Verte CEO and Founder. "Our technology is uniquely built to give small-and-medium-sized businesses the tools they need to innovate, create, and grow in the present and future state of ecommerce. This initiative with GEODIS propels us into the forefront of the ecommerce industry."
GEODIS and Project Verte are officially announcing their joint initiative at NRF 2019 Retail's Big Show from January 13-15 in New York City.
