James and James has migrated ControlPort – its Queen’s Award-winning order fulfilment software – to Amazon Web Services (AWS), enhancing its speed, resilience and scalability globally. The company joins eCommerce giants such as Graze, River Island, Zalando and Amazon itself on the cloud-computing platform.

James and James first developed ControlPort in 2010, to bridge the gap between modern eCommerce platforms, such as Shopify, and traditional logistics operations. Today, the platform provides warehouse management for James and James’s global network of fulfilment centres; order and inventory management for the 300+ online brands the firm works with; and real-time tracking and returns initiation for their customers.

The move to AWS will provide a more solid foundation on which James and James can scale and optimise its operations, as it brings an additional UK fulfilment centre – six times the size of its current one – online over the next year. It will also provide a faster user experience and improved resilience, thanks to AWS’s global locations, near-instant automatic failover and advanced data security.

James Hyde, CEO and Co-founder, James and James Fulfilment, says: “AWS provides cloud infrastructure for many of the everyday services we take for granted – from banks to healthcare providers to government departments. As such, moving ControlPort to the platform will enable us to scale-up our service more effectively, for both the current surge in eCommerce demand and our future expansion globally.”
