Walmart Canada Selects CommerceHub for eCommerce Drop Ship
ONE Connection(R) Platform Provides Supply Chain Performance
ALBANY, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 10/03/12 -- CommerceHub(R), the ONE
Connection for supply chain integration and fulfillment solutions,
has been selected by Walmart Canada to provide supplier integration
and drop ship fulfillment for its eCommerce operations. CommerceHub's
integration technology will enable Walmart Canada to expand product
assortment by growing their direct-ship supply chain.
"CommerceHub has given us the ability to add new suppliers quickly,
with visibility into our supply-chain and fulfillment performance to
discover and manage problems long before they become customer issues.
It allows us to focus more on the customer, ensuring we are
delivering the best experience possible," said Simon Rodrigue, GM of
eCommerce at Walmart Canadawalmart.ca
CommerceHub will provide a direct connection to Walmart Canada's
existing order management system for processing purchase orders,
order acknowledgements, inventory and fulfillment data with customer
direct suppliers. The solution will also support special orders for
both in-store pick-up as well as direct-ship to customers' homes.
The CommerceHub One Connection integration standardizes
communications with direct-ship suppliers, regardless of legacy
technology format, enabling quick on-boarding and electronic
compliance with Walmart Canada's distribution networks. The
CommerceHub platform enables purchase orders to be sent to each
supplier with all the information required to create customized
branded packing slips for orders direct-shipped to the customer or to
a store for customer pick-up.
"The CommerceHub platform will allow us to create a virtual warehouse
of new product offerings to meet Canadian's online needs while
allowing us to bring great products to our customers at great
prices," said Gino DiGioacchino Senior VP of Ecommerce.
CommerceHub's Drop-Ship Master(R) provides the comprehensive suite of
fulfillment management solutions that enables Walmart Canada to
achieve the same levels of customer service, branding and fulfillment
performance through its drop ship network as it does with orders
shipped from their own warehouses.
"We welcome the opportunity to assist Walmart Canada in expanding
its product offerings by reliably connecting with new drop ship
suppliers," said Steve Hamlin, CommerceHub CEO. With over 11,000
supplier connections to manufacturers, distributors and carriers
connected to the ONE Connection Platform, CommerceHub processed over
26 million drop ship orders in 2011.
