Warehousing and storage for fast-moving consumer brands
Warehouse? Fulfilment centre? Fulfilment house? These terms are often used interchangeably, but can have different meanings to different people.
At James and James, we call our locations fulfilment centres. That’s because we specialise in eCommerce order fulfilment for fast-moving consumer brands. We don’t offer the long-term warehousing and storage that a traditional logistics provider or distribution centre might.
Here we explain the benefits of choosing us as your fulfilment warehouse, and how warehousing and storage fits within our wider order fulfilment process. Got any questions?
Always know where your stock is at
We use this barcode to track where each item is stored, and when it’s picked and packed for delivery.
You get full access to this data too, in real time, via ControlPort. So even though your stock isn’t in your own fulfilment warehouse, you always know where it is and how much you’ve got.
Only pay for the space you use
Depending on the size of your inventory and volume of orders, we offer two warehousing and storage options.
Small, fast-moving items go into pick storage, ready for speedy delivery. Because we measure the size of items during goods in, we only charge you for the exact space they take up. The more you sell, the less you pay.
If you have bigger items, a lot of inventory or occasional wholesale orders, we offer pallet storage too. This is charged at a low, fixed, weekly fee.
Never sell an out-of-date product
Best before dates and serial numbers are captured in our order fulfilment software, batches are segregated, and we use first-in, first-out (FIFO) fulfilment as standard.
You can also specify – and trace – which batches we use in which orders, so you should never sell – or have to destroy – an out-of-date product.
Couple this with our organic fulfilment warehouse certification and five-star hygiene rating, and we’re the perfect eCommerce warehouse for food, drink and supplements.
