APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, is weighing in on why using a fulfillment center that is conveniently located near major transportation hubs this holiday season is essential for both customer satisfaction and corporate growth.
For many retailers, whether they operate a traditional brick-and-mortar store or have an online e-commerce presence, the holiday season is one of the most lucrative and stressful times of the year. For starters, the holiday shopping season can account for the majority of a brand’s annual revenue and profits. On the other hand, the season’s hectic schedule means that issues with order fulfillment can be more damaging than usual to a company’s bottom line.
“Shoppers love to get online deals, but more importantly, they want to know they’re going to receive what they ordered and to know it’s going to arrive on time,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “When it comes to a brand’s reputation, few things are as important as the speed and accuracy of order fulfillment.”
There are a large number of reasons why consumers get justifiably frustrated during the holiday season. According to a recent study, 95% of shoppers feel the biggest frustration is receiving the wrong product; followed by the late delivery of an order (93%). In fact, a whopping 89% of U.S. consumers say they will take their business elsewhere if an item is delivered late. In other words, slow and inaccurate fulfillment can cost a company a huge amount of its potential future business.
