A drop shipping model allows your suppliers to pick and deliver stock directly to the consumer on your behalf. This model allows your business to expand its product range whilst avoiding the costs associated with warehousing and logistics.
Increase sales and flexibility
Drop shipping instantly allows you to extend your product catalogue enabling you to react quickly to changing market conditions, whilst avoiding the cost and risk of stocking these items locally. Combining this delivery model with electronic trading instantly increases potential sales whilst avoiding the associated administration.
Maintain consistent communication
Ensure your customers receive consistent branding and communication throughout the drop ship process by receiving carrier’s details, shipping and tracking reference information. With all this information automatically sent to your ERP, you can process drop ship orders just like any other delivery model.
Stay in control with instant updates
The drop ship functionality allows for full collaboration between you and your suppliers. As part of the standard process, suppliers will relay information about the fulfilment of orders and the associated timescales, general changes to prices or delivery times as well as updating new items and removing items that are no longer available.
Increase sales through online channels
Now you’ve extended your product catalogue with drop ship, why not expand to new markets using a Product Information Management (PIM) solution which distributes your products automatically to online marketplaces.
