Patrick Cadic, vice president of sales and marketing at UPS fulfillment platform Ware2Go, commented: “Shopify's addition of fulfillment capabilities is confirmation that we're addressing an important challenge in the market. As consumer expectations for both B2B and B2C are set by the biggest players in retail, small and mid-sized businesses are under more strain than ever. A data-driven logistics solution is a critical piece of the puzzle to level the playing field. Going forward, the leaders in this market will be those that give every business the independence to pave their own way.”
