With the 1,500% increase from 2017 to 2018 in E-Commerce , many retailers today are facing challenges regarding how to manage their warehouse operations. Whatever model is chosen, the two factors that are essential to a well run warehouse operation are order accuracy and on-time delivery. With many subscription based retailers offering a “cancel at any time” option both order accuracy and on-time delivery are essential pre-requisites to a successful E-Commerce operation.
Outsourcing order fulfillment to a 3rd party warehouse provider is of great value. It will help retailers and businesses avoid the labor and space requirements of managing a warehouse distribution center and will avoid the responsibility of managing order processing on a day-to-day basis. 3PL’s today have advanced warehouse management programs that can support the multitude of warehouse supply requirements and also enable customers to see first-hand a status of their specific warehouse inventory.
The other option to consider is for retailers to manage their own warehouse and order processing operations. With the right software for warehouse management, retailers can easily establish automated processes and procedures that can ensure efficient pick, pack and shipping operations, establish high levels of order accuracy and can scale as business grows.
