We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Townsend and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tiffany, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
The global pandemic created increase in online sales. Ecommerce businesses grew over 34%. Established brick and mortar Stores were forced to close their doors unexpectedly. There was a need for a full-service fulfillment center. With new business creation quickly, people lacked the knowledge of the packing and shipping industry.
We took the opportunities to serve and educate small business owners in the product fulfillment and shipping areas helped birth Ship Black; Businesses Learning And Collaborating for Knowledge. Since then, I’ve also created a non-profit to serve my community; Pack-N-Pour, an organization for teens and young adults on the autism spectrum to learn job skills and become employable. Today she serves several e-commerce businesses in the Houston area allowing them scalability and growth.
