EDISON, N.J. –
Among its many attributes,
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.
