Sandy has taught E-Commerce and brick & mortar business to consider outsourcing data and order fulfillment in the face of weather forecasting risks. For example, Karol fulfillment knows that its strategic geographic location away from the Seaboard and yet in proximity to major Interstates serves its clients well. Karol Media's fulfillment and warehousing location is in Pennsylvania.
