EDISON, N.J. – Among its many attributes, Newegg.com is renowned for its fulfillment efficiency.
The No. 1 IT/CE specialty e-tailer boasts that
all orders received by 3:30 p.m. are shipped that
day from one of three regional distribution centers,
and Black Friday is no exception. Last year fully 85
percent of all Black Friday orders were processed
before Saturday despite the number of packages
more than quadrupling to 165,000 from the typical
40,000 per day.
To get a first-hand look at Newegg’s fulfillment
process and its preparations for Black Friday 2011,

center here the week before Thanksgiving.
