Warehow was initially formed out of necessity to offer fulfilment solutions as part of the We Are Pentagon group, a successful tech led marketplace integrator and service provider.
Clients kept requesting support with bespoke and flexible fulfilment needs, so after becoming frustrated at not finding what was needed through a single 3rd party partner, the Pentagon team took this in house and developed effective and efficient ways to offer fulfilment support. The operation has been so successful and the demand so great that in late 2021 the board took the decision to spin the ecommerce fulfilment operation out as a standalone venture and Warehow was born. Warehow has a very experienced senior team with a proven track record of delivering operational excellence and success through high levels of client focus and attention to detail; be that when building businesses from scratch or as part of a major business.
- The classic 3PL model for larger clients.
- A white label solution for marketplaces or retailers to build their own "fulfilled by" proposition.
- A value adding dropship model -unpacking, repacking and dispatching to end users where clients may have either limited D2C capabilities or operational process restrictions.
- Micro warehousing: Aimed at fast growing and smaller sellers.
