Order Fulfillment Steps:
Here are the typical things that merchants or their fulfillment providers do once inventory is received at their warehouse:
- Count each item to ensure the actual number of items matches the number of items ordered from the supplier(s)
- Inspect the inventory to see if any items have been damaged
- Add SKUs to warehouse management software in order to keep track of the location, counts and number of sales of each of your items
- Apply SKU or bar code labels if they do not already have them
Once inventory has been received, counted, inspected, labeled, and added to your warehouse management software, it is time for it to be shelved.
Proper inventory storage is one of the most important aspects of maximizing the speed and accuracy of your order fulfillment operations.
So now your inventory has been inspected, sorted and placed on shelves in the warehouse. Next comes order processing.
After an order has been picked and packed, it is moved to a shipping station to prep it for delivery to the end customer.
When answering the question, “What is Order Fulfillment?,” it’s important not to forget about returns.
