Many brands consider expanding into DTC channels, but with only one fulfillment center, they struggle to achieve optimal delivery times in various areas. With profitability a top concern in fulfillment and delivery, how can you meet consumer demands to drive additional conversions?
Instituting multiple hyper-local fulfillment centers throughout the country reduces shipping costs while ensuring inventory reaches the end consumer in 1-2 days. However, direct fulfillment alone is not enough to secure conversions. As fulfillment leader Corey Apirian notes, DTC delivery is a holistic process involving integrating multiple delivery methods and partners to maximize accuracy. Larger items may require you to leverage 3PL companies, whereas compact items can be shipped using Seller Fulfilled Prime to deliver directly to domestic Prime customers.
In today’s edition of The Digital Deep Dive, Corey Apirian, the CEO of Davinci Micro Fulfillment, returns to chat with Aaron Conant about DTC fulfillment considerations for 2024. Corey explains the importance of transparency in communicating delivery times, why CPG brands should have a DTC presence, and inventory management strategies for profitability.
