Streamline Retail Shipping with Proven Retail Logistics Solutions

Partner with retail e-commerce experts for savings, efficiency 

Retail sales aren’t slowing down any time soon, with U.S. nonstore retail sales in particular growing at unprecedented rates despite a post-pandemic slowdown. Behind this juggernaut of growth lies the engine that powers it all: retail logistics. 

What is retail logistics? Essentially, it’s all the plans and processes required to move retailers’ merchandise – either to stores for sale or display or directly to consumers. 

Consumers are at the very heart of retail logistics. And as retail shipping expectations (low cost, increased availability, and speed) continue to skyrocket, retailers around the globe are rethinking their retail e-commerce strategies. 

To improve margins and customer service, many of today’s top retailers are turning to third-party logistics providers (3PLs) like AIT for modern, expert solutions.

And those who partner with the long-time professionals at AIT count on fast, dependable speed to market – so they see profits even faster.
