Have you ever considered outsourcing your pick, pack, and ship fulfillment? If so, you’re not alone. As companies grow, many find that they reach a point of “critical mass,” where they can no longer handle their customers’ diverse order needs in-house.
If you’ve hit this point, outsourcing your pick, pack, and ship fulfillment services to a third-party could be the best way to continue providing excellent customer service without overloading your in-house team.
In this blog, we’ll discuss the ins and outs of pick, pack, and ship, and the benefits of outsourcing these activities.
Let’s dive in.
What are Pick, Pack, and Ship Services?
The name says it all: pick, pack, and ship is the process of selecting the correct item, boxing the item, and shipping it to the customers who initiated the order. While this process may sound simple (and it is – at a relatively small scale), it can quickly become a detailed, complex issue as your company scales.
As a rule, pick, pack, and ship services start with kitting and sorting. A “kit” is a set of items that are usually sold together. To speed up the fulfillment process, most companies combine kits into a single container, box, or bag, and assign the entire parcel a single SKU.
At XoLogistic, kitting services are designed to promote accuracy, decrease overhead, and save you time and money. From there, items will pick, pack and ship seamlessly to ensure customer satisfaction and lightspeed fulfillment times.
Why Outsource Your Pick, Pack, and Ship Fulfillment Services?
There are a few major benefits to outsourcing your pick, pack, and ship duties. Here are a few of the biggest:
Faster order fulfillment
When orders start to pick up, it can be difficult to get them all out to customers in a timely manner. Fortunately, our pick, pack, and ship services can help. A 3PL like XoLogistic will fulfill even thousands of orders quickly and efficiently, so your goods reach your customers faster.
Outsourcing your pick, pack, and ship means you won’t need to purchase or rent a warehouse to store your inventory or hire additional staff to run your fulfillment operations. This, in turn, means greater cost savings for you and lower overhead for your company.
When you outsource your pick, pack, and ship services, it frees your company up to grow faster. An efficient and well established, large, functioning order fulfillment center handles your orders even if your company doubles, triples, or quadruples in size. If you tried to adjust on your own, on the other hand, it would be a clunky and difficult process.
Centralized shipping locations
When you outsource your pick, pack, and ship fulfillment services, it allows you to secure an ideal location for your product and inventory. An ideal location will help you save money on shipping and ensure faster shipping times, all while allowing you to reach new markets and expand your customer base.
