Warehousing made easy, reliable, and cost-effective
What is eCommerce warehousing?
The storing and managing of inventory waiting to be sold online is referred to as eCommerce warehousing. In some cases, the warehouses are owned by the eCommerce companies; however, in most cases, this function is outsourced or contracted to 3PL providers who manage the fulfilment function end-to-end for the eCommerce company. 3PL providers like Emiza are responsible for multiple warehousing operations, which include the following:
- Receiving and storing inventory in a predetermined format as soon as it arrives at the eCommerce warehouse.
- Ensuring that each unit of inventory's pallet, shelf, and bin locations has been stored optimally for easy access when needed.
- Ensure all health, safety and security protocols are adhered to with no deviation when it comes to the storage of inventory.
- Constant watch on availability of stock and turnover of inventory
- Regular recording of stock levels and reporting of inventory.
- Timely warehouse and inventory audits to ensure quality control and adherence to compliance.
- Ensuring that products are reordered well in time to prevent non-fulfilment of any order.
