Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, Whitebox’s new lease is reflective of the company’s rapid growth in Southern Nevada. As ecommerce marketplaces have seen explosive growth in 2020, Whitebox has seen impressive growth of their own: revenue for Whitebox in Q1 2020 closed out 40% higher than in Q4 2019, with revenue increasing another 78% between Q1 and Q2 2020. Additionally, the company reports that direct-to-consumer shipments grew more than 300% over the first half of the year and had 141% growth year-over-year from 2018 to 2019.The company’s local operations began in a modest 13,000 sf of space in February 2019, before quickly expanding into approximately 81,000 sf by October 2019.

“Whitebox originally selected Las Vegas in early 2019 as its West Coast hub largely due to real estate costs, a business-friendly environment, and logistics advantages”, said Alma Cuevas, Director.

Marcus Startzel, CEO Whitebox Technologies, said, “We built our tech-enabled fulfillment network with modern commerce in mind. Our proprietary technology enables both advertising and logistics services for our brand partners. By leveraging insights from both the marketplace activity data and logistics and inventory data generated from those transactions, we have seen incredible growth in the past year. This growth drove our need for additional capacity - adding another fulfillment center to our network enables us to better serve our clients increasingly sophisticated sales and logistics needs.”
