Shipping challenges can be fixed by offering courier choices for customers, as well as, free shipping and fast delivery times to increase customer satisfaction.

How to Streamline Your Backend Operations

While your brick-and-mortar or online shopfront is the place where customers see you serving them, your entire supply chain is actually what drives your success. Meanwhile, your warehouse is usually where your team does the bulk of the work to meet your customers’ needs. It’s where you:

  • manage your inventory levels and order new inventory
  • receive new inventory from suppliers
  • hold inventory before it’s required for customer orders or store displays
  • pick, pack and ship your customer orders.

From that list, it’s easy to see that your warehouse operations play a critical role throughout your entire order fulfillment cycle. Learn more about how TradeGecko and other tools can streamline your backend operations and increase efficiency.
