Micro-Fulfillment refers to the use of small-scale warehouses for product fulfillment. Micro-Fulfillment centers (MFCs) can act as your company's primary warehouse or as an additional warehouse in your existing supply chain.
MFCs are often located in urban areas that are closer to your customer base. With less distance between the product and the customer, product fulfillment becomes faster, easier, and less expensive.
Micro-Fulfillment is for any business that wants to take full control of their brand while reducing costs and improving efficiency.
Investing in a large distribution center (DC) or a third-party logistics company (3PL) are not your only options. MFCs are smaller in size and still provide the efficiency and power of big-box fulfillment.
Micro-Fulfillment is right for you if any of the following apply:
Your existing space is full and you need a more organized operation
Your efficiency is suffering due to unorganized inventory
Your capital isn't enough to get you into a conventional DC or warehouse
You have a relatively small operation but are looking for speed and efficiency witout a full size DC
You are a larger company that wants the ability to fulfill at a more efficient and rapid rate
Micro-Fulfillment empowers you to fulfill orders faster, easier, and at a lower cost while maintaining control of your brand. It improves the experience for you and the customer.
Whether you are operating a small scale warehouse or large distribution center, micro-fulfillment strategies easily integrate into your existing system with the benefit of added automation to your fulfillment process. Save money, save time, and enjoy efficient fulfillment while using less space.
DO MICRO-FULFILLMENT CENTERS HAVE TO BE FULLY AUTOMATED?
No. In fact, MFCs that are not fully automated can be incredibly efficient while keeping your costs low. Many businesses can benefit more from a partially automated system than from a fully automated system.
