Building an online storefront can be a cost effective method to connect customers with your product. Building the site is only half the battle; the other half is successfully transferring the goods sold to your customers quickly and effectively. In many cases committing to the huge capital investment of owning your own fulfillment center is unrealistic and unsustainable. E-commerce sales are a sensitive outlet because customers expect a high level of speed and accuracy. Often choosing to use a third party fulfillment center will aid your business to meet customer order needs while removing the need for huge capital investments. When selecting a fulfillment center to aid with E-commerce fulfillment quality assurance, speed and flexibility are paramount qualifications. A fulfillment center must be fully integrated with its e-commerce business customers for orders to be processed quickly and successfully. Accuracy and efficiency are two areas companies cannot afford to compromise. Using state of the art warehouse management software (WMS) in each fulfillment center allows for meticulous tracking and processing of each order. A third party fulfillment center aids customers to focus on their core competencies while saving money.
An area that is also overlooked is the flexibility of services that a fulfillment center may offer. A provider that is willing to offer value-added services, such as a product returns center, can really allow a customer to focus on their core business. A customer may not have the personnel or the time to run a returns function. A flexible fulfillment center can step in immediately to provide this capability, and give resources back to the customer. This adds value that is not easily measured by pure financial calculations.
A superior fulfillment center is flexible and will adapt to suit the needs of their customers. For many companies seeking a third party fulfillment center a tailored custom engagement is necessary. A strong relationship between a company and their third party fulfillment center is imperative for smooth order processing and fulfillment.
ISO 9001:2000 registration focuses on quality standards and continuous improvement in customer satisfaction through employee empowerment and measurement of key metrics. All of our facilities are food grade compliant with selected warehouses AIB (American Institute of Baking) & FDA (Food & Drug Administration) certified based on customer requirements.
Strategically choosing metrics to measure success is an important step in building a partnership and processes improvement. To fully understand the state of things a fulfillment center must use multiple metrics such as cost-per-touch, shipping accuracy, picking productivity in order to capture all aspects of the supply chain. The fulfillment center should also be accustomed to reviewing a customer’s account on a quarterly basis. This allows the supply chain to be more responsive to change, and in the end reduces the customer’s costs.
