Tips to remember before locating fulfillment
1.Physical Store Reach versus Fulfillment Reach
The truth is, you don't have to "set up shop" to sell into Canada. And no, this doesn't mean fulfilling every customer order from the US or elsewhere which can render international retailers uncompetitive.
2.Warehousing and Order Fulfillment – Pick Pack and Ship Orders with a 3PL Partner
This can be an interim "proof of concept" for a small but growing retailer-distributor to test the market without committing a lot of capital to pursue Canadian market development. Brand building can begin without setting foot in the country in many cases.
3.Key Canadian Product Distribution Hubs – Mississauga / Toronto Canada
The largest couriers in Canada – UPS, FedEx, and Purolator courier all have Greater Toronto Area distribution hubs.
Finding the right partner to undertake your warehousing and fulfillment -picking, packing, and shipping your customer orders – is key to successful execution.
Now maybe the time to start mapping out your future growth plans and expand into Canada with a partner who can help you navigate the logistics of it.
