3PL Fulfillment Services We Offer
Choosing whether to outsource logistics or manage it in-house is a critical decision for any business that sells goods, but especially e-commerce companies. Many aspects of logistics, such as storing inventory and coordinating deliveries, require expertise and are time- and resource-intensive. However, getting them right is crucial to the growth and success of a business.
This is where 3PL providers come in. A 3PL provider provides logistics services, taking on all or part of a business’s supply chain management tasks. A provider’s 3PL services may include:
- Inventory Management
- 3PL Pick and Pack Services
- Order Fulfillment
- Customer Service
At Warehousing Pro, we aim to be a one-stop solution to our clients’ logistics needs. We understand that many previously brick-and-mortar businesses have branched out to e-commerce. For these reasons, we provide 3PL e-commerce fulfillment services in addition to the ones typically offered by other 3PL companies.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between 3PL and fulfillment?
3PL or third-party logistics refers to outsourcing a business’s logistics to a third-party provider. What this means is that instead of managing tasks like inventory management and returns logistics in-house, you hire a company to do it for you.
Fulfillment is one of the many aspects of logistics. The goal of order fulfillment is to ensure the products your customer purchases from your store get to them on time and in excellent condition. To achieve this, a lot of hard work is done behind the scenes.
When a customer places an order with your business, it kicks off a complex series of processes, from receiving the order, picking and packing it, packaging it and sending it to the customer. It also involves tracking shipments and handling returns.
Many businesses outsource order fulfillment to a 3PL provider, as doing so saves them time and resources while ensuring a positive customer experience.
Is Amazon FBA a 3PL fulfillment company?
Not exactly. Amazon FBA’s solutions fall under the umbrella of 3PL e-commerce order fulfillment services, but the program is not a 3PL order fulfillment company.
The Amazon FBA program offers some of the services that a 3PL fulfillment provider offers, such as:
- Storing inventory in its distribution centers
- Picking and packing items
- Delivering items
- Managing returns
- Providing customer support
While many businesses find Amazon FBA convenient, there are also disadvantages.
- High Storage Fees: Storage with Amazon FBA can be more expensive than with a 3PL fulfillment services provider. Rates may also spike during the holidays.
- Lack of Packaging Customization: Amazon FBA ships in boxes branded with the Amazon name and logo. Custom packaging branded with your company’s name or even inserts or leaflets are not options with Amazon FBA. This can negatively impact your branding because the Amazon-branded boxes make it seem to customers that they’re buying directly from Amazon.
Many companies that want the convenience of Amazon FBA but want more control over the order fulfillment process choose to partner with a 3PL fulfillment services provider for Amazon FBA prep services. This option allows businesses to perform quality checks on their products and helps ensure they meet Amazon’s requirements.
However, e-commerce businesses may choose a 3PL provider instead of Amazon FBA for order fulfillment because FBA can be more expensive. Additionally, companies may have less control over their fulfillment operations with FBA.
Here are some other reasons why e-commerce businesses should consider choosing a 3PL order fulfillment provider instead of Amazon FBA:
- More Flexibility: 3PL companies offer a more comprehensive range of fulfillment services than FBA, and they can be more flexible. For example, we at Warehousing Pro are happy to take on special projects and don’t require long-term contracts. We also offer custom packaging and labeling solutions that reflect our clients’ branding.
- More Control: Businesses have more control over their fulfillment operations when they work with a 3PL company. For example, when you partner with us, you can negotiate the terms of your service agreement.
Better Customer Service: 3PL order fulfillment companies typically offer better customer service than FBA. This is because they are more focused on providing personalized service to their clients.
