IS A 3PL BETTER THAN AMAZON FULFILLMENT?
Selling products on Amazon can be a tremendous opportunity to increase your order volume. However, it can be difficult to keep up with fulfillment on Amazon, and the profit margins with their system can be slim. That’s why many sellers are turning to third party logistics providers (3PLs) such as Seldat to ensure that orders are fulfilled in a timely, reliable and cost-effective manner.
Benefits Of Outsourcing Fulfillment
By trusting a 3PL with your fulfillment and distribution, you can give yourself more control over your supply chain. A sophisticated order management system (OMS) is a key component when working to enhance visibility. You can also use pick-to-light, and automated label application/manifesting.
Sensible, Scalable Solutions
Above all, a 3PL can accommodate the potential growth of your business while keeping your shipping costs low. They can deliver to most of the U.S. via ground service within days, and can also negotiate better rates with parcel and freight producers.
With a 3PL, you’re giving your customers the best delivery services available. Your logistics provider will treat your customers as if they were theirs, with dedicated associates to ensure your orders are fulfilled quickly and cost-effectively. Put simply, a great 3PL is an integral part of a great brand experience.
3PLs Make Happy Customers
If you’re looking for improved consistency in your shipping, choosing a 3PL is the way to go. By giving customers what they want, when they expect it, you can turn the single-purchase customer into a lifetime brand advocate.
