In the tech based world of the 21st Century business never really stops. Between international deliveries, international customers, and online service, shopping, and support, there’s no time when business isn’t being done.
For your business, whether it’s located in a brick and mortar storefront or within the online ecommerce marketplace, having the flexibility to conduct business operations around the clock means there’s never a time when you’re not able to expand your profit margin.
Whether you spend your second and third shifts concentrating on website and ecommerce development, expanding your order fulfillment capabilities, or growing other areas of your back end, “staying open” all the time lets you grow your business all the time.
One of the most cost-effective means of insuring continuous, round the clock growth is to employ the services of a third party, independent fulfillment service house. These logistics management companies assume control and supervision of all your order fulfillment needs, including warehousing, order processing, and order shipment preparation. By hiring such a company, you’re able to trim your own operating costs while at the same timing boosting your efficiency and reliability. Instead of devoting countless time and money towards trying to supervise your own logistics, you can instead focus with freedom and assurance on the goals of making your market presence larger, day and night.
Business can retain the services of a third party fulfillment service providerthrough a contractual agreement that allows the service provider control over the business’ back end responsibilities. The service provider then begins accepting the client business’ deliveries into its own storage and processing center, directly from the client business’ supplier.
Once inside the climate controlled and electronically secure warehousing facilities of the fulfillment service provider, your product inventory is kept safe and monitored until each unit is needed for customer order fulfillment. The product is handled and prepared for shipment by the service provider’s trained and efficient staff, in surroundings as protective and safe as the warehouse.
Upon packaging, products are assigned a tracking number and labeled with your professional address and corporate logo. This essentially removes the fulfillment service provider from visibility during the transaction, helping in turn to build your name in the industry and market place profile. The fulfillment centers accomplish such operations regularly, helping your business to constantly expand and grow day and night.
