What is Third-Party Fulfillment?

The fulfillment process of eCommerce includes picking, packing, and shipping. Within these steps are all the complexities of the process, which include packaging, storage, locating products, inventory maintenance, and logistics management. There are several methods to fulfill orders, including a drop shipper who fulfills orders of your products for you, fulfillment of orders yourself, or working with a logistics company.

The latter method is considered third-party fulfillment. 3PL fulfillment allows you to focus on strategizing and scaling your business. Order management, shipment, and returns processing are all handled by a 3PL that provides fulfillment services. Fulfillment can be one of the most time-consuming and costly processes for any business, particularly eCommerce. In the fast-paced, technologically driven world we live in today, it can take time to keep up with both the demand and the expectations of your customers.

Consistent and reliable third-party fulfillment services are pivotal to any successful growth-oriented business model, and let’s be honest, who needs to be growth-oriented? A 3PL fulfillment partner can locate the critical patterns of an order intake and strategize to provide end-to-end third-party automated logistics fulfillment services seamlessly. When partnering with a third-party fulfillment provider, you should be focused on their ability to provide a fast and effortless experience.

When to Turn to 3PL Fulfillment Services

There are many reasons a business turns to a third-party logistics company for its services; most lead back to the inability to scale. A business strives to grow and continue to scale with the demands of its customers. Businesses like yours work to keep your customers satisfied. What happens when you must catch up on the fulfillment process and leave customers hanging? They may never come back. After all, customer satisfaction is what we all strive for.

Some businesses need more warehouse space, meaning you need more storage space for the demand. Orders begin to delay when warehouse space is limited, which leaves your customers unhappy. A 3PL can offer the technology and space to ensure your orders aren’t delayed and your customers are happy.

Inventory management is a complex aspect of your business, but it can sometimes get away from you. 3PLs offer optimization regarding inventory management, which allows for better, more efficient fulfillment, knowing what products are available, where they are located, and when you require more of something. The fulfillment process is one of the most important parts of the business and one of the most complex. Before the process diminishes and customers leave negative reviews, it may be time to look into a 3PL.
