Introducing Shiprocket Packaging – Smart Packaging for Quicker Fulfillment
Packaging is an integral part of the fulfillment chain. It impacts the entire supply chain and determines the speed at which you complete your first mile operations as packaging is largely manual and requires precision. But often, it is also the slowest process that setbacks your chain of events because it is largely manual and needs to be in sync with inventory management, warehouse management, and shipping.
Sometimes, it becomes difficult to keep a track of the packaging being used as it is a separate inventory of its own. Most eCommerce business owners face the brunt of delayed deliveries and poor shipping experience because they cannot provide optimal packaging or their shipments are delayed due to the time taken for arranging the right packaging material.
You also need to keep a check on the overall weight of your shipment, as most courier companies charge based on the volumetric weight that includes the weight of the packaging.
This makes it even more important to have a solid system in place for packaging.
There has to be a process in place that can help you streamline your fulfillment and maintain harmony between packaging, inventory, warehousing, and logistics. All these operations are carried out simultaneously and need to have complete synchronization in order to avoid confusion, roadblocks, and delays.
Most sellers purchase packaging material from several vendors. To make sure that the material is of good quality, you have to go to the store physically, conduct various quality checks, and then purchase the material. Usually, during transportation, the material can also get damaged and that can eventually lead to a faulty delivery to the customer.
Therefore, to make this process automated, simplified, and quick, Shiprocket brings to you a new feature with the name Shiprocket Packaging.
