Capacity LLC - Pick and Pack Warehousing

About


The Capacity Difference

Fulfillment may not be sexy to most. Order fulfillment is not a topic that usually provokes a lot of excitement in others. It's our passion that sets us apart from other service providers. A passion for our clients' businesses; a passion for their products; a passion for doing the work that others can't or won't do as well as we can. Now that is sexy.

Our quality of service results from our can-do approach. That and the skills that come with our team's extensive experience are at the heart of our culture. Capacity's on-the-ground expertise is key. We're steeped in value-added services, EDI and e-commerce technology and fulfillment, as well as managing fulfillment and assembly programs on both coasts. With Capacity you get a single provider for all of your fulfillment needs (including some that you may not even know yet!)

If a job seems out of the ordinary, trust Capacity to provide the extraordinary. We do the basics well, but it's the unexpected where we excel. That's where we are at our best, and where our clients experience the difference of working with Capacity.

Capacity Culture

 

“We like to swim the Atlantic or
the Pacific on a big day...”

In order to do things differently, it is essential to work with businesses that are passionate about making a difference. At Capacity, we're proud of our team's experience, attitude, and the energy we bring to a tough, uncompromising industry.

Those traits we value in our employees make for a company with a strong desire to understand our clients' businesses and to provide the kind of fulfillment solutions that they thought were out of reach. When the decision has been made to call in the cavalry, to expand operations, and to take your business to the next level, Capacity is the chosen provider to the most discerning clients. Our approach is what makes Capacity a trusted fulfillment partner, not just another service provider.

When our clients need to speak to someone, we have on-site experts available. When our clients want to think creatively to improve product packaging, we have the experience, vendors and equipment to make it happen. And if our clients just want to reflect on another crazy day navigated successfully, we're there to bond! Perhaps it's because we know just how much energy goes into getting product on the shelf, but seeing our clients' brands in stores nationwide gives us a charge that never goes away. When our clients meet or speak to any of our team members, they understand how Capacity is the difference that helps to build their businesses.

If you want to secure the best shipping rates and service, you need to have a seat at the negotiating table. Our established relationships with some of the biggest names in the business give you the leverage to command quicker response times and secure rates that others can't access. Decades of connections aren't something you can develop overnight, but choosing the right fulfillment partner is one of the best ways to get off the sidelines and into the game.
