EBay Enterprise Expands Operations in Canada With New Automated Fulfillment Center
By: eBay Enterprise April 01, 2014
An automated, 150,000-square-foot fulfillment center is planned for Ontario in the second quarter, according to eBay Enterprise.
The facility will support client growth, including The Children’s Place, which recently signed a new multi-year agreement with eBay Enterprise. The Children’s Place, the largest pure-play children’s specialty apparel retailer in North America, has been an eBay Enterprise client since 2011. The renewal includes fulfillment services for the company’s rapidly growing Canadian ecommerce business.
“The Canadian market is providing new commerce opportunities for brands and retailers and our clients are turning to us to support their growth strategies in this Region,” said Tobias Hartmann, interim president, eBay Enterprise. “We are committed to offering our clients the capacity, speed and scale required to deliver an exceptional experience to their Canadian customers.”
The new facility extends eBay Enterprise’s fulfillment and freight offerings in Canada and includes automation, such as conveyance and put-to-light technologies, to speed package delivery times.
