Smaller E-Tailers Weigh Pros and Cons of Fulfillment by Amazon
SupplyChainBrain (March 1, 2021) – Amazon.com, Inc.’s nationwide network of giant fulfillment centers offers sellers an unmatched resource for processing and shipping e-commerce orders to buyers. But it’s not the only game in town.
Ruby Has has ambitious plans for growing its network of fulfillment centers across the country, even if they never approach the size and scale of Amazon’s dominant network. So the decision by a small or medium-sized e-tailer on whom to trust for providing efficient fulfillment — indeed, whether to outsource that crucial task at all — is neither easy nor automatic. Like every aspect of e-commerce, it’s a never-ending balancing act.
