Benefits of outsourcing to a Third-Party Logistics (3PL) and Fulfilment system
Selling things is fun. Every time someone purchases something from your online shop you might feel a bit of a buzz, or get excited to start seeing the $$$ rolling in.
What’s not always fun is packing the orders, tracking them, dealing with returns, keeping stock organised and safe…. So why try and do it all yourself?
This is where a Third-Party Logistics (3PL) and Fulfilment service can be your knight in shining armour.
