How Does Pick And Pack Distribution Benefit My Business?

Pick and pack distribution using a dedicated professional warehouse is an increasingly popular option. Pick and pack provides a cost-effective, flexible, secure and efficient way of catering for the individual fulfillment needs of your businesses and your customers.

What is Pick and Pack Distribution?

Businesses electing to use a pick and pack distribution provider have their products shipped to a designated, shared warehouse. Items vary in size from very large amounts to small quantities, coming in full or half pallets, individual cases, or single items. These items are then stored.

When orders are received, the warehouse staff pulls items from their stored location, and then re-packages and distribute as per the customer’s requirements.

You may think that outsourcing pick and pack distribution is a service used only by large, successful organizations. In reality, the majority of pick and pack users are businesses with a smaller clientele base, or those just starting out.

It is Cost-Effective

Setting up a dedicated fulfillment centre is rarely economically feasible for smaller businesses, often causing a real drain on resources.

Outsourcing the pick and pack distribution requirements can prove to be an extremely cost-effective alternative. Since many businesses sharing the warehouse space, and the provider’s services, the costs are spread out among everyone. This translates into substantial savings.

Controlled Inventory

Large, dedicated fulfillment centres offer sophisticated stock management systems. This results in warehouse space that is well-thought out and organized. Staff can quickly pinpoint where the stock is and speed up the whole process from start to finish.

Fulfillment providers like FMi Logistics also use detailed inventory techniques to identifying when stock needs replenishing and notifying customers. You can minimize instances of low or depleted stock.

Provides an Efficient Service

The number one priority for any business is customer satisfaction. A happy, content customer is more likely to provide repeat business and sing their praises to others. It is imperative that customers not only receive the correct items but that they arrive quickly.

Outsourcing is often the best way to ensure customer satisfaction. Experienced staff can process your orders swiftly, and accurately. Care is also taken to ensure your orders are carefully handled, well packaged and clearly labelled. The staff is also adept at handling the demands of a sudden influx of orders, such as during the Christmas period.

Increased Peace of Mind

Outsourcing fulfillment needs means that there is one less thing for your business to worry about. Not only is your pick and pack distribution in the hands of experts, but the items are also stored within a secure environment. The warehouses generally incorporate high levels of security, and efficient stock monitoring systems. Pick and Pack allows your business to rest assured that their goods are being well taken care of.
