Fulfillment Warehousing Services

Warehousing as a Service: What’s to Know?

If you’re expanding an ecommerce business you might be wondering about fulfillment warehousing services. Most small ecommerce companies that don’t partner with a dropshipper are responsible for fulfilling their own orders. This can suffice for small-time ecommerce businesses, or businesses that tend to have the same level of interest throughout the year. For businesses that have the cash on hand to outsource, fulfillment warehousing services may have a lot to offer.

Benefits of Fulfillment Warehousing Services

Not having to go it alone is the most obvious reason to invest in fulfillment warehousing services. You are the one who best knows how to manage your business, generate interest and open up leads. Outsourcing logistics gives you more time to focus on that. Another benefit is that many logistics companies are flexible in terms of their pricing. Clients tend to pay only for the space their stock occupies, which means that during non-peak times they save money on storage. And, of course, if you’re not managing your own scaling orders, you don’t have to be responsible for hiring staff and managing their workloads. Logistics companies specialize in hiring and training staff suitable for order processing, shipping, and inventory management. The best reason to invest in fulfillment warehousing services, however, is efficiency. Once your business reaches a certain momentum, outsourcing your logistics management will save you money in storage, employee costs, taxes, and lower shipping costs.

Why You Might Need Fulfillment Warehousing Services

If you’re too busy handling your order fulfillment to put resources into the growth of your business, it might seem like business is booming, but you need to be able to commit to sales and marketing to sustain growth. Consider outsourcing to fulfillment warehousing services. Additionally, if you’re a company whose stock fluctuates depending on the time of year– for example, if you sell toys and experience significantly more demand in the year’s last quarter, you shouldn’t invest in operating your own warehouse, as the majority of the space (and the money it costs) will be wasted. And, of course, if you don’t have the access to the infrastructure you’ll need to sustain your growth, it’s likely a quicker, cheaper, and less permanent decision to outsource your logistics to a specialist rather than attempt to quickly pick up storage space and staff to manage it.

Which Fulfillment Warehousing Services to Approach

Once you’ve come to a decision about the suitability of fulfillment warehousing services, you might wonder which of the many options is suitable for you. As with many other business partnerships, finding the right fit is essential. Many fulfillment warehousing services specialize in certain industries and types of business, like pharmaceuticals or cosmetics, apparel, or print media. You should also look for companies that already work with businesses similar to your own. That signifies that they’re experienced shipping your goods and have probably gained experience in the kind of problems companies such as yours could encounter in outsourced fulfillment.
