TikTok and shopping? Obvious.
TikTok and fulfillment? Who do they think they are… Amazon?
Nope, not a prank: TikTok just outlined plans to open fulfillment centers across the US.
The company recently posted job openings on LinkedIn to help them “build an international fulfillment system.”
We’ve seen this before: TikTok’s system would include international warehousing, customs clearings, and domestic and international e-commerce supply chain systems. Kinda like Amazon…
The only difference is TikTok doesn’t intend to create their own fleet of delivery trucks… yet.
Why we care: If this works, TikTok fulfillment centers could give small businesses and brands alike more options for advertising, selling, and shipping products to customers.
Wonder if we’ll see TikTok and Amazon trucks passing each other on the interstate in the future…
