NewStream Fulfillment Center

Fulfillment centers allow companies to outsource their warehousing needs so that the burden of physical space to store inventory is reduced. This benefits companies that find themselves unable to manage their inventory themselves. In this partnership, a fulfillment company receives products from a seller, manages and stores the products, and ships them to the customer.

NewStream’s fulfillment services take care of your backend logistics so you can focus on hitting your sales growth objectives. Our fulfillment warehouse has the capability to process orders of any size while currently maintaining a 99.9% accuracy rate.

 

Order Fulfillment Solutions

Some of the most common inventory management problems businesses face are stockouts, overstocks, mispicks, and misships.

  • Stockouts refer to being out of stock and unable to meet order demand. This can lead to everything from poor customer reviews to loss of sales.
  • Overstock is the opposite and occurs when too much inventory is being held and not sold. This can be the result of mismanaged material flow or stock demand, and it reduces revenue for the company by tying up money in products that aren’t selling.  
  • A mispick happens when the wrong product for an order is chosen.
  • Misships result in the wrong items being sent to the customer.

In all of these instances, efficiency in the supply chain is compromised, money is lost, and customer confidence is diminished. These common inventory management issues can be eliminated by partnering with a fulfillment center that can leverage 30 years of experience in order fulfillment solutions to successfully manage inventory and coordinate shipments.

 

Fulfillment Costs

Order fulfillment providers often have order fulfillment fees that are associated with fulfillment services offered, including inventory receiving, inventory storage, item picking, packaging, and processing returns. Another fulfillment cost option is having an order fulfillment fee which covers the costs of all the services required to fulfill an order.

Another “cost” of inventory fulfillment services comes in the form of loss of sales and customer confidence when fulfillment is mismanaged. Partnering with NewStream and leveraging our affordable fulfillment services ensures that your inventory is being managed by industry experts who will take care of fulfillment needs so you can focus on growing your business.

If you’re wondering, “How much does fulfillment cost?” the answer is that each project will have different fees. However, you can get a better idea of what fulfillment services will cost by contacting our fulfillment experts.
