How much does it cost to outsource eCommerce fulfilment?

Outsourcing logistics for scale up clients is a LOT more cost effective than having your own warehouse, pickers, packers, warehouse management system, operations managers, customer service agents and more. There’s also the cost of materials handling equipment to consider as you scale; from racking to loading doors to automation.

eCommerce fulfilment operators, which support multiple clients, have infrastructure in place which equates to economies of scale for its multiple clients. With outsourced eCommerce fulfilment, you simply pay per m2 for storage, a price per pick and pack, and a fee for the delivery.

outsource eCommerce fulfilmentThis can start from £2-3 a shipment. The factors that impact this are:

  • Type of goods
  • Destination
  • Delivery times
  • Carrier selections

It’s best to get a bespoke quotation based on your goods, your business aims and your customers, and we will help you match your expectations with the right carriers or couriers.

At Diamond we make sure that the carrier transporting your product is conducive to that product. We wouldn’t send a high value product through a non-tracked delivery service, for example. That isn’t the right journey for your customer. Also, we’re here to advise you, and we will.
