Webgistix’s Cross-border Shipping Services Support Initiative from Nevada Office of Economic Development 

Las Vegas, Nevada — November 15, 2011 — Webgistix Corporation, the global leader in eCommerce order fulfillment, announced today that it is supporting the Nevada Investment and Trade Revenue Opportunities (NITRO) initiative, which is sponsored by the State of Nevada Office of Economic Development in cooperation with the U.S. Small Business Administration.

NITRO is helping to increase exports from Nevada-based companies. Each year, exports contribute nearly $6 billion to the state’s economy. Nevada’s exports grew 22.8 percent last year and created 3,300 new jobs. Webgistix is supporting NITRO by offering international order-fulfillment services to eCommerce merchants, enabling them to ship products to overseas consumers.

The objective of NITRO is to get more companies into Nevada’s exporter pipeline. According to figures provided by the State, approximately 30 percent of non-exporters say they would export if they had information on how to get started, such as best markets, potential buyers, and export procedures.

“Many mid-size eCommerce companies are unsure about rules and regulations regarding exports,” said Joseph DiSorbo, CEO of Webgistix. “We’ve been helping companies export to international markets for 10 years. We automate the process and handle all the paperwork, breaking down barriers so mid-size companies can sell to consumers around the world. We’re excited to support NITRO and we’re ready to help Nevada eCommerce companies go global.”
