Travel and tourism companies face giant hurdles when trying to distribute their literature to those people eager to receive it.
Not only does the company need to design its tourism materials, but it must also check each address that requests them, put the requested materials together and ship them out — all without missing a beat or losing money. We know that tourism fulfillment can be a difficult process, that’s why we’re dedicated to putting our resources to use to create the ideal 3rd party logistics solution for your travel or tourism company.
You may not immediately think to partner with a 3PL in order to improve the performance of your tourism literature fulfillment, but we’re actually the perfect partner for your industry.
In fact, many of the services we offer can be bundled together to create an ideal tourism fulfillment package, including:
Customer Service. Our customer service team will start the ball rolling by taking orders for tourism literature over the phone or online. Once the team has created a great first impression, it will accurately enter the potential traveler’s information into the system for further processing. Our friendly operators can also remove people when they’ve been placed on mailing lists erroneously.
Letter Shop. In our letter shop, we’ll carefully analyze your mailing list, removing duplicates and bad addresses. We’ll also meter your mail and bundle it according to USPS regulations, saving on postage costs. Finally, we make sure that your mail gets to the post office so you don’t have to worry about slow material deliveries to your potential customers.
Warehousing. While your materials are waiting to ship out to curious tourists, we’ll store them neatly in our warehouse. So we can find them quickly, their bins will be labeled with a special code (we’ll store as many or as few types of literature as you need for your tourism package). We can also kit certain materials together to save space and increase worker speed and accuracy.
Pick, Pack and Ship. Our pick, pack and ship process goes on in the background whenever anyone orders your literature. Those special bin codes mentioned above make it easy for workers to retrieve your materials, which will be bagged or packaged according to your instructions. If a customer has requested more than one informational brochure, we’ll make sure the pieces are packaged together to save on postage.
Of course, these are just a few of the services a 3PL can offer that might apply to tourism literature fulfillment. Companies like ours are happy to design custom warehousing and fulfillment packages that fit perfectly into your existing process.
