Outsourced warehousing and third party logistics is ideal for growing businesses, says fulfilment specialists Go Fulfilment. Businesses, such as small and medium enterprises, need a streamlined system to take advantage of e-commerce activity and distribution.
In today's digital world, e-commerce is easily accessible and within the reach of most companies. A well-designed site and marketing campaign may drive sales but, the real test of any company is the delivery of products to consumers in a timely and efficient manner. Small businesses need to focus on how they can get the sold goods to the paying customer without causing a bottleneck in the process; outsourced warehousing is the ideal option. Start up businesses might lack the knowledge of logistics and transport which will cause the order flow to fall behind and unhappy customers.
Fulfilment warehouses, such as Go Fulfilment, can help these small businesses with order fulfilment ensuring that their order processes are seamless from the click of the mouse to the ring of the doorbell. Outsourcing the logistics, storage, transport and stock control allows the businesses to focus on developing the marketing of their products, which will inevitably lead to more sales and more shipping.
Brian Taylor, CEO of Go Fulfilment says, "For small and medium enterprises, outsourced warehousing is really the way to go. The businesses will have limited manpower and shipping knowledge, which can slow the order processes and lead to customer service nightmares. Fulfilment warehouses can sort out the process from initial order to pick and pack to delivery of goods."
Looking to outsourced warehousing for shipping needs is an effective business strategy for growing businesses. Fulfilment houses can provide their expertise in shipping to other countries saving the small businesses time in paperwork that accompanies customs and export of goods. This will also save the new business money in salaries for employees that might not be needed all of the time.
