The following is an outline of drop shipping and the advantages it offers to your business.

 

Definition

Drop shipping is a supply chain process in which a seller ships its customers’ orders directly from the suppliers’ warehouse. Drop shipping is typically found in the e-commerce retail industry, like eBay, Amazon, and Shopify, where a third-party logistics (3PL) company like Jarrett is the intermediary.

 

Advantages of Drop Shipping

Drop shipping is designed to save time, money, and effort, which greatly reduces stress. From warehousing (i.e. — supply chain control) to logistics (i.e. — less-than-truckload (LTL), etc.), drop shipping gives you peace of mind your inventory will be managed properly and your orders will be filled quickly and accurately. 

 

There are many advantages to drop shipping, including:

  • Offering a wider variety of products by not carrying inventory
  • Quickly and efficiently processing and shipping your customer’s orders
  • Reducing overall capital requirements
  • Scaling your business quicker and easier
  • Providing convenience and ease of doing business
