What is Order Fulfillment?
In its most general sense, order fulfillment is how a company handles the orders of its customers, from product sales to delivery. An order fulfillment center, therefore, is a facility that specializes in this process. These centers are used by businesses of all types, but especially by e-commerce and others that have limited space, to outsource the logistics of order processing and delivery. Order fulfillment centers can dramatically increase the amount of business you do and ensure that all steps of the process are done professionally and efficiently.
How An Order Fulfillment Center Can Benefit You
Contracting with an order fulfillment center can save you time and money, allowing you to reinvest both into the growth of your business. First of all, an order fulfillment center optimizes your order processing process, meaning your customers receive their orders faster, which is very important in today’s competitive market. It also makes sure that your inventory is always properly sorted, labeled and packaged for you so that you do not have to worry about organizing inventory either. In fact, a quality order fulfillment company will have asset tracking software in place that you can log into and view in real-time the status of all your inventory and orders.
