Why Automate Your Logistics & Fulfillment?
If you’re still handling your promotional product fulfillment and sourcing in-house, it might be time to consider a new system—one that saves you both time and money.
Third-party service providers that specialize in logistics know that there is, in fact, a method to the madness involved with storing and shipping items like promotional products. To be effective, these providers ensure they have it down to a science.
Here’s how a company like ours takes on logistics so you don’t have to.
Leave the Logistics to Us
Day-to-day operations occupy a huge chunk of your time. You know all too well the feeling of being crunched for time and scrambling to make sure transactions run smoothly. This is where a supply chain expert comes to the rescue with made-to-order shipping solutions. Let someone else do the hard work.
Using a third-party service accelerates the entire fulfillment process, from ordering to inventory to shipping, while also reducing the overall cost. A good provider can store, kit, ship and trace to anyone, anywhere, on a fully automated basis. It sounds almost too good to be true, so let’s break it down.
Reduce Your Operating Expenses
By keeping your products in a third-party warehouse while you’re waiting to share them with consumers, employees, or tradeshow attendees you will be able to cut down on storage and labor costs. When you run your own warehouse, all of the expenses—as well as any lost or damaged product—are your responsibility.
Through a third-party service, expenses are divided and paid for by the service’s customer base, significantly reducing your overall cost. Plus, there’s no need to rent a space or hire and train employees.
Made-to-Order Shipping Solutions
Kitting services are another beneficial resource that you can take advantage of when you outsource order fulfillment. When you work with professionals, you should have access to comprehensive and customized kitting services that provide specialized grouping and packaging of your merchandise to support your employee and customer initiatives. This gives you tailored, professional results that support your brand.
You shouldn’t have to worry about the nitty-gritty details of the shipping process. By teaming up with experienced service providers, you can have peace of mind that your customized fulfillment and freight solution covers everything from assembly to nation-wide shipping to package tracking, making it easy to achieve and monitor success. Plus, with PromoCentric, you’ll always have access to flexible, cost-effective freight solutions.
Benefit With a Trusted Partner
Outsourcing can lift a huge weight off of your shoulders. Not only will the process cost you less money in the long run, but you will also see an increase in efficiency and improvement in your results. Get back to building that brand and let a third-party tackle the logistics and your other challenges.
Remember: Made to order shipping solutions equals faster time to market, less order and inventory expenditures, and lower shipping costs.
