Outsourced fulfilment, which is also referred to as 3PL, or Pick, Pack and Dispatch is where a fulfilment company stores your products in their warehouse and sends out your orders to customers as they come in.
This has grown extensively in the last few years, with more and more eCommerce businesses looking to better serve their customers by improving shipping times and customer experience. Most of our clients have been small, home based businesses that found they were struggling to keep up with demand, or simply wanted their house back as it should be.
"Until recently I kept all the sculptures in my 2-bedroom flat and packaged the orders as they came in. Although great conversational pieces for guests, the flip-flop zoo that lived in my living room soon grew out of hand and took up way too much space, as well as looking like a colour fairy had vomited all over my flat!" - Mark Dougal, Ocean Sole UK
By making the decision to outsource your fulfilment you'll be able to spend more valuable time on core aspects of your business and not have to worry about when or how your parcels will go out to your customers. Aspects such as sales, new product development and marketing can now go back up your priority list!
You'll also have your space back, whether this be your spare room or office there is nothing better than that decluttering feeling to help inspire creativity!
