In this article, I want to lay out the key reasons it is a great idea to outsource your E-commerce fulfillment to a fulfillment center.
WHAT IS FULFILLMENT?
First off let’s get a clear definition of what E-commerce fulfillment is. E-commerce fulfillment is the process by which a 3rd party company handles the receiving, processing, and shipping of any given product.
WHY IS OUTSOURCING FULFILLMENT IMPORTANT TO YOU AS A BUSINESS?
Picture a professional juggler. Let’s say he is juggling 4 bowling ball pins at one time. Even though he is considered a professional, he can only add so many pins until he starts to drop some.
This same principle applies to your business. Finding a 3rd party Fulfillment Center such as Launch Fulfillment can “launch” your business to the next level. No more worrying about shipping labels, shipping logistics, expensive software, ordering boxes, storing products in a warehouse that doesn’t provide shipping services, etc.
When it comes to your product as a business it is imperative that it reaches your customer the smoothest and most reliable way possible. By offloading your fulfillment needs to a 3rd party business you will save time and money.
Fulfillment warehouses such as Launch Fulfillment have the experience needed to negotiate lower shipping rates and secure faster expedited shipping services than a standalone business could negotiate for themselves.
YOUR FULFILLMENT NEEDS
When selecting a warehousing solution it is important to find one that will meet all of your fulfillment needs. Do you need a shipping warehouse that offers freight shipping? Do you need a warehouse that provides shipping overseas? Or do you need branded custom packaging to ship your products in?
These are a few of the questions you should ask yourself when selecting a 3rd party fulfillment center. When it comes down to it, would you rather spend time on growing your business through marketing and sales, or spend time packaging and shipping your own products? Save yourself the headache and let a fulfillment center take care of it.
