My Fulfillment Company, Premier Provider of Order Fulfillment Services for Online Retailers, Discusses the Impact of COVID-19 on the Fulfillment Industry
Industry: Shipping Services
My Fulfillment Company discusses the way the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the fulfillment industry overall.
Marietta, GA (PRUnderground) April 15th, 2020
With the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing in the United States and abroad, people are practicing social distancing to the best of their abilities. For many, this means limiting trips to their favorite big box stores, department stores, and even grocers. Retailers and carriers alike have seen a massive increase in online orders in the last couple of weeks as a direct result. The team at My Fulfillment Company, a premier provider of various warehousing and order fulfillment services based in Marietta, Georgia, sheds some light on the ways in which COVID-19 might affect the fulfillment industry.
Consumers are ordering basics – everything from toilet paper to medical supplies – from any online retailer with ample stock. Wine delivery services are also seeing a tremendous surge in orders, as well as companies like Boxed, which provides both food and everyday household goods. Typically, a sharp increase in sales is great news for an online retailer. It means the company is gaining momentum and is more likely to succeed in an increasingly competitive environment. Nevertheless, many of the world’s biggest online retailers are struggling to ship orders in time. In some cases, this is due to a lack of stock; in others, carriers like USPS, UPS, FedEx, and even DHL are behind in deliveries.
As early as mid-March, some retailers began warning consumers that their orders may be a little later than usual due to the unprecedented impact of the novel coronavirus. Overall, the time required for companies to fulfill orders has increased, but the team at My Fulfillment Company believes that with time, online retailers will compensate for the hefty volume increase and delays will be a thing of the past.
My Fulfillment Company offers numerous order fulfillment services that include warehousing, kitting and assembly, order reporting, shipping, and more. They believe such delays are inevitable in certain situations, such as when a manufacturer or vendor is unable to provide ample stock for warehouses, or when the postal carriers are so swamped with orders that they simply cannot pick up packages on time. Nevertheless, everyone in the supply chain – manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and even the United States Postal Service are all adjusting their operations to fulfill consumers’ needs. For My Fulfillment Company’s clients, there have been very few delays in shipping since the start, and the team says it will continue to adjust in a way that benefits their clients and consumers as a whole.
