IDS 3PL Kitting Services for Maximum Impact

When your company decides to run a promotion with special pricing for purchasing pairs of different products, it could be a waste of resources if each product in an ordered pair is shipped separately. Then it becomes essential for you to contact your third-party logistics (3PL) shipping provider and ask them to “kit” order pairs of products together into one package for shipping purposes. There’s a good chance your current logistics representative will inform you that they don’t provide those services. If that’s the case, it’s time to find a new 3PL partner! At IDS, we offer robust kitting, pre-kitting, and phantom kitting services to any of our customers who need them.

Your Go-To Partner for Kitting is IDS

No matter the size or complexity, IDS has the equipment, robotic fulfillment technology, and expertise to provide your business with whatever packaging and kitting services you may need. We build thousands of kits on a daily basis for our partners and can do the same for you. Partnering with us for your kitting needs leads to simplified logistics processes, reduced warehouse costs through automation, improved customer experience, and flexibility. You’ll find we are the go-to experts in kitting fulfillment services. Whether you call it kitting, packaging, or bundling, it all means the same thing: Making the purchase of multiple related items easier by grouping them into one SKU (stock-keeping unit). Kitting fulfillment is a process utilized by virtually every industry, from fast food to cosmetics, and is most commonly needed by retailers who sell multiple related products or offer build-your-own package options to customers.

Complex Kitting Project? Bring it on!

IDS can assemble and fulfill point-of-purchase displays, promotional items, and product packaging as a part of our full range of kitting and fulfillment services. Our software and processes support making kits on demand as orders come in and for the creation and storage of pre-made kits for quicker shipping. We also provide complex kit building, premium packages, and shrink-wrapping services cohesively aligned with economical packaging re-configuration services, management of branded or unbranded shippers, and dunnage (bracing materials used during shipping). With packaging and kitting services from IDS, our warehouse workers will receive an order, pick the needed items (automated whenever possible), and then assemble multiple individual items into the finished package. We have the expertise, experience, and state-of-the-art technologies to meet all your “in-chain” packaging and product configuration needs!

The Benefits of Value-Added Kitting Fulfillment Services

When you start thinking about all the innovative ways your company can use kitting to increase customer convenience and satisfaction, you’ll quickly realize the sky’s the limit! All you need is a 3PL fulfillment and distribution partner like IDS to make it happen. Here is a quick run-down of how the IDS kitting and packaging services can benefit you:

Reduced Costs:

You can save money by leveraging our automated warehouses, workers, inventory management software, and other costs while still receiving excellent picking, kitting, packaging, and fulfillment services. These cost savings can help your bottom line, improve ROI, and enhance customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Handling Surges in Demand:

We’re fully prepared to handle any demand your eCommerce or retail store may experience. With a large staff of professional logistics providers always on-hand, you can trust us to consistently deliver timely, precise, and on-budget services. You can count on us to deliver when order volumes exceed expectations due to special promotions and deals, even during the busy shopping seasons.

Multiple Services Under One Roof:

IDS often welcomes new businesses to our services after discovering their current 3PL vendor doesn’t provide the needed kitting services. These new customers have been inconvenienced by slowdowns when they have to request their current 3PL provider to ship the products to another vendor to do the kitting. Ultimately, that business would be better off switching to a 3PL provider who already offers these services to reduce the compounding expenses every time the products have to be moved. With IDS, however, you can take advantage of kitting services under the same roof as part of our overall warehousing and fulfillment services. IDS strives to be your company’s one-stop, all-in-one third-party logistics solution. We offer a wide range of value-added services to support your evolving logistics needs.

Fulfill Multiple Customer Needs with One Transaction:

When you offer options to your customers, they’re more likely to purchase everything they need in one transaction. Because of this trend, kitting has become a powerful tool in a retailer’s toolbox. The key is to make it as seamless as possible. We have years of experience with this process, so you and your customers can expect a frictionless experience every time.

Tracking Metrics for Better Performance:

As your company experiments with how different product combinations and promotions perform, our kitting services will provide the necessary to see significant growth in both product sales and customer satisfaction.

Customized, Branded Packaging: IDS can also extend your branding to these final stages of the supply chain through custom packaging, thereby increasing brand visibility and customer loyalty.
