Stop saying "Oh Ship!" These tips can help eCommerce businesses avoid detrimental shipping and order fulfillment failures.
Traditional warehousing companies are not good fits for modern online stores. Ask your potential fulfillment partner what kind of technology solution they used to manage your order fulfillment.
The ability to easily check your inventory, and the ability to set low inventory warnings, is something that can make your fulfillment experience smoother and easier.
Make sure you find out what kind of packaging materials your potential fulfillment provider uses in their warehouses, and if they will allow you to use a custom packaging material you provide.
The fulfillment company you choose should also have daily server backups in case of unexpected problems. This will serve as a store of information if your own server ever crashes.
It’s incredibly important to get a detailed list of all the services, features, and benefits that the fulfillment provider offers. There are often things that are not explicitly mentioned.
