So why did Richard decide to choose 3PL as his fulfilment partner? There were three main reasons:

01. Ability to scale

Allowed ClearCycle to onboard some of the biggest names in retail.

02. Deep understanding of marketplace requirements

Navigating the increasingly strict compliance criteria.

03. End to end solution

Means that 3PL did the hard work and ClearCycle could focus on growing their client base.

The Challenge

“Resale can be costly and time-consuming, but our platform helps brands take control of the resale market” Richard explained, “One of the major challenges was getting overstocks and refurbs back to market as quickly as possible.”

ClearCycle required an operational logistics partner that would help them to manage scale and bring expertise and understanding of marketplace requirements and increasingly strict marketplace metrics and compliance (were looking at you (eBay and Amazon!)

The Solution

Richard needed much more than a fulfilment partner. He needed a partner that could do that little something extra.
