There are some pretty compelling reasons to be a drop ship vendor for one of the big (or small) retailers or e-tailers. Things like the potential to have better margins, the ability to be nimble and react quickly to market demand, and a revenue steam that isn’t dependent upon just a few retail sales channels.
Unfortunately, there is also a dark side to all of this goodness so if you could do any of the following would it be helpful?
- Cut your order processing time by 90%
- Cut your order processing cost by 80%
- Increase daily warehouse shipments by 25% – 50% per day
- Send accurate Item Inventory to all of your retail sales channels when they want it
Let’s face it, from an order processing perspective you’re now processing small parcels by the hundreds or even thousands each month, the cost to process an order hasn’t changed but is now multiplied by all of those small parcel orders, the increase in orders has caused EDI costs to skyrocket, and you’re finding yourself in more overselling, underselling or chargeback situations with your retailers because it’s so hard to accurately represent your inventory to them in a timely manner.
This is costing you money because as the number of orders increase, so does your order processing cost. You can’t seem to get ahead of the curve.
From a warehouse management perspective you are now picking, packing and shipping an enormous number of smaller parcels, your customers are expecting their orders to be shipped and delivered in as little as 24 hours and they want to see real-time order confirmation and package tracking information.
This is losing you revenue because your warehouse is a bottleneck and can’t keep up with the demand.
