Who Needs Fulfillment Services?

If you have a product you want to get out to more than a few people, you probably could benefit from the help of a fulfillment house.

What are the benefits of a fulfillment service? Order fulfillment services provide you with extra warehouse space, increase the efficiency of your order process and ensure that any problems are handled quickly. From virtual businesses to traditional brick-and-mortar shops, anyone who doesn’t have the time or staff to handle orders quickly can benefit from order fulfillment services.

Warehouse and Fulfillment Services

You don’t have to be a big company to need a little hand with order fulfillment. In fact, small, growing businesses are often those that benefit the most. Order fulfillment services allow them to grow without having to hire more workers or manage larger inventories. There’s a lot that a fulfillment house can do for your business, including:

Receiving Deliveries. Don’t have enough time to wait around for your orders to be delivered or are you missing deliveries because of irregular hours?  Fulfillment houses are happy to accept your incoming merchandise.

Processing Orders. Whether your customers are ordering via snail mail, telephone or through your ecommerce site, a fulfillment house can process orders and integrate with the client’s shopping cart system.

Controlling Inventory. By using fulfillment services with integrated inventory management, you’ll get real-time updates on how much of each product is currently in stock, how much is on order and what’s shipping out.

Managing Returns. The returns process – also referred to as reverse logistics – is all about managing customer expectations and providing the highest level of customer service, even when the product is going back to you and away from your customer. Depending on the nature of the merchandise and the business processes of the customer, a fulfillment services company can help manage this process from start to finish, “wowing” the customer and managing the return, receipt, inspection and reverse shipment of the goods back to inventory and the fulfillment services client.

Warehousing Merchandise. It can take an army to manage a small warehouse, but with the help of a fulfillment company, you don’t have to pay one. Maintaining a full-time warehouse can get expensive, especially if your company is expanding or has seasonal fluctuations in inventory.
