My visit to J&J the fulfilment centre felt a bit like I was stepping into Thunderbird 2’s hangar, which is strangely appropriate, as they’ve gone on to become our International Rescue.

FAQs

There are a number of ways that a fulfilment provider helps you reduce shipping costs. Firstly, due to the volume of orders we ship, we get discounted rates from carrier partners, resulting in some extremely competitive prices for you. Furthermore, if you’re shipping into another territory (from the UK to US, for example), you can ship books in bulk overseas, rather than each time you make an order. This both reduces shipping costs and delivery times.

We refer to this as the ‘Goods In’ process, and it doesn’t take long at all. Once all the data for each SKU has been entered into our system, and ASNs are properly set up, you can check books into our fulfilment centres in just a few minutes. Once we’ve received your goods, it takes 72 hours for us to process them if they’re new SKUs, or 24 hours if we’ve seen them before.

If books aren’t packaged properly, they’re prone to creases and other forms of damage. We’d always recommend sturdy cardboard packaging for books.

This depends on the quantity and dimensions of the books we’re shipping. We have cardboard packaging options specifically designed for books, and if you ship over 1000 orders per month, you also qualify to use our custom packaging service, so you can instruct us to ship books in whatever packaging you’d like. Branded packaging is a great way to show off your brand and create unforgettable unboxing experiences.

Book fulfilment helps you to save money by optimising your operations. You’ll quickly realise that when you use a book fulfilment service to its full potential, you’ll end up paying less for postage, having less wastage and damaged products, less returns, higher sales, and more. As you grow, fulfilment services can end up paying for themselves.

A 3PL stands for a third party logistics provider, and it’s an industry term for companies that provide fulfilment and supply chain logistics support. A 3PL for book fulfilment will fulfil orders for you, send them to customers, and help you manage inventory, placement strategies, territorial expansion, and much more.

Book fulfilment services are provided by 3PLs like J&J Global Fulfilment. A book fulfilment service will store, pick, pack, and ship your products to your customers, and most of them will handle returns, too.
