Why Should I Outsource Product Shipping?

Many up and coming eCommerce retailers are faced with the simple yet challenging question; Should I outsource order fulfillment and product shipping?

While some companies are reluctant to “let go” of their inventory and trust a 3rd party with their precious goods, it is important to ask yourself the following questions.

  • Do I want to build a warehouse?
  • Do I want to manage warehouse workers?
  • Is my skill or expertise in shipping?
  • Do I have access to low shipping rates based on my current order volume?
  • Do I want to carry the overhead of a facility, workers, insurance, etc.?

If you have answered ‘no’ to some or all of these questions, you might want to consider the benefits of outsourcing your order fulfillment process!
