You need to offer a great product and website while ensuring that your customers are getting the best order fulfilment and shipping services.

How do 3PL companies work?
3PL companies work by helping you with the supply chain part of your business operations. A provider of 3PL in Brisbane and across Australia will be able to manage your 3PL supply chain from delivery to distribution and beyond efficiently and professionally. This is because for companies such as Invenco, 3PL fulfilment and logistics is our core business, and we have the networks, operations and know-how to ensure a smooth process. This works for you as a business owner because it helps exceed customer expectations and enables you to focus on more critical areas of business operations, such as developing and sourcing products, including creating great sales and marketing campaigns. Together, you and your 3PL logistics provider can help your business to expand and increase your revenue.
What are the different types of 3PL services?
There is a whole range of 3PL services that you can access if you work with a company providing 3PL in Brisbane or anywhere else in Australia.
The first thing that happens at a 3PL service is receiving, i.e., where we accept the arrival of your goods. As 3PL providers have large warehouses – ours is 5500m – they can receive shipments of any size from pallets to containers. Receiving also involves recording your goods, i.e. cataloguing, checking, barcoding and counting, so that we can manage them efficiently.
Next is the storage of your inventory. A 3PL warehouse owned by a provider of 3PL in Brisbane or elsewhere has the capacity to store a large amount of goods, so you can grow your business without the hassle of finding extra space. Invenco has a per-cubic-metre-per-day policy for storage which means that you are only paying for what you need when you need it. This provides you with the flexibility to increase or decrease stock according to demand and can keep the cost of storage down. At Invenco, storage means secure storage with 24/7 monitored CCTV, electronic gates with electronic key access, and a back-to-base alarm system at our state-of-the-art facility.
One of the most important factors to gain a competitive edge in eCommerce is the speed of order processing. Customers demand fast processing and shipping; that’s why at Invenco, part of our services for 3PL in Brisbane and across Australia is to offer solutions such as collation and sequencing of orders to match delivery timeframes. These steps are executed with exceptional management to address any challenges that may potentially delay an order.
Once the order has been processed, it’s essential to ensure that the customer order fulfilment is right every time. At Invenco, we use a barcode scan verification system in our fulfilment centre to ensure that the correct items are being sent to your customers. In addition, after we process your order, we pack it in quality materials designed to protect the goods and minimise shipping weight.
Customers need to be kept happy, and offering them varied options for shipping and providing a tracking feature on their delivery all contribute to that specialised customer experience. Our shipping logistics can help you control costs with shipping estimates, offer a range of options to your customers and track the delivery as the freight companies publish updates.
When your business is small, managing the inventory is much more simple. Still, as sales grow, inventory operations become more complex, and this is where a 3PL in Brisbane or elsewhere in Australia can continue to assist you. Invenco has a sophisticated inventory management network operating in real-time, providing essential inventory information and instant updates to keep you on track.
Although the goods have been sent out and customers are happy, services provided by a 3PL in Brisbane and across Australia don’t end there. It’s important that our customers are happy too. We offer excellent communication and access to a range of information to make you feel connected with your inventory. This means that even if you aren’t in the same location, you can still be on top of your stock. Finally, cross-docking and drop shipping can help you increase your sales and reduce costs by saving on storage and also expanding sales channels.
