The eCommerce fulfilment supply chain embraces a wide range of activities ranging from systems integration, goods receipt, warehousing, pick and pack, personalization of orders, through to carriage and returns. This is one of the most critical areas of a retailer’s offering for customers and one that is too often neglected.
The core benefits of seeking to outsource e-fulfilment can include:
- Customer base growth without capital or infrastructure
- Reductions in shipping and freight charges through scale economies
- Reductions in warehouse and pick and pack costs
- Cash flow benefits through use of bonded warehouses
- More effective management of returns

Ocean and Airfreight Procurement
The ability and scale to negotiate the most cost-effective and efficient agreements with ocean freight providers and airlines is often overlooked when analyzing the eCommerce sector. These are important elements in the overall supply chain and require market knowledge and an extensive range of contacts and sector experience.
