To stay competitive and meet increasing consumer expectations for on-time and accurate deliveries, many retailers are tapping 3PL providers to augment their order fulfillment capabilities. These providers inherit many of the same market challenges faced by their retail customers. Succeeding in this competitive market space will require an accelerated transition to automation and digital technologies.

Zone Skipping Strategies to Reduce E-commerce Shipping Costs Zone Skipping Strategies to Reduce E-commerce Shipping Costs

E-commerce customers want orders delivered faster than ever, but paying extra for shipping is a deal breaker.

In fact, shoppers abandon orders online half the time due to unexpectedly high shipping costs.

An innovative sortation strategy called zone skipping can reduce shipping costs and boost both profitability and customer retention. Fulfillment centers can assume some of the sortation steps typically required of parcel carriers by taking advantage of latent capacity – offering big results:

  • Faster delivery
  • Reduced shipping cost (25-75 percent less per parcel)

See what zone skipping can do for your operation!
