Effective Ecommerce Logistics and Reverse Logistics

While it is natural for an ecommerce business to focus effort in its online presence, delivering physical goods also needs to be taken seriously. Timeliness, accuracy, and cost-control are some of the challenges of ecommerce logistics.

Wholesaler Relationships
For succeeding in ecommerce it is important that you are comfortable on the sourcing front. Develop the right wholesaler network for your supply chain.

Third Party Logistics
Do you want to be an ecommerce success? First make sure that you have a website that works and a fulfillment process that delivers. For the latter, using a third party logistics provider might be a good idea.

Reverse Logistics
Reverse logistics involves getting goods back from the customer. Do you wonder why goods move in a seemingly reverse direction?

What Is Reverse Logistics?
Understanding reverse logistics is crucial for all ecommerce professionals. A successful reverse logistics program could be the tipping point between failure and success.

Ecommerce Fulfillment
Fulfillment can turn out to be quite the bad word in an ecommerce professional's vocabulary. But if done right, fulfillment can give the ecommerce business a much needed fillip.
