So our team has been visiting different fulfillment centers in the metro NYC area. Thus far we have looked at a number of centers (in fact, just one yesterday!) and have been rating each location on a number of metrics including:

  1. Do they resonate with our mission?
  2. How responsive is their customer service?
  3. Who are some of their other clients?
  4. How orderly are their facilities?

Collectively, these elements will help us determine if there is an opportunity to create a really special, long term partnership. Here is a picture we took of Iris yesterday at one of our site visits. =)
