What is Inventory Fulfilment within Fulfilment?
Learn more about inventory management and how outsourcing your order fulfilment needs can help your business grow.
For many businesses who sell products or manage manufactured goods, a key part of their supply chain process is inventory management. Inventory management is a warehouse operations process that involves the flow of the items from the manufacturer to another location or final customer. All inventory management processes start with the storage of a businesses products or items but in addition, includes the product sales order selection from the warehouse space, the packaging of the items through to the final delivery to another location or the end customer.
For fulfilment providers, this stock selection process of picking and packing includes rigorous auditing procedures such cycle counting and full stock management optimisation, to ensure that the business that has outsourced their fulfilment needs, is always informed of the volumes of their stock lines and revenue opportunities.
