Fulfillment Tips

Developing and distributing a new product can be daunting. To overcome obstacles related to new product distribution, it’s important to hit the ground running with a strategy that strengthens relationships with consumers and increases customer retention.

A third-party logistics (3PL) and fulfillment company can optimize new product distribution processes, including back-end strategies and fulfillment logistics.

5 Components of Successful New Product Distribution Strategies

Teaming up with an experienced third-party logistics and fulfillment partner is an important part of new product distribution. Look for a partner that can provide the resources to streamline distribution processes—packaging, order fulfillment, shipping, etc.—and enhance your brand’s productivity.

Your company’s fulfillment partner should offer a range of capabilities, including:

  1. Strategic Warehouse Locations – Same-day shipping is more easily achieved with strategically located warehouses. Work with a distribution and 3PL partner with a warehouse location that can provide same-day shipping and delivery to most U.S. customers within 1-3 business days via ground service.
  2. Accurate Order Fulfillment – Delivering orders undamaged and as-described is an integral part of building trust with your customers and executing a flawless new product distribution strategy. When distributing new products, partner with a distribution service that maintains order accuracy rates above 99 percent. Accurate order fulfillment ensures a satisfied customer base.
  3. Adaptable Processes – Your third-party logistics partner’s fulfillment and distribution processes should be adaptable to meet market demands during seasonal sales, promotions and events. When searching for a service partner, focus on providers that can demonstrate a peak as much as 30 times greater than your brand’s typical order volume.
  4. Real-Time Insights – Real-time insights into inventory, order status and warehouse service levels enables better supply chain management. To streamline your new product distribution strategy, narrow your search to distribution partners that provide your team with constant, up-to-date information using a range of real-time reporting mechanisms.
  5. Performance Monitoring – The best distribution service providers keep a close eye on brand performance through analytics like throughput, quality and supplier performance. Understanding key performance metrics enables you to quickly identify areas for improvement. The result is an optimized and improved supply chain.

The benefits of leveraging a robust strategy for new product distribution include:

  • Improved customer trust
  • Increased customer retention
  • Enhanced brand image
  • Streamlined back-end processes

[stm_service_info title=”Multi-Channel Fulfillment” image=”1766″]Many Multi-Channel Fulfillment companies talk a big game, but fail to deliver the benefits you expect from an experienced fulfillment or distribution provider. Speed, efficiency, cross-channel consistency – it all counts, and unless your brand is supported by robust multi-channel and omni-channel support capabilities, your ability to deliver a truly seamless customer experience will be compromised.[/stm_service_info]
[stm_service_info title=”Membership and Subscription” image=”1835″]eCommerce offerings have evolved from strictly one-off purchases to Membership & Subscription experiences in which customers receive merchandise on a regular, monthly basis. But while many eCommerce brands are eager to market continuity programs, relatively few are prepared to handle subscription-box fulfillment and the operational demands of membership-based eCommerce.[/stm_service_info]
[stm_service_info title=”Drop-Shipments” image=”1786″]Drop-shipping enables distributors to ship products directly to your customers, eliminating the need for in-house inventory management and order fulfillment. But too often, eCommerce providers are forced to give up visibility, control and other variables that ultimately impact the brand experience.[/stm_service_info]
