Atomix: Behind the Concept

Behind the Concept

For me, logistics and eCommerce have been my entire life.

  • I grew up in a small business family — my father, alongside his brother and business partner, started a last-mile logistics company in Milwaukee, WI, and have grown the company to 150+ employees. They have inspired me, and their insight has been invaluable.
  • After graduating Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania, I spent two years working on Wall Street in the Consumer Retail Group at CIT Bank covering retail and restaurant businesses. From franchise owners to Toys”R”Us, e-commerce and technology had an unrivaled impact on their business models and opportunities.
  • After CIT Bank, I joined an 8-figure, bootstrapped eCommerce brand (State & Liberty), where I learned the foundational principles on how to scale a successful brand. At the time, I made the (obvious) realization that eCommerce was going to be the future of retail, and I was going to be a part of it.

Entrepreneurship: Growing Up

Enter Atomix: Ecommerce x Logistics

(i) Complexity

(ii) Conceptually Simple

(iii) Highly Fragmented Industry

(iv) A distinct language barrier exists between 3PLs and eCommerce brands

So with this in mind, and our clear view of the underserved market, we immediately got to work.

  • In practice, this meant we’d have to design a proprietary technology platform, own our own warehouse, and create a system to give direct visibility and insight to the ground floor operations.
  • We believed the combination of (a.) user-friendly technology platform and (b.) high-quality, personalized services would be game-changing for the industry.

Just Get Started

Here’s a high-level depiction of the difference:

Here’s a brief overview of how our process works:

1. Consultation:

2. Design:

3. Preparation:

  • Depending on the situation, if we don’t currently stock the proper packaging or supplies, we source it from our network.
  • We provide a technology platform to manage the end-to-end process — orders, inventory, warehouse receiving, and returns.
  • We set up our direct lines of communication with the warehouse team and the customer support team.

4. Go Live:

  • Once our system, processes, and team members are in place, we’re ready to begin operations. This can be as short as three days and up to two weeks (which we’ve fully revamped in 2023.)
