Historically when one thought of a 3PL, terms such as storage capacity, number of loading bays and freight services sprung to mind. Now, however the 3PL’s needs to match physical attributes with the equivalent level of competence and capability in its IT systems and processes.The WMS is the cornerstone of accurate order processing, pick, pack and despatch and will be visible at most points within the warehouse processes.
Shipping is boring. There, I’ve said it. At least maybe that’s what some people think? There’re just so many different options out there, fundamentally all trying to deliver to the same destination. However…… at Profulfilment we LOVE shipping! Part of my role at ProFS is to get the most cost effective, quickest and easiest shipping solution for our Clients. Given the wide range of requirements one size does not fit all.
I often ask myself why ecommerce businesses choose ProFS as their fulfilment partner, as anyone outsourcing their fulfilment is effectively handing over their baby.
