What does product fulfilment mean?
Product fulfilment is the process of storing, picking and packing, and shipping products to consumers – and handling any returns. Our product fulfilment service works best for retailers that have:
Brands that are ready to scale
We help brands with proven products, established business models and growing sales get to the next level.
1,000+ orders per month
We ease the growing pains of brands that are already shipping – or are about to ship – 1,000+ orders per month.
We specialise in D2C eCommerce fulfilment, rather than traditional pallet-based storage and distribution.
Small, lightweight products
We’re optimised for fast-moving consumer products that are smaller than a football and lighter than a laptop.
Product fulfilment in its most basic form is the process of getting a product from the manufacturer to the customer. This can include shipping the product, handling returns and refunds, and dealing with any other customer service issues.
It’s important for a company to have a good fulfilment process in place so that they can get products to their customers in a timely manner and ensure that they’re happy with their purchase. A good fulfilment process also helps to reduce costs and minimize lost sales.
Fulfilling orders quickly and efficiently is essential for ensuring customer satisfaction. A company’s ability to meet customer demand is a major factor in determining its success or failure. Fulfilment centres must have the necessary resources to handle large volumes of orders while maintaining high levels of accuracy and quality control. Accurate and efficient product fulfilment will likely result in positive customer reviews and hopefully, repeat business.
The product fulfilment process is the set of operations and activities that need to be carried out to take a customer order and deliver the end product. It begins when an order is placed, and ends when the customer receives the product and is satisfied with it. In between, there are a number of steps that must be completed in order to ensure accuracy, quality, and customer satisfaction.
The first step is to receive the customer order. This can be done online, over the phone, or in person. Once the order is received, it must be entered into the system so that it can be processed. Many fulfilment providers have dedicated software to help manage these orders. After that, the products must be picked from inventory and prepared for shipping. This may involve packing them into boxes or assembling them if they are larger items. Then, they are shipped out to their final destinations. Once the customer has received their products, customer queries and returns management may also require attention as the final stage of the fulfilment process.
eCommerce product fulfilment is the similar process of receiving, managing, and shipping orders for products, however, eCommerce refers exclusively to products purchased through a web-based storefront. eCommerce fulfilment providers offer a variety of services, including order management, warehousing, pick and pack, packing slips and labels, shipping options, and returns management.
When choosing a fulfilment provider, it’s important to consider the size and scope of your business. Providers will typically charge based on the volume of orders processed or the weight of products shipped. It’s also important to make sure that the provider you choose has experience shipping to your target market.
The steps are inventory management, storage, order picking and packing, shipping, delivery, customer service and returns.
To put this into more perspective; first, you need to source the product. This involves finding a supplier who can provide you with the product at a good price point. Once you have found a supplier, you will need to order the products and have them shipped to your warehouse or storage facility. Next, you will need to pick and pack the orders, which means preparing them for shipping by packaging them up correctly. Finally, you will need to ship the orders out to your customers. Depending on your shipping method, this could involve taking the orders to the post office, shipping them through a private carrier, or using a fulfilment service. James and James provide you with the tools to handle every aspect of this product fulfilment process from order and inventory management to customer service and returns, making us an ideal choice for your business.
