Maintain Your Supply Chain Efficiently with Fulfilment Services

Supply chain can be a big problem for small and medium sized businesses. Where you sell a product, it’s vital you can supply that product at the speed your customers are expecting. Warehouse fulfilment services partners are an ideal way to make sure the stock control and delivery end of your supply chain works as well as the rest of your company.

Ultimately you’re talking about the fact that you are not a professional fulfilment company yourself – so unless you are lucky enough to have a top notch warehouse team in place, you are unlikely to be able to run your supply chain with the same level of skill you give to creating and marketing your products.

There’s another problem with in house fulfilment services too. When you take your supply chain fulfilment in house you can run it perfectly for your current size – but what happens when your company starts to grow? Normally there’s a horrible crossover period where your warehouse is too small for your new order volume, but your new order volume is not yet generating enough revenue to get into expanding your stock holding area.

By using outsourced fulfilment services you bypass this problem completely. A third party fulfilment partner is there to lend more than just its expertise – tough the expertise of course is very helpful – it is also there to supply you with as much space as you need for storing and shipping your stock.

Effectively, the outsourced fulfilment services partner becomes your own flexible warehouse department, able to grow in line with your business and keep the supply of your products running efficiently at all times.

Efficiency is obviously key to the customer service experience – when your customer orders your products, and is told to expect those products by a certain date, he or she naturally gets disappointed if there’s a hold up, or worse if they are sent the wrong item or something breaks in the post.

Your order fulfilment services partner is there to make sure none of this happens. That’s a simple function of the business your partner is in. A business exclusively given over to warehousing, stock control and order fulfilment has the technology, the equipment and the business processes in place to keep disruption to a bare minimum.

The passage of information is extremely important for maintaining an efficient supply chain. You can’t keep tabs on your order fulfilment unless your fulfilment services are quick to update you (and also your customers) on the status of every order. That means despatch emails, update emails, regular tracking information and rapid information of completed orders. A good order fulfilment services partner can notify you of completed orders as many as seven times in one day – ideal for keeping a tight rein on the flow of your products.
