Frequently asked questions
If you have anything else you want to ask, reach out to us.
How is Coldcart different from a 3PL?
Coldcart does not own or operate any physical fulfillment centers. Instead, we have built a network of preferred 3PL fulfillment partners and final mile carriers with the specific needs of perishable shippers in mind. Beyond the fulfillment and shipping services many traditional 3PLs offer, Coldcart’s routing and optimization technology provides the best possible delivery solution for your unique needs.
What shipping carriers does Coldcart work with?
We work with many national, regional, and sub-regional last mile delivery carriers. If your preferred carrier isn’t in our current partner network, they’re likely to be added soon!
Are there any minimums to work with Coldcart and your partner network?
Coldcart does not charge minimums for fulfillment-related services. We know how tough these minimums can be on small/growing businesses and aim to meet you where you are today, and scale with you into the future.
How do we integrate with Coldcart?
Coldcart supports most commonly-used systems like Shopify, Salesforce, WooCommerce, Shipstation, and others. A public Web API is also available if you work with a custom or built-in-house system.
How quickly can we be up and running with Coldcart’s services?
To take advantage of our routing and packaging optimization services, you can be up and running within a day! Getting set up with our fulfillment and shipping network usually takes 1-2 weeks.
Do we have to use Coldcart`s shipping rates, or can we use our own?
We bet you’ll want to use our rates, since they’re some of the most competitive in the industry. That said, Coldcart’s platform is flexible enough to work with your rates.
We love our current 3PLs/fulfill all orders ourselves. Do we have to change facilities to work with Coldcart?
Not at all. We can augment your network where needed and the Coldcart routing technology will optimize across all available facilities.
What 3PLs does Coldcart work with?
Our preferred 3PL network offers locations in key metropolitan areas and provides 2-day shipping coverage for 98%+ of the continental U.S. Reach out to find out more!
How much can we save by working with Coldcart?
The short answer is “it depends”. We’ve seen reductions of 50%+ in shipping, packaging, and handling costs. Coldcart clients also experience increased customer retention rates due to improved on-time delivery and optimized packaging.
For years, Coldcart’s team has been at the center of perishable eCommerce fulfillment and logistics.
From our time across this ecosystem, we’ve experienced firsthand how the complexities of fulfillment directly limit a business’s ability to grow and scale.
