How Our E-Commerce and Web Order Fulfillment Process Works

1. Order Processing

Order processing, specifically picking and packing, is a crucial step in the fulfillment process that ensures orders are accurate, well-packaged, and delivered to customers on time. After an order is received and verified, the fulfillment team springs into action by locating the items in the warehouse and gathering them for packaging. This process requires careful attention to detail to ensure that the correct items are picked and that they are in good condition before packing them securely to prevent damage during transit. 

By partnering with FMi’s experts in warehouse fulfillment services, businesses can benefit from our knowledge and experience in optimizing the picking and packing process. Our team streamlines operations by implementing best practices, utilizing technology to track inventory more efficiently, and training staff on proper packing techniques. By improving accuracy, reducing errors, and increasing efficiency in order processing, businesses can ultimately enhance the overall customer experience by delivering orders quickly and consistently meeting expectations. This not only leads to increased customer satisfaction but also helps build trust and loyalty with customers over time.

Picking the right team to pick orders makes all the difference. And when it comes to packing to perfection, FMi Logistics leads the pack.

2. Shipping and Tracking

Once an order is picked and packed, it enters the stage of shipping. This is where the fulfillment team hands off the packaged order to the shipping carrier for delivery to the customer. Whether it’s ground shipping, express shipping, or freight shipping, having reliable partnerships with carriers is essential in ensuring that orders are delivered on time and in good condition. When the order hits the road, our fulfillment team closely monitors each shipment to ensure that it arrives at the customer’s address promptly and without any issues.

Tracking the shipment allows the team to address any potential problems that may arise along the way. From delays in delivery or a package getting lost in transit, our innovative system in place tracks shipments closely to actively prevent these situations from occurring in the first place. This also helps maintain customer satisfaction by consistently keeping them in the loop on their order’s whereabouts. Efficient shipping practices are a deciding factor in the customer experience—and they play a huge role when a client decides to opt for repeat business or not.

3. Returns Processing

Our warehouse fulfillment services have got you covered every step of the way, including returns processing.

FMi Logistics ensures that customers have a smooth and hassle-free experience if they need to send items back. At the same time, we execute proper documentation to align with inventory and financial records. This way, the businesses we work with can accurately track returns and maintain the integrity of their operations.

6. Drayage (Ocean Container Chassis)

Have a shipment container that’s landing at the seaport? It takes special trailers to transport them safely by land to their destination. With our drayage or ocean container chassis trailers, you can rest assured that your cargo is carried seamlessly from the seaport to your desired location without any hiccups.
