Airhouse vs. Red Stag

Red Stag Fulfillment has great solutions for shipping big, heavy products or hazardous materials, but lacks the technology and warehouse network that ecommerce brands need to grow. See how Airhouse compares.

Top reasons to go with Airhouse vs. Red Stag

Airhouse is designed to meet the changing needs of scaling ecommerce companies as they grow, with dozens of domestic and international warehouses, user-friendly software, and expertise in both DTC and B2B fulfillment.

We act as an extension of your logistics team.

We understand that you’re not just outsourcing pick-and-pack and storage—you’re trying to take the heavy lifting of fulfillment off your plate. At Airhouse, we assign every customer a dedicated Account Manager who will proactively monitor operations, provide consultative support, and act as your warehouse ambassador.

Our managed warehouse network keeps us flexible.

Most warehouses represent two extremes. They're too rigid, with no tolerance for customization. Or they're too generic, reinventing the wheel every time they try to meet the unique needs of modern brands. Airhouse uses a network of pre-vetted, rigorously tested warehouses to meet a wide array of customer needs without forfeiting speed and efficiency.

Modular services let you build a solution that suits your needs.

Our warehouse network is flexible enough to support any growth strategy. Whether DTC or B2B, domestic or international, you can mix and match our services, warehouses, and support to meet your customers’ demands. 

Our proprietary technology puts you in control.

Your 3PL’s platform is mission control for all things fulfillment—so shouldn’t it be easy to use? Our software, built by Silicon Valley engineers, is central to the Airhouse model because we believe you should be able to control your operations without playing telephone.

Why choose Airhouse vs. Red Stag for your fulfillment?

Customer support

When it comes to something as complex as fulfillment, reliable customer support is critical.

You’ll also have to submit support tickets to send wholesale orders and request projects. 

At Airhouse, we strive to act as an extension of your team. When you work with us, you’ll have a dedicated Account Manager to proactively monitor your operations, consult with you on key decisions, and troubleshoot issues as—or before—they arise. Your Account Manager is available to help streamline project requests and B2B orders, but you can also self-service these through the platform.

Does Red Stag offer multi-warehousing?

Red Stag operates two domestic warehouses. Customers that use both locations can ship to the West Coast from Utah and the East Coast from Tennessee. Airhouse’s network has over 50 locations across the country, and our customers may use as many—or as few—as they want. 

Can Red Stag support custom fulfillment rules?

Red Stag’s software can support some custom packaging rules based on SKU or product ID, but it requires writing custom JavaScript code. At Airhouse, you can set custom if/then logic based on SKU, product, warehouse, ecommerce store, and more—no coding required.
