Kitting 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.
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.
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.
