BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OHL, a leading 3PL, announces 40.27% growth in number of fulfillment orders processed on Cyber Monday compared with 2011. The combination of Black Friday and Cyber Monday led OHL to experience its largest year-over-year volume growth to date.
"We are seeing a confluence of Black Friday with Cyber Monday shopping resulting from consumers engaging retailers both on-line and in the store.
