Scalable Storage Solutions
Most businesses do not keep a full stock of merchandise all year long. Your storage needs may change throughout the year depending the demands of your audience. For instance, most retailers see a peak in sales at the end of the year because of the holiday season. You may need more storage in the last quarter and less storage in the early half of the year. Whatever the case may be, Overflo has the space and experience to accommodate your needs.
This is one of the main benefits of using a third party logistics provider instead of getting your own warehouse. If you have a warehouse for your business, you may end up paying for empty space you don’t need most of the year. the flip side, you could end up with more inventory than you actually have room for. Instead of going through that hassle, work with a 3PL provider to get the exact storage you need for every season.
Seasonal Changes in Order Fulfillment
Your order fulfillment needs will change just like your storage needs. You may stock your items a few months before they go sale, but you will need more people to fulfill those orders once your customers put them in. At Overflo, we hire seasonal workers shortly before the peak season so we have fully-trained pickers hand when the time comes. If you get a sudden rush of orders, we have a team to complete them for you.
By improving your order fulfillment to keep up with your seasonal demands, you will instantly increase your customer satisfaction levels. That means more business and happier customers, which will inevitably turn into higher profit margins.
You Only Pay for What You Need
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again. With third party logistics, you only pay for the warehouse space you actually need – nothing more. If you have a lull in business that cuts into your sales, you can scale back your storage to accommodate that. This is especially beneficial for new businesses that are not sure what their demands will be. If you do not have previous sales data to look back on, you may not know exactly how much room you need in a warehouse. Our logistics experts are here to help you figure that out, and we will make any adjustments necessary to keep your business running strong. Together, we can ensure success for your future.
