Rakuten Super Logistics U.S., a global leader in e-Commerce order fulfillment, today released an e-book for e-Commerce retailers titled 5 Signs It’s Time to Outsource Your Fulfillment and Shipping. The e-book identifies and explains five e-Commerce fulfillment warning signs that businesses should never ignore. The information is designed to help eTailers understand the symptoms and potential problems associated with fulfillment stress and strain, and demonstrate how the right fulfillment provider can relieve these pressure points and improve many areas of their business.

“Today, almost anyone can start a successful online business as long as they have a good product, commitment, and vision,” said Joseph DiSorbo, CEO Rakuten Super Logistics U.S. “However, once an online seller reaches as certain volume, logistics is an area where they commonly fail with devastating results. The right logistics provider can help these businesses continue to grow and scale rapidly.”

A few of the valuable topics covered in the e-book include:

  • How outsourcing fulfillment can give business managers and staff back more of life’s most precious commodity: TIME
  • The importance of being able to quickly and easily scale your business when you outsource to the right fulfillment provider
  • How a fulfillment provider with multiple locations can deliver cost and shipping time savings that can help e-Commerce businesses compete with any store online
