6 Benefits of Outsourcing Your Product Packaging and Order Fulfillment

6 Benefits of Outsourcing Your Product Packaging and Order Fulfillment

Whether you sell to other businesses or directly to the consumer, product packaging and order fulfillment are two of your most important business activities. Both have a major impact on customer satisfaction and your bottom line.

If you’re trying to streamline business processes and improve profitability, you owe it to yourself to seriously consider outsourcing. Here are six benefits your company could enjoy from outsourcing packaging and order fulfillment.

1. Cost Savings

Outsourcing can be cost-effective when compared to hiring and training in-house staff. Significant savings can also be realized through reduced inventory and equipment space requirements, bulk discounts on materials and supplies, reduced storage and shipping costs, and lower labor costs.

2. Expertise

Packaging and order fulfillment companies specialize in managing the entire process, from inventory, to component and product packaging, to receiving orders, to shipping products to customers. By outsourcing packaging and order fulfillment, your company can take advantage of their expertise and experience.

3. Increased Efficiency

Outsourcing packaging and order fulfillment can help streamline the supply chain, increase overall efficiency, and improve quality control. Packaging and order fulfillment providers have established systems and processes in place and often have advanced capabilities like automated sorting, optical scanning, in-line printing, and high-speed packaging systems. When you outsource, you get the benefits without the corresponding capital expenditures.

4. Flexibility

Outsourcing packaging and order fulfillment can give your company greater flexibility in meeting changing demand or production needs. A packaging and fulfillment provider can quickly ramp up or down to meet changing requirements or surges, maintaining customer satisfaction without requiring additional investment in equipment or staffing. And, when business returns to normal you won’t have to deal with excess equipment, inventory, and staff.

5. Improved Quality

A packaging and fulfillment provider can help improve quality and customer satisfaction. Quality assurance checks can be performed as part of the packaging process. Inventory management ensures that outages don’t delay order processing. Communication between the provider, customer, and your company help prevent unexpected surprises.

6. Focus

Although packaging and order fulfillment are critically important processes, they can usually be outsourced successfully, reducing problems and increasing profitability. Outsourcing also frees up resources, allowing you to focus on core business activities such as product development, marketing, and customer service.
