Metro Supply Chain Group, a Toronto-based provider of third-party logistics services, has acquired National Fulfillment Services, a privately-owned company in Aston with a 50-year tenure in direct-to-consumer fulfillment.
Metro President Martin Graham views the acquisition as an important step in the build-out of his company’s e-commerce services.
“NFS has recently expanded its operations onto the west coast of the U.S., and now, as part of the Metro family, we expect to see their service offering expanded to two Canadian centers within the year,” he said.
“NFS was there at the genesis of systems-based fulfillment and grew up in step with that industry,” said NFS President Tom Krueger. “We started developing fulfillment software in 1965, and have built an array of solutions that encompass order management (including payment), customer call centers, and comprehensive warehousing and distribution.
“Simply put, we provide full-service, turnkey, e-commerce fulfillment that can respond and adapt to each customer’s unique requirements.”
NFS is recognized as an innovator in its field, noted for its ability to combine data analysis with warehousing/distribution proficiency and advanced end-user care to provide worry-free, third-party fulfillment to a global customer base.
