I’m doing the same thing for the exact same reason.  I investigated 4 different warehouse providers, and chose  I picked them because they had a warehouse 30 minutes away from SMF3 in Stockton CA where all of my inventory current goes.  I think it’s cheaper to ship the full container to the 3PL and then have it palletized  Each truck load into SMF3 only has to travel 30 minutes so my estimated fee was very low for that final leg.  And my overall cost analysis showed Clutter to be the lowest for my situation.   However, I’ll need another vender for B2C fulfillment in order to be able to handle FBM has Amanda and team are suggesting.  Hope this helps.
