Fulfillment is the management of an outsourced order, fulfilled by a Third Party Logistics (3PL) distributor, to ensure accurate inventory levels and expedited shipment. The increasing trend of outsourcing order fulfillment continues to drive the fulfillment industry to offer more competitive, turn-key solutions. Full-service fulfillment companies, like Sam Dunn Enterprises, Inc., allow organizations to offer a higher level of customer service at a lower cost while freeing up time and resources for companies to focus on other fundamentals of their business.
Key business benefits include:
- Reduced Cost Per Order as a 3PL can often provide a lower cost per order when compared to internally managed operations, particularly for small-to-midsized companies.
- Lower Capital Investment since Third Party Logistics providers reduces the capital outlays for things like new warehouse and fulfillment facilities, order and warehouse management systems, and telephone and communication technologies.
- International Imports and Exports are more effectively received and shipped
- Total warehouse and inventory management system with inbound and outbound procedures backed by an office support staff
