Kitting, Light Assembly and Fulfillment Services for Online Businesses
Although kitting and fulfillment services are incredibly common in the e-commerce fulfillment industry, only some people outside of the industry are familiar with this practice. Still, these services are essential for managing an e-commerce business efficiently, just like warehousing and shipping services.
At Fulfyld, we offer optimized kitting and fulfillment services to help you put more merchandise on the market. Kitting also gives you a chance to expand your offer with special deals on sets and bundles.
Thanks to our experienced and knowledgeable team, you can track your inventory and fulfill your orders without buying expensive software. Plus, we provide warehouse space, so you never have to worry about stock issues due to a lack of storage.
As a result, your business will gain a competitive advantage, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your products are in good hands.
Kitting and assembly services and how your business can benefit
Kitting and assembly services involve arranging items that arrive as separate components into one unit before sending them to customers. The aim is to create stock sets that will be readily available to sell once the customer places an order.
Since these kitting groupings are pre-built in bulk during the assembly phase, kitting doesn’t make sense for all products from the company’s offering. This service will come in handy for products requiring assembly by the consumer and the creation of promotional sets or subscription boxes.
Consulting with Fulfyld can help you determine whether kitting is the way to go for your business. We will help you choose the best way to package your product to benefit your business and buyers.
Did you know? Some people use the terms kitting and bundling interchangeably. However, these two processes have distinct differences, which you can learn about here.
Custom kitting helps your e-business make better use of the items and equipment in its stock and saves time, money, and effort. In particular, this inventory management technique offers the following benefits:
How does the kitting and
assembly process work?
The kitting and assembly process usually takes place in fulfillment centers or a warehouse, where it’s known as warehouse kitting. This is an inventory-related task that includes several steps:
The manufacturer sends product components to the 3PL to store them in its warehouse.
The 3PL retrieves the kit components from the inventory and combines them to create kits as designated by the retailer. The staff completes kitting in bulk to streamline the process. They can also efficiently switch from one product line to another and save time during warehouse kitting.
3. Kit storage
Newly created kits are stored again in the warehouse until orders are placed.
4. Receiving an order
After receiving an order, the adequate number of kits gets retrieved from the warehouse and is prepared for shipping.
5. Scanning and labeling
Labeling and scanning the kit correctly is essential. This indicates that the kit is a single SKU with a separate list of items.
The 3PL can now ship the assembled kit to customers.
