The boom of e-commerce has opened up the average consumer and store owner to a global marketplace. With that increase in your customer base and potential sales comes an increase in orders, logistics, warehouse needs, and organization. Whether you sell your products on Amazon, Etsy, eBay, or Shopify, you can trust Global Docks to be your e-commerce fulfillment partner.
Packaging Services You Can Depend On
Packaging and assembly services are crucial components of any e-commerce fulfillment warehouse. These services ensure products are packaged and assembled correctly before being shipped to customers. Efficient packaging and assembly services reduce shipping times, decrease shipping costs, and increase customer satisfaction. Packaging and assembly services include:
- Selecting the appropriate packaging materials
- Placing the products in packaging
- Properly sealing the package
Proper packaging is crucial for preventing damage during shipment and guaranteeing customers receive the pristine items they expect. At Global Docks, we use all proper packing materials, including:
- Bubble wrap
- Packing peanuts
- Packing tape
Assembly Services for Increased Efficiency
Assembly services are used to pre-build items or batches of products that often go together. This is another service that expedites the e-commerce fulfillment process. This bundling of products is often required for subscription box businesses, gift bundles for holidays and other special occasions, and introductory offers for new customers. Assembly services can be helpful when:
- You have multiple component pieces that are separate at inventory arrival and need to be assembled or put together
- You want us to prepare your inventory in a particular way for your customers
Timely and Efficient Order Processing from Global Docks
How does Global Docks ensure a swift packaging process for your items? After you send your goods to our Global Docks warehouse, they are entered into our proprietary warehouse management system (WMS).
Our WMS is linked with an application programming interface (API) to your online store. This way, when someone checks out, their cart is sent to us to ship. Integrating with your shopping cart allows us to process your orders as efficiently as possible. During this process, you have consistent live access to track your inventory in real-time.
We also use our high-volume shipping accounts to your advantage to get you the best FedEx, USPS, and UPS postage rates.
