Seth Weisberg discusses ABCO and eCommerce

In her article, “How Contractors Deliver When Building E-Commerce Fulfillment Centers”, Emily Beyda sits down with Seth Weisberg to discuss the ever-changing world of e-commerce and ABCO System’s place in that world. Seth Weisberg has been the CEO of ABCO Systems since January of 2003. Weisberg studied at Northeastern University, attaining a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology as well as a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.

Weisberg discusses Amazon’s “expansion of the modern logistics industry” in the 1990s that has entirely revamped the world of e-commerce that the world is both acclimated to and dependent on in the modern day. Amazon’s focus centered around building out distribution centers, as Weisberg breaks down, as the company aptly realized that investing more money, in the long run, can be extremely beneficial.

Weisberg took this philosophy into ABCO systems explaining that the best way to operate in this industry is to “draw on the expertise of fulfillment experts who can create more expensive- but more effective solutions that save money over time”. Delving further into the ABCO way, Weisberg elaborated that there is “no established system” that he subscribes to. An ABCO project begins with the team evaluating a warehouse space to begin the design process, from which point actual distribution methodology is defined.

This process can be likened to “a puzzle […]” Weisberg continues in Beyda’s piece, it “depends largely on each individual’s distribution model […]”. Similarly, the world of logistics as a whole is dynamic, which aligns perfectly with ABCO’s flexible and ever-changing approach to space optimization. Much of the company’s work is done for third-party logistics (3PL) companies, which means that all of the customers of the 3PL have distinctive wants and needs within their space. Furthermore, as Weisberg entails, contracts with these 3PLs can be brief, compelling ABCO to create adaptable systems that can meet ever-changing client needs while abiding by local and state safety regulations- to ensure all customers of ABCO Systems are both safe and satisfied.

This article illustrates how the leadership of Seth Weisberg is embodied by the ABCO WolfPack and the complexity of the thought process that is infused into each project they undertake.
