How to Master Outsourced Storage and Fulfillment
Business Pundit, February 7, 2011
If you sell goods to buyers over the Internet, the process of product storage, purchase by an end-buyer, packaging, labeling and finally shipping the product is called “order fulfillment“.
When outsourcing your needs to the “professionals” you can concentrate on marketing your product and growing your business. This is where outsourced order fulfillment services start to look compelling.
Strategically placing inventory closer to the end-buyer shortens the last leg of the parcel delivery by the carriers also known as “forward warehousing”; a real savings indeed.
