Retail fulfillment Services
What is Retail/Wholesale Fulfillment?
If you have a product that needs to be sent over to various wholesale, retail stores, specialty stores or distribution centers, this is your solution.
We will ship large quantities of products at the case or pallet level for you to their final destination, using the ultimate care, and tracking it all the way through delivery using the latest technology.
Retail fulfillment will require the coordination of many external partners. From working with VANS from which various EDI documents are exchanged, trucking companies where orders are routed and clients from whom compliance Guidelines and Routing Guidelines are obtained, Ship Sensei can handle this all for you.
Having a successful ecommerce order fulfillment strategy is not only a good suggestion, but imperative when it comes to gaining a competitive advantage, and standing out in the market. In fact, 63% of online shoppers (and your potential clients and customers) say that excessive shipping fees was their primary reason that they canceled their order. This is why ecommerce fulfillment warehouses like Ship Sensei (headquartered in Medley, FL) are dedicated to keeping your retail fulfillment costs down as much as possible.
There are many ideas that ecommerce businesses may think of when it comes to what the best ecommerce fulfillment strategy is, and often order fulfillment concepts may be misunderstood. Here are some of the most misunderstood order fulfillment concepts:
MYTH: Needing a fulfillment center close to home.
FACT: You should choose a fulfillment center that is close to your customers. Rather than choosing a fulfillment center location or ecommerce fulfillment company just because they are close to you, you should utilize data and let the analysis guide your decision.
MYTH: A rural fulfillment center will save the most money.
FACT: Though the initially cheapest option may seem to be a fulfillment center that’s more out of the way, you’ll probably end up paying more in shipping costs over time since orders need to travel farther to get to where your customers really live- in big cities. Using urban fulfillment centers will save you money in the long run. That is why Ship Sensei’s warehouse is in Miami, a major hub.
MYTH: Warehousing and fulfillment are the same thing
FACT: While warehousing is one component of ecommerce fulfillment, fulfillment centers are designed to turn inventory over fast- not for long-term storage. If you are in need of space to store products that won’t sell for a while, you may want to choose a traditional warehouse or storage unit.
MYTH: It’s cheaper to fulfill ecommerce orders yourself
FACT: This isn’t always true. When your business is just starting out or don’t have a high order volume, you probably should handle it yourself. But if you have a higher volume of orders, it absolutely saves money by hiring a third-party provider like Ship Sensei, because spending all your time on ecommerce fulfillment or having to hire a bunch of people to get the job done will cost much more than using Ship Sensei.
