Whether you are planning to start up a new company say for example an ecommerce organization or you have been selling products for a long time, the thought of manufacturing, packing, product fulfillment, warehousing must have brought crumples on your head in different times. Being able to sell your products to your customers is certainly an exciting aspect of any business but how does the entire process shape up?
The process of product fulfillment is certainly one of the crucial parts of any business. What happens after the placement of the order, often decides the credibility of a company especially when it is a startup. Methodically, there are three steps through which product fulfillment can be accomplished and these are:
a) Allowing a drop shipper to fulfill the order.
b) You handle the fulfillment of the orders with the help of your own team.
c) You handover the responsibility of product fulfillment to an outsourcing company. They complete the fulfillment job on behalf of you in exchange of money.
There are certainly many advantages of handling the product fulfillment by your own, but when your business is growing every day and you have the liquid money in hand, you can always afford an outsourcing service provider. This will definitely add a positive flow in your business.
A number of logistics companies are waiting for your offer. Most of them are reliable and they always try their best to make you as well as your clients happy from the very beginning. Let’s hear it from a real life business owner how product fulfillment outsourcing has helped her to grow her business. “I make soft toys mostly for children. It all started with a passion and then got converted into a large business only because of the assistance offered y my product fulfillment outsourcing company” says Stephanie. She also added, “It was really getting harder for me to take care of my orders and my business got stuck. After that, with the help of a product fulfillment company, it became easier for me to fulfill the order of all my customers. Presently, I sell more than hundreds of toys every day.”
This is not an isolated incident; even the big companies are now showing their willingness to work with product fulfillment companies. The spokesperson of a famous shoe making company from Canada says, “It was really getting harder for us to reach all customers in time. One fine morning, we finally decided to outsource our product fulfillment. It’s been 4 years since then and we are doing quite well though we had to change the outsourcing company for once in between.”
The experience is almost the same with any business and all businesses. This is an emerging trend that most of the businesses are adopting now. This is advantageous in many ways. It saves money and time for businesses to a large extent. It reduces the establishment cost of any business. And most importantly, it helps to build up a healthy relationship with the customers.
