Either option can support improved productivity, operations, and customer service but selecting the right one for your company takes careful examination. Considerations should include whether your company has a single distribution center or multiple, your company growth rate, steps needed to prepare your product for shipment, staff size and skill sets as well as available capital to invest in software and automation. With all of this in mind and more, the decision can be difficult to decipher. Join us for an in-depth look at the pros and cons of in-house fulfillment versus using an experienced 3PL and learn what you need to know to make the right decision for growing and making your operation more productive.
