Third Party Fulfillment
What is third-party fulfillment?
Third-party logistics (3PL) is the process of outsourcing logistics services. This includes anything that involves one or more elements of business procurement and fulfillment activities, including storage and transportation of items around the world.
Third-party fulfillment mainly includes the following procedures:reception,storage,picking and transportation.
The first step of the 3PL process is to receive the inventory at the warehouse after manufacturing. Once one of our warehouses receives the stock, it is ready for storage.
In the next phase of the 3PL process, your inventory will be placed in one of our 3PL warehouses. Each inventory unit (SKU) has its own dedicated location in one of our warehouses. Our scalable solution means that there is enough space to expand with you.
When the customer places an order, the fulfillment part of the 3PL begins. If your CMS is through Shopify or WooCommerce, our application ensures that orders are automatically delivered to the warehouse for picking, ensuring a seamless automated process. For non-mainstream platforms, orders can be uploaded via a CSV / Excel spreadsheet. After the warehouse staff take up the items, it should pack! Honest FulPhilment allows custom packaging, branding, and inserts for your product.
The next step in the 3PL process is to deliver your order to your customers, whether by land, air or sea.We provide transportation services directly to your customers and businesses. Our tracking software integrates with your e-commerce platform to keep abreast of orders and their performance.
