Valencia, CA – January 25, 2016 – AMS Fulfillment has been named a Multichannel Merchant Top 3PL for 2016. The LA based fulfillment services company is part of a list of leading third-party logistics providers selected by the editors of Multichannel Merchant.
Advantage Media Services, Inc. (AMS Fulfillment) is a full-service order fulfillment company operating as a third-party resource for warehouse management, order management and fulfillment services. AMS is a private company, majority-owned by executives Ken Wiseman and Jay Catlin. The company operates seven facilities in the Santa Clarita Valley (Los Angeles), with strategic partners in Canada, the Midwest and the East coast. AMS has been profitable and financially self-reliant from its first days of operation 14 years ago. In those years, the company grew tremendously, now employing more than 300 people.
To be designated as one of the top 3PL service providers is a recognition given to companies that have reached a certain quality level. When asked about the recognition, Ken Wiseman, CEO of AMS, said: “We of course are very proud to receive this recognition. We do so, with an understanding that our success is driven by the balance we achieve through evenly focusing our commitments on our Customers, our Organization, our Community, and ourselves. Financial success is merely an outcome of this balance.”
With the growth of ecommerce and the number of 3PLs growing, Multichannel Merchant felt it was important to designate 3PLs that were ecommerce qualified and experienced. Their online resource is a searchable database/directory for merchants looking for expert third-party ecommerce fulfillment and logistics services providers. Accessing the database, merchants are able to see each service provider’s featured capabilities, ideal client types, equipment and systems, contact information and more.
When AMS President Jay Catlin was asked why he believes AMS was selected as a leading 3PL provider, he responded, “What I believe sets AMS Fulfillment apart from so many other companies in our space is the extent to which we go in servicing our clients. Our approach to fulfillment services is pro-active. At AMS, we have a strong and experienced team of operations professionals, both in the front office and on the floor. Our team naturally and inherently becomes engrained in our clients’ businesses. We continually offer order management and operations-related advice, and collaborate with them to enhance efficiency and continuously improve the overall supply chain process.”
Catlin went on to explain how AMS is unique: “We are extremely adept at both wholesale/business-to-business fulfillment as well as ecommerce/direct-to-consumer. We route product to virtually every large retailer in the U.S., from department stores to chain/drug/mass, and comply with their unique routing requirements. In addition, we are shipping 10,000+ ecommerce orders every day! Our clients love the fact that we can handle any pick-pack-ship fulfillment challenge that comes our way. Furthermore, we have become highly adept at warehouse management solutions that capitalize on our ability to fulfill all sales channels from a single inventory.”
