What is a fulfilment service?
A fulfilment service covers the storage of products in a fulfilment centre or warehouse, the picking of products and the preparation for postage, and then the delivery and shipping of products to customers.
This takes the process away from the business owner and often occurs when manually shipping products has become too big an operation to be done without help or management by a third-party specialist. This also allows the business owner to focus on other priorities or on expanding the business.
