At Packaging Options Direct (POD) we’ve had an exciting start to the year. In addition to expanding the POD team, we’ve been working hard on redesigning and adding new features to the website. New features are being added constantly, some as recent as last week, with more coming in the very near future. These enhancements are key we strive to be the #1 e-commerce site for packaging.
Here are a few of the recent changes:
1. Website Redesign. Launched in January 2017, this update focused on mobile optimization, providing a cleaner look and feel and better user experience across the site. The responsive design is compatible with all online platforms (mobile, tablet and desktop).
2. Multiple Warehouses. Expanding our fulfillment capabilities beyond our current St. Louis location, we have added the ability to bring all TricorBraun warehouses and inventory online. Currently, we are testing this new capability in Atlanta and Fairfield and will be adding more locations throughout the year. These additions are key to providing the most affordable logistic options in the industry.
3. Expanded Shipping Options through the website allow for United States Postal Service (USPS) and real time LTL shipping options which will allow us to be more competitive on freight, and provide more options to our expanding markets.
More Shipping Options. Beyond LTL and USPS we intend to enable current and prospective customers to arrange local pickup or link their UPS Account, which will allow for a better B2B shopping experience.
Payment and credit terms will be offered at checkout for eligible customers in good standing. This will allow us to facilitate larger orders and deliver the quality service our customers have come to expect.
These, along with future updates, are keeping us busy; and we are extremely excited for the future of Packaging Options Direct. We hope you will continue to follow our progress. Stay connected by signing up for our newsletter, or follow us on your favorite social channel.
