Flexport Acquires Shopify Logistics Expanding its Global Services into Last Mile and E-Commerce Fulfillment Becoming their Official Logistics Partner
Flexport, the leading tech-driven logistics platform, today announced the acquisition of the assets of Shopify Logistics, including Deliverr, Inc. Flexport’s technology now makes it easy for businesses to plan, visualize and execute the movement of goods from manufacturer to the customer’s store or door unified under one technology platform.
Through the integration of Shopify Logistics, Flexport will strengthen its advanced AI-driven optimization to streamline the full global supply chain, reducing costs and improving reliability for customers. Traditional supply chain technology has failed to create a single system for end-to-end supply chain planning, visibility and execution. Flexport intends to change all that, reducing out-of-stocks for customers, costs for companies, and decreasing the environmental impact of the movement of goods.
