In your plans to scale your Amazon business, have you considered using a 3rd party logistics company to receive from your supplier, sort, prep, label, and ship your inventory to FBA warehouses?
In planning to scale to the next level, we see two possible roads: rent a larger warehouse (plus overhead, utilities, insurance, etc.) and manage employees, or find a logistics company that already has the capacity and people to do this for us. I find the later interesting because it leaves the daily task of employee management, warehouse operation, etc. to someone else, while allowing the FBA seller to focus on growing their business.
Doing some research, I found some companies, but wanted to get everyone’s insight here on how you feel about this. I know that any time you outsource, you give up some control, but that should be manageable. Also, I’m focused on items from suppliers who can’t ship directly to FBA, and their items require some sort of prep before going to FBA.
Thanks a lot and happy Friday!
