Grow & scale your online business with eCommerce fulfillment
Fulfillment refers to the operational process of managing inventory, picking, packing, and shipping products from online orders for delivery directly to consumers, and processing customer returns. It can be done manually in-house by an eCommerce business, or, more commonly, outsourced to an experienced eCommerce fulfillment centre or third-party logistics (3PL) provider such as Autofulfil.
Why outsource to an eCommerce fulfillment company?
The order fulfillment process is a critical component of any eCommerce business strategy, as most online shoppers make initial and repeat buying decisions based on the cost, speed, and experience of their delivery and returns with a company. If care isn’t taken to meet customer expectations with an excellent order delivery and returns experience, those customers will take their business elsewhere.
In-house fulfillment often makes sense for new startups.
Most new eCommerce businesses start out fulfilling online orders themselves from home, an office, or a retail store. Whether it’s fashion, tech or beauty and cosmetics you’ll pick, pack and ship orders as they come in, then carry on with your other duties. In the beginning of a new startup business, this can be the most cost-effective option to manage inconsistent and low-volume order fulfillment.
Once you’re shipping 100+ customer orders per month, fulfillment quickly becomes more difficult to manage. As your online store grows, the fulfillment process can quickly become an operational nightmare if you don’t have the know-how, capital, space, experience, staff, order fulfillment software systems, equipment, and processes in place to scale your eCommerce fulfillment operation.
Every minute spent on operations and logistics is a minute not spent growing your business.
Perhaps most importantly, in-house fulfillment takes precious time – and a lot of it. Every minute wasted on the operational complexities of managing fulfillment yourself is a minute your team could be focusing on product development, sales, and marketing efforts that grow your eCommerce business.
Outsourcing fulfillment enables brands to quickly and effortlessly scale.
Outsourcing your eCommerce fulfillment to an experienced 3PL partner with the capacity for high-volume order processing takes away the operational headaches and gives you your time back so you can grow your business to a larger scale faster, easier, and more affordably.
How our fulfillment process works
Other benefits of outsourcing fulfillment to a 3PL partner include:
The ability to purchase and store inventory in bulk to reduce costs and improve profit margins
No significant financial investment required for warehouse real estate, warehouse management software, equipment, or warehousing staff.
Instant access to experience – no need to spend time and resources developing team knowledge and skills in logistics.
Better shipping discounts negotiated by a 3PL than you would be able to get from the shipping carriers yourself. Leveraging the 3PL’s higher collective shipping volumes allows you to minimize fulfillment delivery costs.
