ModusLink® Included in Gartner’s 2017 Digital Commerce Market Guide

WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 28, 2017-- ModusLink Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of ModusLink Global Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ: MLNK), a global, omni-channel technology and fulfillment provider, announced today that Gartner, Inc., the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, has included the Company in its July 2017 report, The Gartner Digital Commerce Vendor Guide, 2017. ModusLink was identified as a sample vendor in the Warehousing, Logistics and Fulfillment Service Provider category.

According to Gartner, "Third-party warehousing, logistics and fulfillment service providers perform one or more physical logistics functions as a fee-based service on behalf of their digital commerce clients. Their services typically include inventory management; warehousing, distribution and customer order fulfillment; and transportation and shipping management. For digital commerce companies operating globally, they include international logistics management, freight forwarding and customer brokerage. Several logistics service providers also offer extended services, including customer service call center operations, returns and repair processing, assembly and kitting, packaging, postponement, shipment consolidation, and cross-docking."

As the supply chain and logistics industries move toward a smarter and more connected world, it's becoming paramount for companies to digitize in order to optimize and grow their business. ModusLink has become a leading fulfillment provider due to its decades of physical supply chain expertise combined with its digital commerce and data offerings that modern retailers and manufacturers require. The Company has invested vigorously in technology and automation, expanding its suite of solutions to help clients manage their end-to-end supply chain to drive savings, generate growth and improve overall consumer satisfaction. With an overarching focus on delivering an efficient and seamless experience to the end customer, ModusLink manages every facet of the fulfillment process--from traditional supply chain activities such as pick, pack and ship and demand planning services to simplifying the returns process. By integrating the physical supply chain with digital commerce capabilities, ModusLink removes the complexities and risk that e-commerce brings and enables companies to quickly expand into new regions or countries.

“As a best-in-class service providing end-to-end supply chain solutions, we believe our inclusion as a representative vendor in Gartner's Digital Commerce Market Guide validates why brands with complex supply chain needs rely on ModusLink's proven expertise and technical solutions,” said Hans Veenendaal, Chief Commercial Officer, ModusLink. “In our industry, this continued shift toward digitalization, along with the proliferation of smart devices and the global growth around the Internet of Things (“IOT”), presents new opportunities for engaging with customers. It also provides the ability to curate, manage and leverage data that organizations can turn into actionable knowledge to grow their businesses. Our relentless focus on delivering a comprehensive end-to-end supply chain--including digital supply chain solutions and analytics--provides customers with the ability to expand their business, both globally and digitally, while enhancing their overall value proposition.”
