Order Fulfillment Process: Step by Step

1. Deliver Items to Warehouse

Depending on which of our fulfillment centers is closest to you and your customers, you can ship your inventory to our warehouses in bulk. After receiving your products, we will store them in our warehouse, where they can be easily located, picked, and packed for your customer orders right away.

2.  Picking Items From
Online Order

When your customers place an online order, the details of that order are immediately routed to our fulfillment center through our SmartFill fulfillment management platform. It tells us exactly what items are included in the order so we can quickly locate the products in our warehouse, gather them, and carefully pack them.

3. Packing Items
Ordered Online

Our experienced ShipNetwork warehouse teams prepare each order for shipping by carefully packing every item using durable boxes, materials, and tape. Once the package is securely sealed, the shipping label is attached and scanned, and your inventory levels are updated.

4.  Shipping

With Xparcel, we will help you choose the shipping service that minimizes the transit time and shipping cost for you. Our carrier network then picks up the package for shipping and delivery to your customer. You and your customers can track orders through our eCommerce shipping partners, which include FirstMile, UPS, USPS, DHL and more.

5.  Returns

Even when orders are 100% accurate and delivered on time, there will still be a small percentage of returns from customers who decide they no longer need the product or find the item does not meet their particular needs. We offer complete return management services and the restocking of returned items to your inventory when appropriate.

3PL Services FAQs

What is subscription box fulfillment?

Subscription box fulfillment refers to the process of picking, packing, and shipping products from an eCommerce retailer to customers on a periodic and recurring basis. Some subscription boxes will have the same products in each package (dog food, diapers, or vitamins) or a curated selection of items that change (clothing, makeup, or baby toys). Many eCommerce companies choose to outsource to a 3PL for subscription box fulfillment to help simplify the process and take advantage of cost savings.

Can outsourcing my subscription box fulfillment lower my expenses?

The best subscription box fulfillment companies will lower your logistics expenses through automation, affordable shipping costs, and an established network of fulfillment centers. ShipNetwork offers all this and more, including our exclusive Xparcel products and unrivaled client support.

When is the right time to work with a subscription fulfillment center?

New subscription businesses often start with an in-house fulfillment operation, which works fine for smaller companies. For others, their subscriber base is simply too big to do all the prepping, packing, and shipping with the resources they have. In-house subscription box fulfillment costs can quickly get out of hand when demand is growing. If you’re running out of space for your products, struggling to keep up with packing and delivery, have substantial shipping costs, or are unable to compete with other subscription-based sellers, it’s time to partner with an experienced subscription box 3PL.

How do you manage monthly inventory changes?

ShipNetwork continuously optimizes fulfillment facilities for efficient utilization of space and operational productivity. Clients are charged a monthly product storage fee based on usage expressed in pallets. Our SmartFill fulfillment management platform integrates seamlessly with your eCommerce shopping cart, so your orders are automatically sent to our warehouses to start the fulfillment process. From there, the fulfillment process is the same—we quickly locate, pack, and ship the items directly to your customers.

Do you handle returns?

Yes, ShipNetwork can handle returns. Our in-house staff is trained to treat the transactions as if they were their own. We will either return the items to your inventory (if they pass strict quality control checks) or dispose of opened items as instructed. We ensure fast and easy return management services according to your return policies, so you don’t have to spend your valuable time handling this aspect of eCommerce subscription fulfillment.

Will your fulfillment technology integrate with my eCommerce platform?

Our SmartFill fulfillment management platform integrates with major eCommerce shopping carts, including Amazon, eBay, Shopify, Walmart Marketplace, Magento, and more. We also offer integration for customized platforms via our API. Our ShipNetwork team of onboarding specialists can explain the integration process and how we ensure a smooth and seamless launch. Contact us to learn more.

ShipNetwork is known for offering responsive support for our clients that goes beyond the box. We have service representatives based in the U.S., in-house warehouse liaisons to answer questions regarding inventory, packing, and shipping, and dedicated client success teams to help your business reach its full potential.

How do I choose the best fulfillment provider for my subscription box needs?

There are a lot of things to consider when choosing between several subscription fulfillment companies. Does the subscription box fulfillment company offer custom-branded packaging? How wide is their network of fulfillment centers, and are these locations close to your customers? Can they automate and streamline the process, freeing up your time to focus on business growth? You want to choose a fulfillment provider that can best meet the needs of your eCommerce subscription business.
