The e-commerce industry is now worth trillions of dollars yearly, but only a handful of people get to take a pie of the gold mine. Hence, rising logistics company and e-commerce automation expert Ascend hopes to help more people access growth opportunities in digital business.
Ascend is a logistics company that operates a wholesale distribution and an e-commerce automation firm. With over ten years of experience and success in the technology industry and over five years in e-commerce, the agency brings its proven workflows and systems to thousands of businesses around the country. Currently, the organization has bases in Los Angeles, California and Dallas, Texas, and hopes to branch out to other locations in the future. Still, even with its two locations, it has tapped into a large base of clients and continues to grow year by year exponentially.
The two founders of the company, Jeremy and Will, have both experienced unparalleled success in the field. They have developed digital assets, campaigns, and marketplaces for themselves and other people many times over. They started Ascend after finding an underserved market of people looking to automate their digital investments or improve a poorly executed strategy by other providers. “Our infrastructure, values and business model separate us,” explains Will Basta, one of the company founders. “We are the first and only company to be a product wholesale distributor, logistics company and e-commerce automation company wrapped into one.”
Ascend’s business model adopts a hybrid approach, sourcing products and then handling storage and prep at one of their two warehouses. The core competence at Ascend is that they do not outsource any part of their business to suppliers, ensuring that their chain remains unbroken and streamlined at all times.
Co-founder and venture capitalist Will Basta is a serial entrepreneur with his finger dipped in many other successful businesses. Apart from Ascend, he has invested heavily in real estate projects and other digital assets that have scaled massively over the years. At Ascend, he takes the lead in helping clients launch, organize, and scale their ventures with managment at every step. Accordingly, the company has now grown its client base to over three hundred clients. Despite expanding its clientele so rapidly, Ascend’s team has maintained top-level customer service and support, putting its partners’ success first at all times.
Ascend’s driving force has been a passion for the automation space and a strong belief in the many opportunities it could afford investors at multiple financial levels. As the world heads into a new post-pandemic reality, Ascend advocates for the continued use of digital platforms and marketplaces to scale businesses, especially since trends indicate that e-commerce will continue to grow even as people head out of restrictions.
Moreover, Ascend takes on transparency, innovation, and sustainability values. These core principles are the foundation for all its business relationships and programs. Will explains how positivity is crucial for success in the e-commerce industry and maintains a firm belief in the power of entrepreneurship and digitization to grow at micro to macro scale. In the short term, Ascend hopes to keep rolling out initiatives to help their clients’ businesses accelerate financial growth.
