A Guide to Fulfillment Services

Is your e-commerce business facing logistic problems? You may need a fulfillment service. Powered by Fulfillment Inc. is a fulfillment company that offers all-rounded logistics outsourcing services to boost your existing warehouse capabilities. We provide storage, pick, pack and ship, preparation, drayage, kitting, and other services to make your logistics process easier and faster.



How a Fulfillment Service Works

A fulfillment service handles your customer orders. The process starts with a customer ordering online and is followed by you sending the order to us using email, excel sheet, or online invoice. We then find the product, package it, and dispatch it to the customer in good time and condition.



What Types of Fulfillment Solutions Does Powered By Fulfillment Inc. offer?


E-commerce Fulfillment

If you run an online store, this option is for you. We offer logistic solutions for Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) businesses. The e-commerce fulfillment process involves receiving and storing inventory, processing orders, receiving the items, packaging them in boxes (or any other suitable packaging solution), and dispatching the goods to the designated customer’s location.



Subscription Box Fulfillment

Unlike e-commerce fulfillment, our subscription box fulfillment services follow a predetermined pattern. This can be on a weekly, monthly, or even quarterly basis. Whether the subscription box should contain the same mix of products or an alternating assortment, we’ve got you covered. We offer timely and reliable shipping to make sure your customers receive their orders on time.



B2B Fulfillment

If you ship wholesale orders to other businesses, storage space and carrier options should be a priority for your business. We easily transport bulk and large shipments to recipient businesses, thanks to our spacious warehouses and flexible shopping solutions. 



FBA/WFS Processing Preparation

If you use Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) or Walmart Fulfillment Services (WFS), we can help. We will source, store, prepare, and send your orders to these respective fulfillment centers.


No matter what kind of business you run, you can take advantage of our multiple warehouse locations today and expand your customer reach and sales. Our pricing is transparent, and our storage is based on pallets and CuFt. 



When Does Your Business Need a Fulfillment Service? 

If you are unsure whether your store needs a fulfillment service, here are some signs to look out for:

  • You have outgrown your current storage solutions
  • You have fluctuating order volumes, making it hard to prepare enough labor and storage
  • Your team is struggling to deal with the day-to-day store operations
  • Your labor costs are increasing at a faster rate than your sales
  • Customers are returning orders at higher rates than before
  • You want to expand your store operations, but you need to minimize the costs


What Factors Should you Consider When Picking a Fulfillment Service?

  • Pricing

Costs are the core of business operations. Working with a costly fulfillment service beats the purpose of outsourcing. Consider the pricing model. Is it a flat rate, or do you prefer zone skipping? PBF offers significant discounts on your freight solutions. What better way to save on shipping costs? 


  • Ample storage

We receive the package and store your products for you. This enables you to focus on the core areas of your e-commerce business. We have a large distribution of warehouses, which is a plus if your customers are spread out. With our help, running your warehouse will become past tense.


  • Speed of Deliveries

A fulfillment service that can fulfill orders quickly is ideal. Modern online shoppers have very high expectations when it comes to timely deliveries. We have many strategically located warehouses, plus reliable fulfillment technology (software) to provide swift shipping. 


  • Expertise

Handling orders can be difficult if your team doesn’t have to resources for experienced logistics. Powered by Fulfillment has a team of well-trained and experienced logistics experts who understand different packaging options and how to handle different types of goods. 


  • Customization

You must make sure that your fulfillment service of choice can cater to your individual business needs. If your products have a short shelf life, are easily breakable, or need to be stored at specific temperatures, we can help. A customized fulfillment solution for different types of business is one of our anchor values at Powered by Fulfillment Inc. Whether you are a B2C, B2B, or D2C type of business, we’ve got you covered.
