The food and drink industry is booming with space for every kind of business. These companies do extremely well in the physical retail space, but with more consumer demand, many are joining the eCommerce landscape.
The flexibility of eCommerce allows a wide range of companies to set up shop in the digital world. Whether it’s a big-name supermarket or a specialised food store, any business owner can make their mark with eCommerce.
Nowadays, there’s special attention paid to food intolerances, specific diets, and organic and sustainable items. Juggling all these requirements can often be a hassle for many businesses. A dedicated food and drink fulfilment service can get your order out so you can focus on your business. Here’s how a third-party logistics company like Meteor Space can help you with food and drink fulfilment.
Nowadays, many consumers prefer shopping online, and groceries are no different. Currently, the online food and drinks market is valued at $185 billion and is expected to grow even bigger in the coming years.
Certain demographics like millennials and Gen Z also largely prefer getting their food and drink products online. With so much demand, businesses are setting up online retail stores to reach new customers and expand their business.
Some companies are partnering with dedicated food and drink fulfilment services to streamline their supply chain. In fulfilment, a 3PL takes care of all your inventory and maintains it for order processing.
Once an order is placed, pickers select the items and package them accordingly. With all the items collected, the orders are dispatched with reputable couriers so your customers can get them on time. Due to the perishable nature of food, special storage and carrier vehicles are used to ensure its freshness upon arrival.
Some companies can run into delays without a dedicated fulfilment partner, ultimately impacting the customer experience. With the right fulfilment company, you can leave order fulfilment to dedicated professionals while you focus on expanding your customer base.
