Ware2Go offers a nationwide network of certified warehouses and technology to streamline fulfilment across sales channels for a fully scalable and on-demand solution, making 1-2 day delivery easy and affordable for everyone.
Today Steve Denton, CEO at Ware2Go, joins me to chat all about Ware2Go, what they do, how customer buying habits are driving innovation in the industry and the future of integrated, flexible and data-driven supply chains.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
[06.00] Steve talks about his incredible journey through the industry, incorporating marketing, ecommerce and supply chain, and how he came to Ware2Go.
