No fulfillment service provider is alike. Each one caters to different businesses. If you have a product that has special fulfillment requirements, you should find a vendor familiar with your field. Let’s say you sell glass figurines or high-end electronics. How the items are packaged and shipped is extremely important to your brand.

Before settling on a vendor, inquire about the types of customers they serve and how they handle their picking, packing, and shipping needs. Is the environment dust free if you’re selling computer parts? Are the items stored in a temperature-controlled warehouse if you’re selling perishable goods? How do they ensure fragile items make it to the customers in one piece? The fit should be good for both parties!
