Do You Understand What a SoCal Fulfillment Company Can Do for Your Business?
The terms “order fulfillment company” and “order fulfillment warehouses” are terms that are often used in our industry, but these are terms that are also often misunderstood or misused. The entire order fulfillment process starts as soon as your product is manufactured. Once a product is manufactured, it immediately enters the supply chain. For example, let’s pretend that you have a product that is manufactured in China. Your product is then shipped overseas to a fulfillment company like WSA Distributing in SoCal. Maybe your product is manufactured right here in the USA. Either way, it’s no problem for WSA!
Once your fulfillment company receives all of your orders, we then have to organize everything and prepare your orders for shipping to your customers. We will look at your different product SKUs, and we will apply bar codes. We’ll check for damaged products, and we will organize all of your different products as they come in with designated warehouse space and designated pick and pack stations for your goods. This step is basically for maintaining accuracy and quality, and we use state-of-the-art cloud-based software to eliminate mistakes during this step. As you will see, our cloud-based software technology is very dynamic and has many uses and benefits.
After receiving and organizing your products, WSA Distributing will store them in our warehouse. Every product is stored in a very detailed and organized manner, making it easy for our employees to get your products where they need to go when they need to go there. We use racks, bins, shelving, and even floor space to store orders as they await shipping.
Most of us have shopped and made purchases online at some point in our lives. Still, most of us – even those who are on the fulfillment and e-commerce side of it – don’t understand what goes into order fulfillment. The good news is that WSA Distributing is a SoCal fulfillment company that understands exactly what it takes to get your products to your customer’s doorstep, and you can rely on us to take care of all of your fulfillment needs!
How Does a Fulfillment Company Work?
An e-commerce order begins when your customer clicks the “Buy Now” button. Once they click buy now, all of the order information is immediately transferred over to the retailer’s OMS. The order management system contains product information, such as the SKU, the order quantity, and any auxiliary services, such as gift-wrapping or embroidery, that the customer has chosen for that order. Once the order management system has processed this information, it goes to the warehouse management system (WMS).
The WMS incorporates not only the order data but also warehouse-related data, such as the location of the item on the warehouse floor, the shipping charges, and the time in transit that it needs, for example, if the customer picked overnight shipping or standard ground delivery. This way, the warehouse staff knows how to properly pick and pack each order for the customer’s specifications.
Once the WMS has processed your order, the order will go out to the warehouse, where the pick staff will select the items for your order. Once they have picked all of the items for the order, it is transferred to your designated packing station. Here, an employee who has been trained specifically on your account will place your order inside of the boxes or packaging, along with any other promotional materials that you have selected. Gift-wrapping, embroidery, engraving, and other additional services can be added as well. During this step, our team will perform a secondary check to ensure quality.
After this step is complete, the order is ready for shipment. The order will be sent to the shipping dock, where it is then placed onto the appropriate shipping truck and is delivered to your customers’ doorstep. Imagine having to do all of this yourself! Well, there is no need!
Why Choose WSA Distributing?
Companies choose to outsource their fulfillment needs to WSA Distributing because our company is reliable, we have been around for a while, and we know our clients’ needs inside-out! WSA Distributing also has the technology that it takes to get things done for our clients, along with the facilities, equipment, employees, and packaging services that they need as well. WSA Distributing provides an unbeatable offer to clients who otherwise wouldn’t be able to get the services that we offer at a reasonable rate.
WSA Distributing’s accuracy rate is 99.9%. This near-perfect accuracy rate makes our error rate for every 1,000 orders less than one. With an accuracy rate like this, our error rate is virtually non-existent, and in the rare instance when a mistake is made, proper steps are taken to rectify the problem right away, and the client is immediately notified.
There are a couple of fundamental advantages that WSA Distributing has over other SoCal fulfillment centers. For one, our pricing is very affordable, and the reason it is so affordable is that we keep our costs down by doing everything on a larger scale and by cost-sharing.
Our clients appreciate that WSA Distributing is always honest. In fact, being honest with our clients in all things is one of the first things that our new employees are taught when they are hired to work for us. We never lie, hide, or withhold information from our clients, even if it makes us look bad. In our view, honesty and transparency always pay off! If we don’t divulge everything to the client, they are not going to trust us, and WSA Distributing wouldn’t be the best choice for SoCal fulfillment purposes. It is important to us that you stay on-board with our services, and doing that means doing all that we can to keep your confidence in us secure. These are just some of the many reasons why small, medium, and large businesses in SoCal partner with WSA Distributing.
WSA Distributing Does Things Differently
Outsourced order fulfillment is the process of sending your product to a fulfillment center like WSA Distributing. We will receive your goods and store them on a specific rack, or we will designate specific floor space where the products are stored on pallets, depending on the size of your products and the quantity of them. Then, we send your products to your customers as orders come in.
WSA Distributing does things a little differently than some of the other prominent SoCal fulfillment centers because we work with everyone from large online retailers to small SoCal businesses. The reason behind this is that WSA Distributing doesn’t have minimum billing or minimum storage, and we also work without long-term contracts. So, if you are with us, and for some reason, you are not happy within a few months, you have the ability to leave us. You are not bound to us by contract for the long-term if you don’t want to be.
WSA Distributing can easily scale up to accommodate a client who is doing a tremendous amount of shipping and needs lots of storage surfaces. WSA Distributing can also scale down as needed so that we can provide services to a client who does very little shipping and is looking for a storage partner. It’s the flexibility of the offer that plays a huge role in why people choose to make WSA Distributing their fulfillment partner.
How WSA Distributing’s Cloud-Based Fulfillment Software Can Help Your Business
WSA Distributing also has an online system that you can think of as a fulfillment control panel. Our cloud-based system allows our clients to integrate seamlessly with our pick, pack, and ship operations. The software and technology that we use at WSA Distributing is something that we have spent a lot of time and money developing, so it is highly customized to exactly what our customers need and exactly what the company needs, and because of that, it works very well.
As a WSA Distributing client, you will have the ability to log into your account at any time to check the status of your orders and tracking in real-time. Our state-of-the-art cloud-based software makes it possible. Also, your inventory is kept track of in real-time. As soon as your inventory hits our system, the item is held until the order goes out.
WSA Distributing is always here for our clients. So, there is no need to talk to someone outside of our company when it comes to log in or software issues. We know our software, and there is no need for us to talk to someone else outside of our company and wait to troubleshoot or fix a problem. We are able to make any changes or provide assistance as our clients have needs and do it very quickly. We can work directly with our clients to customize our software for whatever platform you use.
WSA Distributing’s clients appreciate having a SoCal fulfillment center that is able to create special projects for them, especially when they have a unique need that falls outside of what most fulfillment centers offer in their standard services packages, and again, it is our state-of-the-art software that makes it all possible. Indeed, it is a huge benefit for many of our clients who would otherwise have to hire IT people to set up on their end. This can be very difficult for a business as they may not be familiar with this aspect of technology. WSA Distributing offers very personalized fulfillment services that are customized according to the unique needs and goals of each client whom we work with.
