Fulfillment for ecommerce – why outsource the order fulfillment process?

You are leveraging the growing trend of online shopping. You’re cashing in on the fact that people want to buy at a lower price, be able to quickly compare deals online and read reviews. And finally, with barely a few clicks, their purchases get delivered right to their door. You meet their needs, but what about yours? You slowly feel the need to support the order handling process in strictly logistical matters. And that’s when fulfillment for ecommerce kicks in. What is it and why should you choose it? You will find it out in this text!

Do you have storage and transportation needs for ecommerce?

You know it. More and more orders. Less and less space in the warehouse. You and your employees are tripping over parcels of goods. Although you can reduce your advertising expenses to reduce the number of orders you receive, but what’s the point? After all, the company is supposed to grow. It’s great that you’re succeeding. But how do you manage just like that? It will take a while before you find new space, arrange to relocate the entire store, hire new employees. Fortunately, there are simpler solutions. You can spare some stress and time if you delegate all this to an external company.

What else is in it for you? A reduction in fixed expenses by 100%!

After all, there are days and weeks when there are more orders coming. Pre-Christmas period, seasonal sales, Black Friday, etc. – you may not be able to handle it on your own then. External warehouses, which do not face the problem of seasonality, are a different story. Your warehouse will miraculously not expand, let alone other resources – including human resources, with fulfillment this issue doesn’t exist. And that means one thing: reducing fixed costs, because fulfillment is a flexible service.

Or maybe you are just starting your e-commerce journey. You’re running your store on Allegro, for example. You’re doing pretty well, but your basement is already full. Besides, you are probably alone with all this: you take orders, pack and ship parcels. The ladies at the post office know you backwards. In addition, you do the accounting and handle the IT. Your kids see you constantly busy, you have no time for them. Why torture yourself so much? After all, that’s not the point of having your own business!
