Beyond Borders: How Portless Streamlines Global Fulfillment For DTC Brands With Izzy Rosenzweig

A Shopify Podcast To Grow Revenue And Loyalty

In this episode of the Shopify Ecommerce Podcast, I chatted with Izzy Rosenzweig, the Founder & CEO of Portless.

Izzy Rosenzweig, a veteran of the DTC industry for over 10 years, gained recognition by launching his first DTC company in 2012, specializing in home and kitchen products. He successfully delivered over 2.5 million packages worldwide. After opening his own China-based fulfillment center to improve customer experience, Izzy recognized an opportunity to assist other DTC brands with direct shipping to their customers, leading to the birth of Portless. Portless aims to revolutionize the industry by massively improving a brand’s cash flow and profit margins through direct fulfillment.
