“”I have been working with the Fodafilment team for the past year and I couldn’t be happier with their service. As a brand needing both consumer and business orders processed domestically and internationally, I was struggling to keep up with the demand and manage our previous logistics partners.

Their team is responsive, efficient, and always goes above and beyond to ensure my customers are happy.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you explain the difference between eCommerce fulfilment and B2B fulfilment?

eCommerce fulfillment refers to the process of receiving, packaging, and delivering orders to customers who purchase goods online through a retail platform such as Amazon or a company’s own website. B2B (business-to-business) fulfillment, on the other hand, refers to the process of fulfilling orders placed by other businesses or organisations, rather than individual consumers. This can include larger quantities of products, custom packaging, and shipping to multiple locations. In summary, ecommerce fulfillment deals with end customers, while B2B fulfillment deals with other businesses as customers.

What are the main challenges of fulfilment for food, drinks & FMCG brands?

There are several challenges that food, drink & FMCG brands may face when it comes to fulfillment:

Stability. Many food, drink & FMCG products need to be stored and handled with care to maintain their quality and safety. Fodafilment have been doing this for 10 years.

Shelf Life & Batch Tracking. Many food, drink & FMCG products have an expiration date, which means that they need to be delivered to customers quickly and efficiently with traceability. The Fodafilment software is capable of handling this information.

Packaging, Kitting & Relabelling Requirements. Food, drink & FMCG products often have specific packaging, kitting and relabelling requirements that need to be met in order to comply with regulations, especially if you’re exporting. Fodafilment handle specific work orders to prepare your goods, wherever they are destined for.

Seasonal Demand. Some food, drink & FMCG products have high demand at certain times of the year which can put pressure on the supply chain. The Fodafilment team are extremely experienced in demand planning and handling increases in activity due to our extensive consumer and trade sales channels.

Inventory Management. Keeping accurate track of inventory and predicting demand for food, drink & FMCG products can be challenging due to the short shelf life and/or seasonality of the products. As your warehouse and fulfilment partner covering D2C & B2B, Fodafilment can be completely in tune with your needs.

Shipping Regulations. Shipping food, drink & FMCG products can be more complex due to regulations and restrictions on the transportation of perishable and/or sensitive goods. The Fodafilment team can advise you every step of the way as you break into new market segments.

What are the main stages of the fulfilment process?

The fulfillment process refers to the steps involved in receiving, processing, and delivering orders to customers. The main stages of the fulfillment process typically include:

Order Receipt. This is the initial stage where orders are received from your online platform and sales channels or via CSV upload.

Inventory Check. The order is matched against the inventory levels and if the products are in stock, they are reserved for the customer. If the products are not in stock, the order will be placed on backorder until the stock is available.

Picking & Packing. Once the order has been processed and the inventory has been verified, the products are picked within the warehouse and packaged for shipping. This includes preparing the products for transport, such as wrapping fragile items and ensuring that they are properly labelled.

Shipping & Delivery. After the order has been packaged, it is shipped to the customer using the appropriate shipping method. This includes generating the shipping label, tracking the package, and providing the customer with a tracking number.

Returns. This stage is when a customer wants to return a product or there may be a delivery issue. The process of receiving the product back, checking its condition, reshipping and/or restocking is handled.

Customer Service. Throughout the entire process, customer service is an essential aspect. Any queries, complaints or issues need to be well handled to ensure a positive customer experience.

How can direct API integrations between eCommerce platforms and services platforms help reduce the manual workload?

Direct API integrations between eCommerce platforms and service platforms can help reduce manual workload by automating certain tasks and facilitating the exchange of data between the two systems. Fodafilment uses cloud-based warehouse and order management software, which means the vast majority of your order flow can be automated.

For example, if an eCommerce platform is integrated with a shipping service’s API, the shipping information for orders placed on the eCommerce platform can automatically be sent to the shipping service for processing, rather than having to manually enter the information into the shipping service’s platform or uploading a CSV data file. Additionally, inventory levels on the eCommerce platform can be automatically updated based on data received from the service platform, which can help prevent overselling. Overall, API integrations can save time and reduce the potential for human error by automating these types of tasks.
