Fulfilment Services – Expert Order Processing with The Delivery Group

Here at The Delivery Group, our fulfilment services can help get you some extra time by managing order fulfilment, preparing shipments on your behalf, and shipping your orders for you via third party logistics (3pl).

Fulfilment services are great for those who have outgrown their current base of operations and are in need of larger warehousing and staff capabilities so you don’t have to ship your stock manually.

Our cost-effective services don’t only come with the lowest rates on the market, but rates are completely bespoke to you; meaning you’ll only be paying for what you need to. Depending on your chosen fulfilment service, you could be charged per hour, or per unit/pallet. The provider you choose will tally the costs for certain services. These include:

  • Receiving
  • Storage
  • Picking and packing
  • Shipping
  • Kitting or bundling
  • Returns
  • Custom Packaging
  • Gift services
  • Setup

All fulfilment centres share the same goal, however, they all operate slightly differently. Acting as a command centre for all of your order preparation and shipping needs, fulfilment centres can also be used as warehouse spaces for inventory storage. So when your business expands exponentially, and you simply don’t have the space to hold all of your product and inventory, fulfilment centre warehouses allow you to hold onto your inventory without worry.

Some fulfilment service providers also have multiple fulfilment centres in different locations – either domestically or globally. This allows their users to service customers in multiple locations nationally or internationally far more quickly. For ease of transport to international consumers, you can utilise warehouse services in multiple countries around the world.

When Should You Begin to Outsource fulfilment?

If you’ve just got into the business of eCommerce and you’re just opening up to trade, you’ll typically be starting out by fulfiling your own orders – eventually adding a third-party solution as your company grows in size and demand. Businesses who specialise in both large and small operations can benefit from warehousing and online fulfilment services – however, there are clear signs for when it’s time to begin outsourcing your fulfilment.

We’ve identified three of the most common reasons for outsourcing fulfilment below:

Uneven Sales

Uneven sales can be one reason to outsource your fulfilment. If the number of orders you procure fluctuates throughout the year, you may think it doesn’t make sense to commit to running and staffing a warehouse. A third-party logistics company will be able to adapt to the needs of your business, able to deal with a sudden high volume of sales. We provide expert mail fulfilment services so that you don’t compromise your delivery promises – ensuring you can continue to deliver a consistent shipping experience for every customer.

You’re Too Busy

You may find that you’re far too busy needing to fulfil orders to even think about growth. This is a clear sign that it’s time to start outsourcing. As the CEO of a business, you need to be able to have time to spend on sales, marketing and expanding to other platforms. Outsourcing ensures that you have this time to expand – helping you stick around for the long run.

Positive Development & Growth

Growing geographically can lead to outgrowing your current infrastructure before you can adapt. Shipping nationally or globally can pose challenges that could bring your large-scale growth to a halt – such as an increase in expenses and shipping times. Outsourcing to a global shipping and fulfilment partner makes these challenges far more manageable, as they’ll be far better equipped to serve a growing demographic, leveraging multiple locations, and optimising fulfilment with order fulfilment services that can take the pressure off of you.

How to Choose the Best fulfilment Provider for You

We know you want a fulfilment service that suits the needs of you and your business, and because every fulfilment centre company is slightly different in how they operate, you’ll want to find one that best fits your company. When you start doing your research into the wealth of available fulfilment companies, you’ll want to choose one whose particular service niche suits that of your business.

Another good tip is to find a company that already works with businesses similar to yours as you’ll want a fulfilment company that has had experience in completing eCommerce orders similar to yours. It is important for fulfilment companies to have this experience as it shows what kind of company they are – are they able to fulfil your orders accurately and efficiently? Do they provide helpful strategic guidance and advice if you need it?

If a fulfilment centre has handled businesses such as yours before it will be equipped to aid you with any business challenges as it will understand your unique problems from experience.  As you pursue a partnership with these centres, these are all good questions to find answers to.
