While maintaining an ecommerce business, there are so many elements that must work together for everything to run smoothly. Of course, product fulfillment is a major part of that. Fulfillment services get your products to your customers and helps ensure their satisfaction. Here are three tips to help improve your product fulfillment and ecommerce business.
Be where your customers are: Shipping rates from major carriers can be safely expected to increase almost every year. The closer your goods are to your customers, the lower your shipping costs will be – allowing you to pass the savings on to them. Our expanded east coast warehouse is ideally situated in the most densely populated area of the US, with close proximity to New York City, allowing convenient access to the ports of New York and New Jersey and major distribution points up and down the coast, across the country and around the world. And, since 65% of all e-commerce packages are shipped east of the Mississippi, we are bringing you closer than ever to the majority of your customers.
Diversify: If it’s possible for you to diversify your clients, you should. If you sell only to users on your ecommerce site, you miss out on the advantages that a retail partner can offer. Likewise, if your products are in brick-and-mortar stores exclusively through retail partnerships, you could broaden your reach (and sales) by selling through your own site. Whether you’re selling B2C or B2B, Fulfillment Works has the logistics and inventory experience to help you grow your business.
Focus your efforts: The larger an ecommerce company grows, the more attractive fulfillment outsourcing becomes. Why? By outsourcing fulfillment and warehousing to a reputable company, ecommerce companies are able to lighten their loads so that they can focus on what they do best – marketing, customer service, and procurement.
