Drop Shipping
The FORT System is built for seamless and fully integrated management of drop shipping. For retailers offering products from multiple fulfillers, FORT provides the deep, critical functionality required to ensure proper cubing of all order data, accurate routing, effortless label generation for fulfillers, and full visibility into the Package Life Cycle.

Let SoCal help turn your fulfillment center from a cost center into a profit center.  Create unique Drop Ship sales programs without additions to your inventory or store space:

  • Wine Clubs
  • Gift Baskets
  • Deal of the Day Programs
  • Targeted Offerings to your Proven Buyers
  • Offer Drop Shipments of accessories, foods, glassware, other non-wine products

How Drop Shipping Works

  • Customers place orders on your site which are automatically sent to SoCal WS.
  • Fulfillers are notified, print out orders, and tracking numbers appear in the SoCal System, along with regular package status updates
  • Products are shipped directly to your customer with your company name and logo on the packing slip
  • Zero manual work in routing orders to multiple fulfillers, and each package is accounted for with a tracking number
  • Product is not shipped until it's sold, meaning your operating margins can increase significantly

Eliminate Confusion!

For drop ship fulfillers, SoCal WS offers unparalleled ease of management. All of your orders—from any number of sources—can be routed to a single fulfillment portal. Integration with all major couriers ensures efficient label generation from your own computer to any printer.
