Las Vegas, Nevada — October 28, 2011 — (Business Wire) — Webgistix Corporation, the global leader in eCommerce order fulfillment, today announced the opening of a new fulfillment center in Atlanta, Georgia, expanding Webgistix’s ability to offer eCommerce retailers two-day, ground delivery to more than 95 percent of the U.S. eCommerce buyers, and one-day ground delivery to 25 percent.
The addition of a fulfillment center in Atlanta is Webgistix’s third major expansion this year.

Our expansion into Atlanta is the latest move by Webgistix to empower all eCommerce retailers to deliver orders with speed and accuracy exceeding industry heavyweights.”
