Founded in 1999 in Austin, TX, Newgistics is one of the largest and most successful US based companies that you have probably never heard of. We are an online retailer’s “personal Amazon.com”, providing retailers with a wide range of state of the art, end-to-end e-commerce, fulfillment, and parcel solutions driven by technology. The difference between Newgistics and Amazon is that Newgistics’ clients get all of Amazon’s scale and capability but keep their own branding and experience for their customers — so they differentiate themselves based on value and not just price. Newgistics has over 500 name brand retail clients and over $500M per year in revenues.
