BUFFALO, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Life Storage, Inc., (NYSE: LSI), a leading national owner and operator of self storage properties, announced today the launch of a micro-fulfillment center in Las Vegas, by its subsidiary, Warehouse Anywhere. The strategic alignment of Warehouse Anywhere’s intelligent third-party solution and Deliverr’s tech-based fulfillment network in Las Vegas enhances the fulfillment and delivery of online retail orders on the west coast.
The partnership allows Deliverr to strategically place e-commerce sellers’ inventory in the Warehouse Anywhere micro-fulfillment center in the Las Vegas metro area. From the center, sellers can reach over 27 million people with cost-effective one-day ground shipping or over 57 million people with two-day shipping.

Equipped with the needed infrastructure and technology, Warehouse Anywhere can fulfill e-commerce orders from numerous marketplaces and platforms, such as Shopify, BigCommerce and WooCommerce.
A second Warehouse Anywhere micro-fulfillment site powered by Deliverr’s intelligent network is slated to launch in mid-January 2021 in Chicago.
