Our Warehouse Services

 Sometimes all of the heavy lifting and packing involved in shipping products can make you feel like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. However, using a third party logistics (3PL) service provider to pack and ship your products for you can lighten your load. But what else can they help with? Here are some of the other services they can offer you to make your job easier and allow you to focus on what matters to your business.

Pick and Pack

Let the experts pick and pack for you. This involves processing products of any size and disassembling them to sort them into the appropriate packages to be shipped off to different cities. They will take care of everything for you and include the shipping labels and invoices.

Fulfillment

This is just what it sounds like – fulfilling an order by preparing it for delivery. The usual provisions of the third party logistics are storage and warehousing, order processing, pick and pack, shipment of product, returns and exchanges, call center, invoicing, and order administration.

Vendor Managed Inventory

What if a customer came into your store and ordered a product only to find out that you are out of stock, even at your warehouse? You can avoid this from ever happening again by teaming up with a third party logistics provider. Vendor managed inventory allows for communication between the supplier and the buyer, which in turn keeps the popular items in stock. Any changes in supply and demand are tracked by the vendor manager to always keep the company in style.

Cross-docking

An efficient mode of transportation, cross-docking means no un-packing required. Products shipped into the warehouse will go from one dock to the next dock and immediately outbound to its intended destination.  

The Apparel Group offers all of these services and more, found here on their website. Take a look to see if working with a third party logistics provider is right for you and your business.
