E-Business Intelligrated

E-Business Intelligrated present seven order fulfillment strategies to fast track your e-commerce business growth Chris Arnold Most e-commerce businesses start small, fulfilling daily orders using manual processes and handling growth by simply adding more staff, more shifts and more storage. This approach can work to a limited extent, but with increased success comes increased order volume, lines per order, complexity and the inevitable need to upgrade to a fulfillment facility with some level of automation. Chris Arnold, vice president, operations & solutions development, Intelligrated, USA By the time a growing e-commerce business is handling 3,000+ orders per day with 500+ SKUs (or less with bulky items that take a lot of warehouse space), a manual fulfillment operation can quickly reach a productivity plateau followed by diminishing returns due to higher labor costs, order/ inventory errors and the inability to get orders out the door on time, particularly during peak seasons. As a result, the handling cost per piece rises and erodes the operational efficiencies and cost savings expected with higher order volumes. In this white paper, we’ll share seven proven order fulfillment growth strategies plus some tips that can help you get your orders out the door more efficiently, accurately and cost-effectively as your business grows and seasonal demand occurs. 22 f+h Intralogistics 4/2014
