The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the process of receiving, packaging, and shipping goods. In e-commerce these processes are run online. When a business moves a considerable volume of merchandise, there is the option to hire a 3PL–third-party logistics company that can assist in the supply chain.
These 3PL companies provide the logistics functions that allow optimizing part of the manufacturer’s supply chain management. This frees the manufacturer from having to have its own fleet of vehicles or its own warehouses.
Cesar Diaz, who came to the United States in 2010 from his native Venezuela, is involved in 3PL e-commerce and runs an eFulfillment Center. He has a bachelor’s degree in tax sciences with a focus on customs and foreign trade, which came in handy when he began working in a courier company.
After some years, life presented Cesar with an opportunity in 2017. While he was working in Uber in Florida, he met a person who offered him a job in a fulfillment center. Once at work, he realized that his employer required the services of a 3PL company, since he waited over a week to have an order ready. Cesar decided to get a warehouse to start processing the orders in just 24 hours.
In 2018, Cesar created i Logistics USA to offer warehouse services to e-commerce businesses. He partnered with his brother who had a friend who needed the services offered by Cesar’s company. After creating the webpage, more clients began to arrive, which allowed him to acquire the appropriate software that has helped him to reach more than 200 clients today.
There are big companies with long trajectories, but there were also small companies that had grown exponentially in a little amount of time. This motivated Cesar and his brother to continue their own project and offer the best customer service.
It is Cesar’s motivation to always provide the best service coupled with his desire to improve and learn the reason why he understands the importance of mindset when it comes to starting a business.
Cesar’s future projects include having a larger presence in other states of the country, as well as in other countries around the world. They want to have a warehouse of i Logistics USA in at least four states of the United States and expand to Europe, Asia and Latin America.
