SoCal Platform

FORT Systems Technology

SoCal is powered by the wine industry leader in fulfillment technology

SoCal Wine Services is powered by FORT Systems, the wine industry's leading SaaS-based fulfillment technology platform.  

FORT's powerful fulfillment management system sets the standards for efficient fulfillment. The FORT System’s suite of features enables even the smallest company to harness powerful tools and functionality typically available only to much larger companies.

FORT provides an enterprise class web-based platform for producers, wholesalers, retailers, etailers, and any company that ships products directly to its customers, enabling package tracking from the point of label generation through to final delivery. FORT is particularly well suited to multi-brand companies, drop-shippers, and companies that offer alcoholic and other regulated products. FORT simplifies the process of shipping, managing, and routing orders, and integrates easy-to-use, powerful tools and administrable customization.

While our core functional expertise is fulfillment management, we offer much more than tools to help manage shipping. Our platform can also help generate market exposure opportunities for suppliers, and greater sales volume opportunities for all levels of distribution. At FORT, everything we do is informed by our simple mission: Simplify the connection between suppliers and buyers.
