6 Signs You Need to Upgrade Your Order Fulfillment

Order fulfillment is part of running a retail business. You want your customers to receive your quality products in a timely manner. If you find yourself consistently frustrated with your current order fulfillment company, then it’s time to consider finding a reliable alternative. Here are a few signs you need to upgrade your order fulfillment service:



1. Never on Time

If you have found that your products are being consistently shipped late from your warehouse, it might be time to consider finding a new order fulfillment service. Time is money, and if you promised a certain timeframe to your customers, you want to make sure that that specific timeframe is being met.


At Powered by Fulfillment, we prioritize your products to make sure they are leaving the warehouse in a timely manner. We generate shipping labels for you and have a daily pickup so nothing falls behind. Here are some of the shipping carriers we work with:


  • UPS
  • USPS
  • FedEx
  • DHL
  • Ascendia


We also work with freight and overseas forwarders.


Because we are able to automate our system, we can map your shipping preferences so that you don’t have to individually select your shipping preferences each time an order is placed. We want your shipping experience to be easy to control, on time, and personalized.



2. Too Expensive

If you are using a fulfillment center that charges you an arm and a leg for their services, it may be time for an upgrade. You shouldn’t have to worry about hidden fees and additional charges for services rendered. Our company wants to make sure you are getting the best service possible for your money. Our pricing is transparent and does not come with hidden costs or additional charges.


We are also able to provide you with discounted shipping rates because of the relationship we have with our carriers. You can give us a call to get an estimate of the total cost of our services. You can choose to receive weekly or bi-monthly invoices, and we can help you set up autopay so that you never have to worry about missing a payment.



3. Confusing Process

If your current fulfillment process is too confusing because you are having to work with several different companies just to get the job done, streamline your process with Powered by Fulfillment. Our company strives for simplicity in our fulfillment process. Powered by Fulfillment works to organize everything into one comprehensive package. We will hold your inventory at our warehouse, set up software that allows you to view your inventory at any time, then pack and ship your orders for you.


We also have our automated billing system set up so that you don’t have to worry about any human error with your invoice. Our company is easy to work with and provides everything you need in a fulfillment service.



4. Not Customized

Certain companies may charge the same amount for their services, regardless of how much space is being used or how many orders are sent out in a day. At Powered by Fulfillment, we want to make sure that your plan is customized to your needs. You shouldn’t have to be charged for any unnecessary amenities that you don’t use or need. We can scale your personal fulfillment plan based on your goals and requirements.



5. Not Enough Visibility

With our portal, you can see all the information you need in one place. You have access to inventory to see how much you have of certain products and which ones are selling the best. You are also able to be notified when you are running low on a certain item. The portal also allows you to run reports, one of which is the profit and loss (P&L) report. This report can help condense your revenue and expenses incurred over a certain period of time. We want your business to be able to succeed. These reports can help your visibility and potentially improve your ability to maximize your business decisions.



6. No Contact

When you are working with a fulfillment company that never returns your emails or you wait on their customer service line forever, this can be frustrating and potentially have a negative impact on your business. At Powered by Fulfillment, we strive to provide you with the best possible customer service. Contact us by email or give us a call so we can work with you to answer any questions or help assuage your concerns.
