In-House Fulfillment Strategies to Help You Scale Your E-commerce Operation
Everything You Need to Choose the Right Strategy for Your Operation
To say that order fulfillment is an important part of any modern e-commerce business would be an understatement. Order fulfillment is all about getting your product where it needs to be—in the hands of your customers—as cheaply, efficiently, and fast as possible, and that makes it an integral piece of the logistics puzzle. This is especially important for burgeoning e-commerce businesses who are beginning to expand.
Identifying the right distribution model now, while your operation is in its earlier stages, will allow you to build a supply and distribution chain that meets your current as well as your future projected needs.
