Cushman & Wakefield brokers fulfillment facility lease for ShipFusion,ph1

Cushman & Wakefield represented e-commerce fulfillment company ShipFusion Inc. in its new, 381,600-square-foot lease at 365 E. North Avenue, in suburban Carol Stream, Illinois. The location will be home to ShipFusion’s new U.S. flagship operation. The Chicago-based company provides proprietary inventory management software and a wide range of fulfillment services including freight, insurance, returns and custom workflows.

ShipFusion was represented by Cushman & Wakefield’s Doug Pilcher and Jason West. The property’s landlord, Link Industrial Properties, was represented by David Prell and Kevin Segerson of CBRE.

“It’s been incredible to see ShipFusion’s rapid growth from a 25,000-square-foot property just five years ago to where they are today,” said Pilcher. “We’re excited to be able to bring their U.S. headquarters under one roof in a state-of-the-art facility, with easy access to I-355 and both Chicago international airports.”

Completed in 2017 as a spec development, the Class A industrial facility located in DuPage County will include more than 330,000 square feet of warehouse space, in addition to 40,000 square feet of temperature-controlled space, and 8,500 square feet for corporate offices. Building features include 36-foot clear heights, cross-docks and high visibility off North Avenue.

“As online retail continues to grow at a rapid pace, the need for flexible e-commerce fulfillment with strong software grows with it,” said Brandon Luft, co-founder at ShipFusion. "This new facility allows us to expand our operations significantly and serve a larger number of e-commerce clients across the globe and the U.S., as they scale their businesses.”
