What is inventory warehousing?
Inventory warehousing is the process of storing inventory in one or more warehouses before they are ready to be picked, packed, and shipped.. Inventory warehouses safely and securely store inventory in an organized way to track where items are located, when they arrived, how long they have been there, and the quantity on hand.
Why is inventory warehousing important?
How you manage inventory in your warehouse influences how much you spend on logistics costs and how efficient your supply chain runs. There is so much more to inventory warehousing than you might expect, which is why many companies outsource inventory management to a tech-enabled third-party company like ShipBob.
How does inventory warehousing work
ShipBob is a 3PL that offers inventory warehousing services for fast-growing online brands. With ShipBob, you can store inventory in one or more of our fulfillment center locations and have full visibility into the inventory and order management process all from one single dashboard. Here is an overview of how our inventory warehousing services work:
Proprietary warehouse management system (WMS)
ShipBob’s fulfillment distribution network is powered by our proprietary WMS, which provides our merchants with visibility into the entire fulfillment process. From the ShipBob dashboard, you can search orders by tracking number, destination country, the number of items it contains, as well as get full transparency into performance such as fulfillment speed, orders fulfilled on time, error rates, and much more.
Optimized warehouse processes
With ShipBob, ecommerce business owners can spend less time and money on inbound and outbound logistics, knowing that inventory warehousing management is being taken care of. We provide the warehouse infrastructure needed, including worldwide locations, technology, and expertise. Once we receive your inventory, we follow standard processes to optimize storage to help save you on costs.
Advanced data and reporting
ShipBob’s analytics and reporting tool can help you make better inventory management decisions. By connecting our merchant dashboard to our WMS, we’re able to provide you with insights into fulfillment performance, how we’re hitting our SLAs, visibility into order status and inventory counts, and much more. You can track inventory movement in real time, including when inventory is being received, stowed or put away, picked, packed, and shipped with the carrier, which gives you full visibility into the entire process.
Have your own warehouse?
ShipBob has a best-in-class warehouse management system (WMS) for brands that have their own warehouse and need help managing inventory in real time, reducing picking, packing, and shipping errors, and scaling with ease.
