FORTRESS has a trained, reliable team. We help you avoid the pitfalls of temporary labor. Economic recovery has affected various cities differently. Competing fulfillment centers located in tight labor markets often have trouble filling their workforces during peak times, or if they can, it may be at a premium price. We are a bulwark against this issue.
Availability of Real Estate
Our Fortress has ample space to handle your needs. Just as in the case of labor, many cities are experiencing tight real estate markets. Fulfillment companies located in tight real estate markets may not be able to find seasonal or expansion space at rental rates that allow them to be competitive in the market. You are safe behind our walls.
Local Tax Climate
Strategy is an important part of any defense. Taxes affecting companies who sell direct-to-consumer vary from state to state. Besides the various approaches to online sales from a sales tax perspective, many states and localities still have inventory taxes that must be paid by the online retailer on inventory located at the fulfillment center. For our online retailer clients, FORTRESS will review their business taxes, a service not commonly provided within the industry.
