Cosmetics Fulfilment: Meeting the Demand for Beauty eCommerce in 2023

Can your cosmetics brand keep up with your fulfilment demands?

The cosmetic industry and its associated fulfilment services are experiencing remarkable growth in the UK.

Despite the challenges posed by the cost-of-living crisis, consumer demand for cosmetics products continues to soar. Even in tough times, people crave a little indulgence, and instead of splurging on an entire outfit, they are opting for a lipstick or similar products as a rewarding treat. As a result, we are witnessing a surge of new cosmetics brands entering the online market, and eCommerce fulfilment has emerged as a convenient solution for outsourcing logistical operations. Additionally, fulfilment centres, like Diamond, offer competitive carrier rates specifically tailored for smaller consignments, ensuring seamless delivery to end consumers.

Quality Packaging and Wrapping

In the realm of cosmetic fulfilment, meticulous packaging and wrapping play a vital role. Not only does it enhance the unwrapping experience for clients, but it also ensures that the products arrive in pristine condition for immediate use. Selecting the appropriate carriers for different types of cosmetics is crucial. For high-end cosmetics, opting for a premium carrier with comprehensive insurance coverage is an excellent choice. Similarly, for more affordable items, our cost-effective and reliable carriers are the ideal fit. As a rule, if logistics costs exceed 10% of the item price, consumers may hesitate to include postage and packaging expenses.

Essential Warehouse Management

Managing logistics can be a complex task, particularly when dealing with a diverse range of SKUs (stock keeping units). Implementing a comprehensive warehouse management system is essential to track inventory accurately and ensure that only available goods are advertised across various marketplaces. By maintaining inventory integrity, you can deliver a seamless and satisfying customer experience.

Dedicated to the Environment

At Diamond, we go beyond the basics to cater to your specific packaging needs. Whether it’s crafting bespoke packaging that aligns with your brand or providing sturdy outer boxes to safeguard your products, we are committed to meeting your quality and values criteria. Sustainability is a core focus for us, and we strongly encourage our clients to opt for recyclable packaging. While some clients may have their preferences, consumers are increasingly conscious of the environment. Unsurprisingly, their repeat buying behaviour is influenced by packaging that is environmentally friendly. Embracing recycled or compostable packaging options is a winning strategy. You can find detailed environmental guidelines on our website.

Establish A Clear Fulfilment Process

A crucial step in the process is establishing a comprehensive service level agreement that includes client working instructions. This enables us to create a detailed, product-by-product guide that precisely outlines how you want items to be picked, packed, dispatched, and delivered. With our diverse range of delivery options, even if you need to transport a powder to Preston or eyelashes to Ecuador, we have the right solution. And who knows, if unicorns could lend a helping hoof in your business, joining the ranks of Stinson Van, success is just a message away.
