Flexe Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Flexe Logistics Programs

Targeted, asset-independent supply chain solutions

  • What is a Flexe Logistics Program?

    Traditionally, shippers solved logistics problems using an owned network or outsourcing to 3PLs. A Flexe Logistics Program is a third way to solve fulfillment, distribution, or capacity challenges that doesn’t involve capital expenditure or a long-term lease. Flexe Logistics Programs combine technology, networks, and a transactional pricing model to solve the toughest omnichannel logistics challenges. Shippers access world-class warehouse and transportation networks through a single technology integration. Programs dynamically scale up or down based on need, while the shipper pays only for what is used.

    Flexe serves the retail, consumer goods, food and beverage, and industrial and manufacturing industries.

  • How does Flexe ensure the quality of operators within the Flexe Logistics Network?

    Flexe logistics providers are extensively screened before joining the Flexe Logistics Network. Flexe performs site visits to ensure that the facilities and processes meet Flexe quality standards. Flexe tracks ongoing operator quality metrics through the Flexe Logistics Platform. The Flexe Operations team immediately addresses any issues that arise.

  • Who assumes liability for inventory when it enters the Flexe Logistics Network?

    Flexe operators assume liability for losses or damages that occur within the facility. Operators do not cover damages caused by “acts of God” and/or “acts of nature,” and the customer assumes liability. Each operator holds proper liability insurance at all times.

  • Can shippers access inventory at the warehouse?

    Due to liability and security concerns, shipper access is not typically permitted. However, inventory audits are allowed, and shippers must schedule audits with a Flexe Logistics Analyst in advance.

  • How is inventory tracked within the Flexe Logistics Network?

    Pallets are tracked via a License Plate Number (LPN) upon entering a warehouse. Floor-loaded cartons are tracked based on SKU and quantity received. Audits are performed on all inventory entering the warehouse to identify overages, shortages, or damages. The Flexe Logistics Platform supports cycle counts to identify discrepancies in stored inventory.

  • How does Flexe handle inventory discrepancies and damage claims?

    Each shipper has a dedicated Logistics Analyst to ensure the Flexe Logistics Program’s success. Contact the assigned Logistics Analyst to address any discrepancies or damage claims.
