As the percent of online sale grows and as the line between web and traditional retail store fulfillment blurs, eTailers and brands need to assess their fulfillment capabilities and those of their 3PL warehousing partners. Efficient omni-channel distribution is now a requirement, not a nice-to-have.
KANE integrates order processing, inventory management, pick and pack services and transportation management for a single-source eCommerce and retail fulfillment solution from multiple facilities across the U.S. Just plug in and let us handle all your fulfillment warehouse details.
With KANE, we were looking for a leader in distribution management with an empowered culture that values hard work, disciplined processes and accountability.
- VP of Supply Chain, Nutrabolt
Nutrabolt markets sports nutrition supplements to fitness enthusiasts worldwide. The company was named to the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S. But with this growth came operational challenges. The company needed to find ways to process orders faster and more efficiently and to economically manage dramatic volume swings.
Started by two Brown University students in 2010, today Rip van Wafels sells its breakfast wafels online and in coffee shops and specialty retailers throughout America. With KANE as a pick and pack partner, owners Rip Pruisken and Marco DeLeon were able to focus their time and energy on channel expansion to grow the company, while KANE managed all details of online fulfillment, from order receipt to shipping.
“We needed a fulfillment partner whose capabilities were sophisticated, cost effective, and scalable. As our logistical needs have increased, KANE has provided great guidance and support along the way.”

Like most things, a good fulfillment process starts with sound planning.
Our engineers work with your team to design the process flow and ensure the required system integration is in place for receiving orders and providing the necessary track and trace. For pick and pack services, we may use different technology solutions to increase efficiency, depending on the volumes. The higher the volumes, the greater the need to automate the pick process to control labor costs.
