    3 Benefits of Adaptable eCommerce Fulfillment Technology

    Posted by Ian McCue on Mar 23, 2017 7:00:00 AM

    If you’re reading this post, you’re probably experiencing fulfillment challenges that are all-too-familiar to e-tailers. At the very least, you’re aware of them. There’s an unpredictability to the business – dramatic peaks and valleys in order volume, the need to quickly fulfill more single-line/single-unit orders and tight shipping windows (those last two are obviously tied together).

    The challenges inherent to online retail keep mounting because customer expectations are ever-increasing.

Warehouses for companies that own brick-and-mortar stores still do store replenishment, but they also must juggle broken-case store picking, drop shipping on behalf of other online retailers, direct-to-consumer orders and more. Even though fulfilling orders for eCommerce and traditional retail operations are very different tasks, they are often running side-by-side, in the same warehouse.
