Hire a 3PL for Small Parcel Fulfillment

We’ve all heard the saying, “Time is money.” When it comes to small parcel shipping, we should also add, “and complexity is a headache.”

And that’s because it’s not just about moving parcels from point A to point B. It also means negotiating rates with multiple carriers, tracking shipments, processing returns, coordinating packaging, and handling all the intricate logistics. If you are not a logistics expert, small parcel fulfillment is more than enough to make your head spin. You want to see your business grow, and you know you can’t do that without also growing your operational capacity.

WSI helps businesses scale their supply chain to facilitate growth in both sales and their customers’ high expectations. Managing multiple vendor relationships across the manufacturing and distribution process can prove to be very valuable. It can also add yet another layer of management complexity. But, what if there was a way to simplify it all?

WSI offers integrated logistics services to streamline distribution, improve operational performance, and simplify every part of the entire small parcel fulfillment process.

What is Small Parcel Shipping?

Small parcel shipping is the complete process of sending individual packages that are relatively small in size and weight. While the precise definitions vary slightly among different carriers, the general rule of thumb is that any package weighing less than 70 pounds and measuring less than 108 inches in combined length and girth would qualify as a small parcel.

As a service, small parcel fulfillment happens to be more cost-effective and convenient than other shipping options. Instead of grappling with all the complexities, you get to leverage a logistics expert who understands the ins and outs of small parcel shipping.
