In the current digital era, where online shopping and fast delivery are starting to become the norm, brands have to gear up for e-commerce in all aspects of their operation. Having an efficient online portal is definitely on top of the list but the next point in the checklist is reviewing your warehousing capabilities.

This guide speaks to companies in the following situations:

  1. Your Company/Brand manages their own warehouse.
  2. Your Company/Brand uses a 3PL Partner.
  3. Your company/brand is new and currently analyzing logistics options.

Situation A – Brands with Own Warehouse

In the old days, brands that wanted to have complete control of their operation ran their own warehouses, but as logistics for e-commerce gets more technologically sophisticated, this option has become too complex with the need to invest heavily in IT resources.

In order to effectively process e-commerce orders, the fulfillment warehouse has to invest in the software and systems needed to comply with multiple vendors platforms, routing requests, and complex operations that if they are not performed correctly, can cost brands a fortune in chargebacks, penalties and suspended accounts.

The inability to invest in the needed technology to effectively run a busy e-commerce operation leave many companies closed to the e-market.

Situation B – Brands Using a 3PL

In this case, we have brands that have been running their business with the same 3PL for a while and got comfortable. I often hear phrases like “we’ve been working with the same 3PL for years and they are like family”, which gives me the hint that they've gotten comfortable and this is not always good for business. Many times brands adopt their 3PL limitations as their own, and close doors to opportunities because "we cannot work with drop-ship" or "we cannot work with any other system than EDI" etc. 

These brands need to start browsing and comparing what is been offered in the 3PL market and investigate if their current provider is up to the industry standards and able to fulfill your clients' requirements.

Situation C – New Brand

New brands have a difficult time when selecting providers because they are not aware of their future sales volume nor of the complex demands that their clients will have. Often times, new brands start small but their order volume can shoot up fast with a specific promotion or entering in a popular website and if your 3PL is not ready to process a high number of orders daily or to set up a drop-ship with your client then your growth is capped.  

Next are some points to help Operations Managers to evaluate a 3PL company:

  • Can your 3PL fulfill the high volume of orders you might receive from running an online promo within the timeframe allowed?
  • Can your 3PL send your online clients same day tracking numbers so the risk of cancel order decreases?
  • Can your 3PL offer you full traceability so you can fight back unfair penalties by e-tailers?
  • Can your 3PL fulfill complex wholesale orders that require dozens of routings within the same order?
  • Can your 3PL handle international shipping & process the taxes and duties?
  • Can your 3PL receive electronically all your orders on real time?                                   
  • Can your 3PL control the order's priority to avoid late fees?

We hope that this guide is of help to many! For further questions or if you need an excellent 3PL partner, contact AMERIWORLD FULFILLMENT SERVICES, we can provide an efficient high volume e-commerce and wholesale fulfillment for consumer goods brands.

After seeing so many big box retailers shut down several stores (if not all) in the past 18 months

(Payless, Toy R Us, Kmart, Unlimited, etc.) I can only wonder if our kids will be able to picture

what it felt like to go window shopping.

With over 6,000 stores closing down in 2017/18 and a multifaceted e-tailer such as Amazon growing on multiple directions, the digital era is taking more than one brand by surprise and those who don’t adapt get quickly swallowed. 

The problem is that adapting to E-Commerce is much more than just uploading product pictures on the web and start selling. E-Commerce entails a whole different marketing strategy, heighten customer service and a complete re-structuring of product logistics.

From a marketing point of view, in order to sell online, you need to get in front of the right people, not physically but where they browse – not a simple task as there are many different preferences between your potential customers and there are also many other brands after them. Instead of just opening a shop at a mall and waiting for your clients to go to you, now you have to chase them virtually.

Customer Service also plays a crucial part on client retention and future sales strategy. Online shopping is such a democratic shopping experience where all clients have equal access to the same stores, (unlike physical stores located strategically near those who can afford them) that consumers develop a very strong connection with the brands - for good or for bad. This is why Customer Service is extremely important for e-Commerce: an unhappy client can leave an unfavorable review and influence potential clients yet to come.

And from a warehousing perspective, the logistics of an ecommerce operation is much more sophisticated and accurate than the logistics for shipping bulk merchandise to stores. For internet orders, you can’t miss a deadline, send the wrong item or send items with near expiration date. Furthermore, you need to be able to receive and process returns, which are very common in online shopping. Retailers' old logistics partners that were able to ship boxes of merchandise with weeks of notice need a very heavy (and pricey) IT revamp and staff training in order to become a fully functioning and effective e-commerce product fulfillment warehouse with only 24 hours to ship orders.

For many brands, the three challenges mentioned above are the reason they are not succeeding in the US market. Below are some suggestions on how to tackle them:

  • To develop your online marketing strategy there are a few good inbound marketing agencies that specialize in the subject such as Riezen (Miami) or Full Funnel (Boston).
  • Customer Service is always better if it is managed by your own staff. However, if you decide to use a 3rd party for this service, it's always better to pick a local company, such as TeleDirect (Florida) who will make your clients feel more valued.
  • In the logistics arena, Ameriworld Logistics Services (Miami) specializes in pick and pack services and currently serves thousands of orders daily with impeccable e-tailers’ scores.

Promotion, Promotion, Promotion – that is the formula to selling a product in today’s Digital markets.

Now, once the product has been sold, what is the key to retaining those clients and acquiring more?

In order to turn first time clients into repeat sales, you need to make sure that your clients receive their purchased items as promised. Once you excel at customer satisfaction your client will turn into fans and they will do the promotion within their network for you so it’s a win-win deal: repeat clients and their friends.

After all the capital you have invested in merchandise and marketing, to either enter into big e-tailers or to acquire your own client base, ensuring that the orders are delivered timely is the last piece of the chain reaction.

Bad logistics can cost you clients or if selling on third party websites, you can be charged with penalties. At this point of the process you will learn to appreciate an efficient logistics partner.

At Ameriworld, we have the experience, technology and staff needed to fulfill online orders complying with the highest standards in the industry.

10 years ago, most of us thought that shoes were one of the few things you need to try on before you purchase it. Present reality has proved us wrong with online sales for the footwear industry skyrocketing on a one way trip.

Speaking with several online shoppers, we’ve put together a list of things you should consider when adventuring into the footwear e-tail world:

  1. Only shop from major websites, either those with a US store front or from the brands’ sites. Often times random sites offer great prices but they are coming from abroad and you never know when they will arrive as they don’t send tracking numbers.
  2. Read their reviews before purchasing: here you can find out what others thought of their quality, if they run small or big and how true to their pictures are their products.
  3. Read their return policy before ordering as some sites charge for returns or give you a very small window to send them back.
  4. Buy 2 pairs of the same model but in different sizes as you don’t know how their sizes run. It’s better to send one back but have one that fits than to send it back and have to wait for the replacement.
  5. Leave a review after you finish the process (in case there is a return wait to see how they comply). It’s good shopper’s karma!

Ameriworld Fulfillment Services specialized in drop-shipment for e-tail products so online shopping is kind of our specialty!

After an extremely active house decorating, food preparing and gift giving season,

comes the almost perfect but no quiet, the ended up not needing it and the it looked

different on the picture returns season.

               Delivery package received

Those of us in the logistics industry, understand that when it comes to building

(and maintaining) one’s reputation with the retailers, it’s as important to ship on time,

as it is to process returns on time. Consumers might be more patient with a

delivery that takes an extra day than they are with a return credit not back in their bank

account timely.

E-commerce returns need to be accounted for, the client needs to be credited with

their import, merchandise needs to be inspected and reconditioned if possible and the

inventory has to be updated. For all this, there has to be a system in place with the

technology to make it run smoothly.

This is why when choosing your fulfillment partner, make sure that they are equipped

with the technology, personnel and experience to handle your peak seasons in all their

phases.

Remember that (those retailers that we all want to be in, the ones where everyone shops,

the ones that everybody knows…) the big box retailers! have severe penalties and

chargebacks for suppliers that miss deadlines so how your returns are processed matter.

For experience and professional fulfillment don’t hesitate to contact

Ameriworld Fulfillment Services.
