Finding Your Warehouse Providers Just Got a Whole Lot Easier
We're excited to announce our new Premier Provider Program—highlighting our top-performing warehouse providers in the network.
Here at FLEXE, we get the opportunity to work with a lot of great warehouse providers. Now, we’ve created a way to recognize them and a new level of transparency into our provider data.
Every warehouse provider in the FLEXE network undergoes a vetting process before it can be listed in our marketplace. During that process, we assess providers’ certifications for security and safety, their tenure in the industry, as well as the types of storage space and services they offer.
The FLEXE Premier Provider program recognizes warehouse providers who have not only passed our vetting process with flying colors, but have bid on and completed projects with customers, and repeatedly delivered exceptional customer experiences.
Find your providers faster
For our retailer and brand customers, the Premier Provider program provides more transparency and makes it easier to identify which warehouse providers have attained Premier status. When searching for space, the Premier Provider badge is visible near the listing. This level of transparency helps our customers make faster, more informed decisions about which providers to use.
The benefits for our customers are:
- It’s easier to recognize our top-performing providers when conducting a search for warehousing and fulfillment services
- Premier Providers have a proven track record of project success and customer experience
- Can trust that you have a true provider in the success of your business and that your products are in the most capable of hands
