Why choosing the right fulfillment service provider is important

Generally speaking, there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to fulfillment service providers. Different providers are suitable for different customers and projects. A comparison is therefore essential to find the right fulfillment partner.

Differences between service providers can be found in pricing, additional services offered and service quality. It is also important whether the fulfillment provider can demonstrate relevant industry experience.

The common process for finding a fulfillment service provider

Many retailers who operate an online store ask themselves the question: How do I find the right fulfillment service provider? 2-8 weeks until the first offer, at least 5 working days for research and phone calls, subsequent time-consuming visits and comparative analyses - the process of finding the right fulfillment provider is time-consuming. We have summarized all the steps for finding a suitable service provider for you here.

1. Make a list of all the service providers in question
2. Research their trustworthiness and quality

5. Wait for concrete offers and compare
6. Request and negotiate final contract

What are the problems and challenges of traditional search?

Inefficient communication

Many logistics companies are not yet embracing digital solutions and handle much of their communication over the phone. Their online presence often leaves a lot to be desired as well, which is why it is time-consuming to find out which fulfillment services the service provider offers.

Impossible price comparisons

Since the logistics industry in Germany is extremely decentralized and each logistics service provider operates individually, there are strong price differences. However, prices are difficult to see and must be requested individually. A price comparison is therefore associated with a lot of effort and research

Fluctuating service quality

The quality of the service can vary from provider to provider. In addition, there are many black sheep in the logistics industry. To be sure that you can trust your fulfillment provider, you should refer to customer reviews, but these are usually difficult or impossible to view.
