According to Access, fulfilling orders quickly was the biggest challenge for 40 per cent of companies surveyed by the company for their white paper ‘Breaking the Fulfilment Speed Barrier.’ In this modern eCommerce-driven economy, speed and accuracy of the fulfilment process are crucial factors that can make suppliers stand out from the rest. Moreover, quick fulfilment of orders can influence buyer behaviour and in the end, win or lose business for suppliers and retailers.
Most consumers, especially those buying online, would expect Same Day or Next Day Delivery as standard. This expectation, along with suppliers becoming reticent to hold stock is likely to increase pressure on supply chains to log orders instantly and get customers’ purchases out the door within a matter of minutes.
To maintain a competitive edge in eCommerce, suppliers must be able to meet the demands of this fast-paced environment, while keeping supply chain costs low. Although quick fulfilment may seem like a concern for your warehouse, that couldn’t be further from the truth; speedy fulfilment relies on easy communication between supplier and retailer, as well as seamless integration between purchasing and enrolment systems. Successful supply chains rely on communication, collaboration and integration to get ahead in the industry.
