What is FORT?

"FORT is an agile SaaS fulfillment platform that connects suppliers and buyers for B2B and D2C orders."

FORT is a 3PL logistics / fulfillment platform based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We began with a focus on the alcoholic beverage industry, and developed several features that help manage compliance, reporting, and other critical aspects of highly regulated industries. FORT Systems was established in 1999, and now powers wine fulfillment warehouses around the country and helps manage all aspects of fulfillment and supply chain functionality, including tax paid vs in-bond, compliance and reporting, 3 tier clearing vs direct, batch-lot-serial number functionality, etc.

In addition to our core fulfillment platform, we have added a B2B “Exchange” that sits on top of our fulfillment infrastructure. This platform enables suppliers and buyers to interact seamlessly, and is fully integrated with the warehouse platform.

With the recent growth of the legal hemp, CBD, and cannabis industry, we have launched a separate suite of functionality to address that opportunity. The platform of course retains all the critical functionality we built out for alcohol, but has been enhanced to be cannabis/hemp/CBD smart.

The platform manages both D2C and B2B transactions, and offer unparalleled levels of shipping and fulfillment functionality for regulated products.


FORT scored 83/100 in the Supply Chain Management category. This is based on user satisfaction (91/100), press buzz (25/100), recent user trends (falling), and other relevant information on FORT gathered from around the web.

The score for this software has improved over the past month. What is this?

What do you like about FORT?

We reviewed about six 3PL platforms and FORT and one other came out on top in terms of functionality. FORT was about 3 times less expensive than the other 'ERP Solution,' so the recommendation to our client was easy. FORT made it easy to manage all order types from a single UI: D2C, B2B, transfers, receiving, etc. They also added some custom solutions for our client based on their specific industry, which was hugely helpful. Their team is hard-working and incredibly dedicated.

What do you dislike about FORT?

There's a lot of functionality in the system, and it can sometimes take a while to figure out exactly where you need to go. A few more wizard-driven setup guides might help with that, but it's basically a minor issue. They are always available to help with any process.

What have you been using it for and what problems did FORT solve?

My client was expanding from a small operation to a 3PL, and they needed a system to be able to manage shipments for other companies, manage billing and rate schedules, returns, various brand-specific client messaging rules, dropshipping, and a lot more that other systems had trouble providing. FORT enabled everything they needed, and I'd recommend the platform to anyone.
