Warehouse Technology

Kanban’s 3PL service offers a full-featured warehouse management system that gives you 24/7 visibility to your orders and inventory. Most often, we operate using Kanban’s full-featured WMS. But in some cases, our customers prefer that we use their systems, which we install in Kanban’s warehouse. Whatever makes the most sense to you, we’re flexible.
