Are You Ready For A Fulfilment Partner?

So, you’re running an eCommerce business and you are beginning to gain some traction in the market by growing rapidly. Congrats! That’s a huge achievement.

At Fulfilio, we love supporting growing businesses and to support you we have created a checklist to help you determine whether the timing is right to partner with a fulfilment provider – hopefully with someone just like us 😉

 

Checklist:

Your business is growing at a rapid rate

  • Sending more than 400 parcels per month

 

You haven’t taken a holiday in along time

  • You constantly wish you had more time
  • It feels like you are spending countless hours of your day time packing boxes, printing labels, getting ready for lodgement
  • You trek to the post office more than you’d like, or have a number of collection services coming to your office or home
  • The only way to take time off is to stop taking orders from customers.

 

Your overhead costs are increasing

  • You’re running out of space, and have to rent a new office, or warehouse
  • You want to start scaling your business, but find it difficult to respond to surges in volume
  • You’re considering hiring more and more employees to manage the day-to-day tasks of fulfilment
  • You want scalability and flexibility

 

Your returns are piling up

  • You are spending way too much time managing your returns process
  • You need to stand out from your competition
  • Customers are leaving negative feedback due to your awkward returns process

 

You need access to faster delivery

  • Because your main fulfilment location is located in just one city, or a rural location, you find that nationwide next day delivery is just too expensive, and same-day delivery simply not possible
    • But the demand for these delivery speeds is only increasing
  • You need to be able to compete with larger players in your category

 

You want to work on the business, not in it

  • You feel overwhelmed by growth rather than excited
  • You have strong demand for your products, but lack the time and the resources to understand where this growth is coming from.

 

If you have been able to identify with multiple items on this checklist, chances are you are more than ready to continue to grow your business by partnering with a fulfilment provider like Fulfilio. Now that you have this clarity feel free to reach out to one of our customer service representatives / or say that we will have someone call them?!
