Ecommerce fulfillment- An Overview

Ecommerce fulfillment is taking on growing significance due to the COVID 19 pandemic. While eCommerce has soared forward, fulfillment and other eCommerce related services are lagging far behind. That is why numerous retail and eCommerce firms are reevaluating their eCommerce fulfillment services, both for handling the increased volume and meeting desired standards for the consumer experience. Our website provides info about Ecommerce fulfillment.
Ecommerce fulfillment can be divided into two segments: primary warehousing and secondary warehousing. In primary warehousing, products are shipped directly from the manufacturer to the wholesaler or retailer who place the orders with the drop shipper. The orders typically are for specific quantities and have a high turnover rate. Secondary warehousing involves the storage of finished goods that have already been shipped from the manufacturers; however, they are not sold and thus are handled on a temporary basis.
Warehousing capabilities of eCommerce fulfillment centers should include a comprehensive range of facilities, including on-site or off-site loading and unloading, pick and pack options, transportation services, multi-way shipping, and cold storage facilities. Additionally, these facilities should also include advanced inventory tracking systems, so that manufacturers and retailers can see who has sold what, when and from where. These inventory management systems allow manufacturers and retailers to track and prioritize inventory across multiple locations-even if the company is operating across the globe. If an item isn’t sold on time from one location, it can be moved to the next location on the same server, which improves efficiency by eliminating the need to keep inventory traveling between facilities.
