Grow your Business with Simplified Kitting Processing

Kitting services refers to bundling multiple items into one unique SKU, to be treated as one shippable item. Products can be virtually kitted on your marketplace or warehouse management system (WMS) or physically kitted into prepackaged sets.

Distributed inventory

One warehouse isn’t always going to cut it when you need to get your products from point A to point B quicker and cheaper.

Our growing network of fulfillment center locations allows for efficient transport of inbound and outbound shipments through major ports and prompt delivery to customers in major metropolitan areas.

Benefits of Kitting and Assembly

Physically bundling products can reduce fulfillment costs and increase efficiency, by picking one kitted SKU vs multiple individual SKUs. This can also reduce human error in handling, as a kit with multiple items is already prepackaged, there is less room for error when picking the item.

One of the other benefits of kitting is that it can increase order value. Whether physical or virtual, kitting multiple items into a “set” or bundle can be a good way to showcase items that pair well, resulting in a higher value order or up-sell.


Depending on the needs of your business, our team will put together a plan for kitting and assembly that works for you. For more information, contact us to speak with a member of our fulfillment team.

3PL is an acronym for third-party logistics.

What is 3PL order fulfillment?

Order fulfillment services for eCommerce is every step that happens between a customer making an online purchase to receiving the delivery.

There are only so many products your team can pack and ship without sacrificing time and resources that could be better spent on business growth.

How do you manage inventory?

Although you won’t physically be in possession of your inventory while it’s in our fulfillment warehouse, you will still have complete access and transparency through our digital dashboard. This allows us to update inventory levels and inform you when products need to be replaced. All inventory is scanned at receiving and routinely monitored, so we have an accurate count and know exactly where everything is located.

Do you handle returns?
