APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, is reacting to a study that reveals North American warehouses need to adopt smart technologies in order to enhance order management and improve customer service and overall productivity.
According to the U.S. and Canadian results of a major study, more and more companies are investing in warehouse technology. Fifty percent of those surveyed have or plan to implement a comprehensive, best-of-breed warehouse management system, while 75% expect to have one in place by 2020. Further, 40% of respondents noted that shorter delivery times are a key measure that needs serious attention.

“As a result of heightened customer expectations, warehouses need to invest to improve the accuracy of fulfillment, reduce out-of-stock rates, and improve delivery times,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “Warehouses can no longer be just a place where businesses store products; they need to evolve into smart hubs that enhance productivity and customer service. However, not every brand has the time or space to run its own warehouse.”
It’s important for brands looking to outsource their warehousing and fulfillment services to find a firm that already uses state-of-the-art inventory technology and real-time shipping solutions. Doing so will improve their operations, reduce expenses, and enhance brand loyalty and customer retention.
“Because APS Fulfillment, Inc. is located adjacent to all major land, air, and sea transportation hubs and uses state-of-the-art workflow processes, businesses that use APS Fulfillment, Inc. can have their products received, inventoried, and shipped in just two days,” Aultman concludes. “On top of that, APS Fulfillment Inc.’s real-time shipping solutions can connect to a retailer’s online shopping cart and receive orders as they occur, as opposed to being batched. This means orders are received the second they’ve been placed.”
