The spring and summer months aren’t just time for vacations – they’re also time to get your business to the next level of development. As your business enters the warmer months of the year you’ll want to take advantage of the boons to commerce that such weather typically provides.
For thousands of small business owners taking care to reinforce and build their annual profit margin in the warm seasons offers a great means of preparation for the winter holiday shopping rush.
One of the best ways of streamlining your company’s order fulfillment is to outsource your back end logistics management needs to a fulfillment service provider.
These highly efficient, expertly-trained companies specialize in making sure the warehousing, shipment processing and shipment preparation needs of their client businesses are met with the utmost level of speed and reliability. Many also offer enhanced optional features to help small business owners develop and broaden their front end business capabilities, as well. It’s no wonder that thousands of small business owners across America are turning to outsourced fulfillment to help them reach their business goals.
The service provider company maintains state of the art and climate controlled warehousing facilities that can accommodate any amount of inventory no matter how large or how small. The fulfillment company hires only the most qualified staff to manage and supervise the product inventory as well, giving the client business the most efficient and reliable warehouse fulfillment possible.
Outsourced Shipment Processing
Service provider companies take their order information directly from the client business, in some cases through direct access to the client’s shopping cart software system. Once the order is received warehouse staff workers draw a sample product from inventory and bring it to the processing center. Meanwhile, the shipment’s logistics are determined, including contacting a shipment delivery service and gaining a tracking number for the completed parcel.
Order Shipment Preparation
The product sample is carefully packaged by experienced shipping experts at the fulfillment center, using only the finest wrapping and cushioning materials. The tracking number is provided to both the customer and to the client business. Finally, a label is applied that shows the business address information and company logo of the client business, identifying its order source.
