The first step in the 3PL process is receiving the inventory at a warehouse after being made. As soon as the stock has been received by one of our warehouses, it gets ready to go into storage.
When a customer places an order, the fulfilment part of 3PL begins. If your CMS is through Shopify or WooCommerce, our app ensures that orders are automatically passed through to the warehouse to be picked, ensuring a seamless, automatic process.
For non-mainstream platforms, orders can be uploaded by CSV/Excel spreadsheet.
As soon as the items have been picked by warehouse staff, it’s time for them to be packed! Honest FulPhilment allows for custom packaging, branding and inserts for your products.
The next step in the 3PL process is to ship your order to your customer, whether this is by land, air or sea.
We offer our shipping services direct to your customer and to businesses. Our tracking software integrates with your eCommerce platform to keep up to date with orders and their fulfilment.
One of the most daunting aspects of third party logistics (3PL) is the hidden charges and complicated pricing structures that companies offer.
It can be a challenge to get your head around the different fees for each individual service, such as unloading, loading, warehousing, storage, shelving etc. We believe that the pricing structure for 3PL should be more transparent.
That’s why Honest FulPhilment only has two fees for our 3PL service. A packing fee and a shipping cost. These 2 costs also apply to all of our 17 3PL warehouses around the world. Check out our pricing page for more details.
Finding suppliers in China can be exhausting and very time-consuming.
We recommend that you should only source directly from suppliers and manufacturers yourself if you’re an experienced importer with years of knowledge and experience in the industry.
With so many companies and sourcing agents, it’s essential to find a partner that can get your products to their destination with astonishing attention to detail. Without this, you run the risk of running into issue after issue with your supply chain.
