Grow Your Business. Hire A Fulfillment Company
Fulfillment is defined as the achievement of a goal. It’s also a business model that allows companies to outsource their product storage, picking and packing of orders and product shipments to its customers. A good fulfillment company provides specialty services like cross docking, kitting and assembly, freight repair, and even customer service and returns.
Once product has shipped, fulfillment companies update the status of orders on an
e-commerce platform, POS or order management system. They can also set up automatic email notifications for customers, providing shipping confirmation and tracking. All of these valuable services are designed to help small marketers, manufacturers and e-commerce businesses scale more easily.
Is it a good time to consider outsourcing? If order volume is growing and customers are more geographically diverse, and if a disproportionate amount of management’s time is spent running the warehouse and shipping functions rather than on product development and marketing, the answer is yes.
This makes particularly good sense during the holiday months with a limited time frame to capitalize on peak sales. It provides immediate flexibility and the ability to expand without adding extra personnel and space.
