SAN FRANCISCO- STRONG systems, the leading provider of fulfillment and shipping software for the beverage alcohol industry, announced the launch of FORT Ship. FORT Ship provides a streamlined interface for alcohol shipping and is fully integrated with major carriers that deliver compliant packages. Unlike FORT’s comprehensive warehouse management platform, FORT Ship is designed primarily for self-shippers and offers a streamlined and highly efficient solution for licensees.
FORT CEO Scott Liebman said, “In order to make FORT Ship as user-friendly as possible for self-shippers, we focused only on the essential features businesses need to ship packages, whether it’s whether direct-to-consumer orders or commercial orders. Rather than including features like inventory management, for example, we focused on fast carrier label generation and seamless integration with industry-leading platforms.
Liebman added, “Many wineries have order and inventory management systems, point-of-sale systems, etc. seamlessly integrated into the other systems on which they rely.
By design, FORT Ship does not include some of the more complex WMS functionality, although it still relies on the same FORT engine that powers many of the industry’s leading fulfillment warehouse operations.
For the past 20 years, FORT has provided shipping and fulfillment solutions to the wine industry. While its customers can be found in several different industries, FORT continues to focus on providing best-in-class solutions to the complex and highly regulated world of alcoholic beverages.
