What is fulfilment

Fulfilment or Fullfilment (American spelling) is a another word for satisfaction or the process of fulfilling something, the word can be used in several different environments but in the scenario of our business we will assume it to mean the fulfilling of tasks on behalf of someone else.
Ecommerce fulfilment is the process of fulfilling tasks to do with selling and the processing of orders and product distribution, due to the costly nature of storing goods and the infrastructure behind distributing goods, these processes are often passed onto Third Party Logictics companies or 3PL's as they are generally known to be completed by a specialist expert in this field of warehousing.
As well as passing on the storage of goods the 3PL will also look after your orders, ensuring they are accurately delivered to the correct customer in a timely manner, these processes can be time consuming and expensive, by passing them on to a third party, business owners can concentrate their time on sales and marketing, produing more sales in the long run and with a professional fulfilment centre can produce a professional service all round.
