ALLEN, Texas, Oct. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PFSweb, Inc. (NASDAQ: PFSW), a global commerce services company, is opening a new fulfillment distribution center in Southampton, England.
As a part of its operations business unit, PFS, the company has operated a centralized European fulfillment model out of Liège, Belgium since 1999.
