Product Fulfillment Service In South Bend Will Reduce Shipping Costs
SOUTH BEND, Ind, Sept. 26, 2011.-- TechnologyDrive.Com, a product fulfillment service specializing in the handling of high-value items such as musical instruments, has been launched byDennis Bamber, a pioneer in the direct marketing of musical instruments. The company helps reduce its client’s overhead, by taking advantage ofSouth Bend's centralized Midwestern location. More than 40 million addresses in Mid-America can be reached in one day, using lower cost next-day ground shipments; and 75% of theUS population can be reached affordably with 3-day ground shipping.
Bamber started The Woodwind & Brasswind in 1978, growing it into an international retailer of musical instruments. In 1999, he moved the company into a giant complex at 4004 Technology Drive, located near the intersection of theIndiana Toll Road (I-80/I-90) and US 31. Due to legal issues, Bamber was forced to sell Woodwind & Brasswind in 2008. What is not so well known is that he still owns the building -- and 100,000 square feet of warehouse space had been going unused, until now.
“The goal of any order fulfillment company is to help clients reduce their overall operating costs, by providing expedient shipping services and economical product storage,” adds Bamber. “South Bendgives us a unique competitive advantage. Our clients can save on shipping costs by using low-cost ground services, while still promising speedy one-day delivery to major metro markets such as Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Louisville, Cleveland, Grand Rapids, Cincinnati and Milwaukee. Our Michiana location is second only toHarrisburg,Pa.in the number of addresses reachable with low-cost ground services – and there’s virtually no overlap in the markets served!”
TechnologyDrive.Com has an existing customer base and the staff to handle product fulfillment, including E-Commerce consultants who can help Internet retailers improve their sales. Current clients are: MusicFactoryDirect.com, a fast-growing online retailer of musical instruments; The Old Homestead Shoppe, Autoworld, and a new venture, SavingsMall.com, an Amazon.com Platinum Merchant, which will focus on the sale of new products from start-up companies. “Our specialty is the shipping of high-value musical instruments, but no customer's needs are too small -- nor too large -- to handle,” concludes Bamber.
