As a 3PL, you can onboard and ramp-up clients quickly without having to absorb or pass on hefty technology integration and testing fees. Plus Etail was purpose-built for digital commerce, not only integrating systems but normalizing disparate data to simplify forecasting, replenishment and analysis.

Best of all, after a simple integration, you only pay for what you use. Etail is billed at a simple per-order rate with no minimum volume commitment. It’s simple, cost-effective and enterprise-class.
