10 Secrets to Outsourcing Your e-Commerce Order Fulfillment helps e-Tail professionals understand how to select the right provider to get the most out of outsourced fulfillment for their business

LAS VEGAS, November 11, 2014- Rakuten Super Logistics U.S., a global leader in e-Commerce order fulfillment, today released an e-book for e-Commerce retailers titled 10 Secrets to Outsourcing Your e-Commerce Order Fulfillment. The e-book explains the ten critical factors that should be considered when evaluating potential e-Commerce fulfillment service providers. The information is designed to help eTailers understand how selecting the right fulfillment provider can increase customer satisfaction and accelerate the growth of their business.

“Most companies who outsource their order fulfillment do so because it’s not their core expertise,” said Joseph DiSorbo, CEO Rakuten Super Logistics U.S. “However, for an online seller, it’s a key part of their supply chain that needs to work seamlessly with their customer service and order transaction systems.”

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

  • An explanation of the importance of data integration and real-time inventory information
  • How to tell the difference between standard shipping and e-Commerce order fulfillment
  • The importance of warehouse locations, ownership and management strategies
