How do I know if my business is ready to use a 3PL?

Are You Ready for A Fulfilment Partner?
Here are ten questions to help you decide:
Are you looking to upscale your business? If you’re looking to expand your business, remember to factor in the extra responsibilities and resources associated with doing so. For most, E-commerce fulfillment is hardly one’s expertise – and if you want to grow, you have to realise you can’t do everything. Is your business rapidly growing? If your orders are in fact increasing exponentially and your small business is taking off, it may be time to consider a third-party logistics (3PL) provider. Having a fulfilment partner reduce your workload early on can also help you avoid you from quickly reaching capacity in the future. Do you find parts of order fulfillment tedious? If picking, packing and sending off orders have always been dreaded tasks for you, having a fulfillment partner is a no-brainer decision. By outsourcing your order fulfillment processes, you can concentrate more on what brings you the most joy and meaning in your business. Are logistic restrictions preventing you from giving your 100% to your business? By engaging in the use of a fulfillment partner such as Quickmail, you can have the weight of any E-commerce logistics processes lifted off your shoulders. Thereon, you can focus your efforts on other duties like managing your team, promoting your brand or refining your products. Do you have enough space to store your inventory? Having sufficient space for your inventory is non-negotiable. If you answered no to this question, then having a fulfilment partner is a wise idea! Are you willing to purchase or rent a warehouse? If the answer is again no, a 3PL provider is the solution you need. Purchasing or renting a warehouse to accommodate your inventory growth can be extremely costly. Let’s not forget the need for software, hardware and staff to operate the warehouse… With 3PL providers, however, this won’t be an issue! Do you prefer more control over all processes in your business? Granted, it’s understandable to be a control freak. If you’re finding it hard to let go, take some time to come to a conclusion. At the end of the day, you should do what makes you feel at ease. Would you be comfortable outsourcing fulfilment processes to a 3PL provider? If the answer is yes, you’re getting warmer! By opting for Quickmail’s 3PL services such as warehousing, transportation and distribution, you can rest assured that you’ll be leaving your business’ fulfillment logistics in the hands of the experts. Do the benefits of outsourcing to a 3PL provider outweigh potential cons? Sometimes, the benefits outweigh the cons – and for good reason. Ultimately, if having peace of mind, less stress and additional time sound appealing to you, then getting a fulfilment partner is definitely the next step!
