What are Outsource Fulfillment?

Outsourcing order fulfillment is an innovative and efficient way to streamline your business operations. By engaging a third-party logistics (3PL) provider, you can trust that all components of your order fulfillment process—from inventory storage and packaging to shipping orders—are managed with the utmost care and reliability. With a 3PL partner, you’ll experience more than just a transactional service and gain a trusted business advisor who will help your business succeed.

What Services Do Third-Party Outsource Fulfillment Firms Provide?

Outsourcing fulfillment services to a third-party logistics (3PL) company can streamline your supply chain, minimise costs, and ensure your customers receive their orders quickly and reliably.

3PLs provide comprehensive fulfillment services, including kitting, customised packaging, and B2B fulfillment; powerful fulfillment technology, order/inventory management software, analytics, and real-time tracking tools; enhancing the customer experience; and ensuring orders are processed quickly and accurately.

So if you want to optimise your supply chain and keep your customers satisfied, outsourcing to a 3PL is an excellent way to get the fulfillment services you need.

Storage and Management

Our 3PL facilities offer more than just a warehousing matching platform; we provide a complete storage and management solution for your goods.

Order Picking

Once an order is placed on your website, it is necessary to use a pick list and retrieve the item(s) from their position in the 3PL’s warehouse.

Retrieval to Packing

Use the right box or polymailer, fill it with the necessary packing materials, put all the items in the order in the box, and put the mailing label on the box.

Smart Shipping

We’re setting up shipping carriers to pick up packages from 3PL’s locations and deliver them to customers, along with sending electronic order tracking information.

Processing of Returns

We streamline the return procedure and reintroduce unused products into your available inventory.

Best Way to Outsourced Order Fulfillment?

Not every 3PL will be the ideal fit for your company. Still, the proper 3PL should have the technology, infrastructure, support, and knowledge to help you expand your business, regardless of the stage or obstacles you face.

You will learn the most important questions to ask a possible 3PL and things to think about during your search, so you can feel confident that your business will find the right fulfilment partner.

Are you prepared to delegate fulfillment?

Are you prepared to utilize a Third-Party Logistics solution if the following criteria are met?

  • Every week (or day), I spend several hours packing boxes and shipping orders.
  • I no longer wish to fulfill orders myself (or when I launch my brand).
  • I’m running out of storage space for my product.
  • More time is required for strategic projects such as marketing and product development.
  • I’m not interested in investing in distribution infrastructure.

Determine Your Needs to Find the Best Fit

Finding the right 3PL can be daunting. Don’t be discouraged if some 3PLs can’t work with you. Every 3PL has qualifications like max SKUs, order minimums/volumes, prohibited materials, and capabilities.

Finding the right fit may require effort but can be worthwhile. When looking for an affordable 3PL, consider if fulfillment costs fit your budget. You may need to reach a volume before the price is feasible. You can also save long-term with bundles, higher-priced products, and spending minimums for free shipping.

Prepare for the questions that a 3PL will ask you

Prepare for your 3PL discussion by having answers ready for these questions:

  • Product dimensions and weights
  • Current monthly order volume
  • Marketing projections, product launches, PR campaigns
  • Markets you plan to enter or expand into
  • Customer zip codes to determine ideal fulfillment location(s).

Also be prepared to share:

  • Total number of SKUs
  • Technologies used like your ecommerce platform
  • Average order value

Other questions 3PLs may ask are to help maximize sales, reduce costs, and optimize your supply chain. Being prepared with this information will make the process smoother.

Evaluate 3PL providers and make the right choice

When comparing 3PL providers, create a scorecard to evaluate services, technology, warehouse locations, and pricing.

Remember, the cheapest option isn’t always the best value. Compare pricing for the same services – what’s included at that price point? Consider which services are most important and how much support each provider offers. This will allow you to make an informed decision and find the right 3PL partner for your business.

Integrate Your Sales Channels and Distribute Merchandise

Once you’ve decided, go through the onboarding process and criteria to start. An installation team can help you set up an account, integrate your store (and other sales channels), set up delivery options, and import all of your products. Ensuring adherence to the 3PL’s specific procedures is essential regarding stocking and shipping inventory.

Advantages of Using an Outsource Fulfillment

Running an e-commerce business can be a daunting task, especially regarding order fulfillment. That’s why it’s often better to outsource retail order fulfillment to a third-party logistics partner. Here are some of the key benefits you can expect to reap:

Lower Operational Costs

You don’t have to worry about keeping track, purchasing packing materials, or managing a warehouse.

Increased Scalability

You can focus on the most important aspects of your business while still scaling quickly.


Leverage the 3PL’s expertise and volume to ensure you get the best value for your money.

Strategic Regional Footprint

With multiple fulfillment centers, you can gain a strategic regional presence.

Advanced Technology and Analytics

Utilize the most advanced technology and analytics available to help your business grow.
