Why your Business Needs Order Fulfillment Services

By Walmsley Subscribe to RSS | April 17th 2012 | Views:

The Internet has brought a lot of developments in business; not being able to keep up with these can be catastrophic. For example, the music and film industry need to fight more to stay afloat, while the print industry has reported casualties, like academic giant Encylopaedia Brittanica which just announced that it will no longer be printing its iconic encyclopedia sets. Will the retail industry be next?

Online shopping has largely taken away the need for people to walk out of the house and into brick-and-mortar retail stores. Likewise, the prevalence of tablets and smartphones with access to the Internet at any time has increased the number of online shoppers. Because of this, a business that cannot cater to the needs of the online community is a doomed business. Even those that have e-commerce capacity, but do not have good order fulfillment capabilities would find it hard to compete.

Order fulfillment is the company’s ability to get the product from the warehouse to the customer. This includes processes like picking and packing at the warehouse, as well as transportation and delivery. To do this, especially if you are a small company that cannot afford to do order fulfillment on your own, you need to hire a fulfillment company.

The first thing that you need to ask a fulfillment company before you hire one is about its background. Ask what the story is so that you can get an insight into what it is all about. You might also want to do a check on the company to find out about its financial status; a company that has been closing warehouses or downsizing might not be a good one to hire.

Another thing that you need to determine is the company’s niche. You need an order fulfillment company that is right for your needs and knows how to deal with the product that you have. Look for one that specializes in your product, and not a “jack of all trades, master of none” kind of company.

Sometimes, even the most common questions can reveal a lot about a company. Ask the order fulfillment company you’re talking to about what separates it from other companies in the industry. This might help you learn about perks that the company offers. If the representative cannot answer, it is revealing in itself.

To stay afloat in this increasingly competitive world, you need to find a great company that offers order fulfillment services. For more information, you can visit sites like
