The first to connect the supply chain from shopping cart to doorstep, Extensiv also launches Market Insights to guide organizations through ecommerce demand uncertainty
3PL Central—delivering connected commerce omnichannel solutions that integrate systems for warehouse, inventory, and order management—is rebranding as Extensiv to better align to the full-scale, connected, and collaborative software capabilities it delivers to brands and 3PLs.
Extensiv is also announcing the launch of Extensiv Market Insights. The free, continually-updated benchmark tool offers data-driven insights into ecommerce order volumes across key shopping sites.
Extensiv: Creating the Future of Omnichannel Fulfillment
Extensiv, formerly 3PL Central, connects the supply chain – from the shopping cart to the doorstep – with industry-leading technology that provides unparalleled simplicity and value to its customers.
Extensiv’s intelligent distribution is used by warehouse professionals and entrepreneurial brands to transform fulfillment operations in the radically changing world of commerce and consumer expectations.
The decision to rebrand as Extensiv is the culmination of a strategic plan to offer ecommerce brands and third-party logistics (3PL) warehouses a new approach to growth. In 2021, 3PL Central acquired Skubana, Scout Software, and CartRover, eliminating the need for 3PLs and brands to piece together disparate solutions to build omnichannel fulfillment capabilities.
Through its unrivaled network of more than 1,500 connected 3PLs and a suite of integrated, cloud-based warehouse and order management software, Extensiv connects brands and 3PLs to fulfill demand anywhere, anytime, with superior flexibility and ability to scale.

Extensiv is also launching Extensiv Market Insights, a new website that offers, for the first time, order volume trends for leading vendors such as Amazon and Shopify. Trend data is available at https://extensiv.com/market-insights.

- Year-over-year volume trends.Extensiv Market Insights shows a macro view of year-over-year order volume trends beginning in 2020.
- Week-over-week volume trends.Extensiv Market Insights also shows changes to order volumes on a week-over-week basis. This enables brands to benchmark their own results to the seasonality changes across the broader e-commerce landscape.
The first release of Extensiv Market Insights shows:
- Unprecedented pandemic volumes. The onset of the pandemic drove record order volumes for Amazon and Shopify in 2020 between March and May and again in November and December.
- Amazon is beating 2021 volumes this year. Early indications are that Amazon is beating its 2021 volumes, but that Shopify is lagging behind its 2021 numbers.
