My friend and I have an opportunity to use unused warehouse space and try and set up a 3PL (Third Party Logistics) Fulfilment center for the small eCommerce players selling on Amazon etc. It has most of the equipment (Forklifts etc).
Our plan would also involve giving customers the opportunity to display their products on an eCommerce site of our own with greatly reduced fees. We are hoping for a snowball effect in that sense.
Does anyone have experience in setting up a Fulfilment center? We have some expertise, but during market analysis, I saw a few big players basically dominating the market in our country, but none combined it with an eCommerce site offering a discount and other incentives to compete with bigger eCommerce sites.
