Fulfilment House

"We’re a fulfilment house"

"You’re a what-now?"

When you’ve lost count of the number of times you’re asked exactly what it is that you do as a company, it’s probably time for a quick rundown.

What is a fulfilment house?

A fulfilment house, such as ourselves at JEM Marketing & Fulfilment Services Ltd, provide a third party service to handle the product side of your business for you. We will receive the goods either from yourselves or your supplier, store them, then package and dispatch them when an order is placed. We can also provide the services to process payment, build and host your website, as well as providing you with your own telephone line which our customer service department will answer with your own salutation.

Why use a fulfilment house?

Whether you are just setting up or have more orders than you can count, we can help take some of the pressure off. Managing a business, whatever the size, is time consuming. You will need to manage and store your stock (as well as the endless packaging), take and record orders, and pick, pack and dispatch those orders five days a week. You will, as a rule, also need to process the odd return and deal with customer complaints and couriers that don’t always end up when and where you’ve asked them to. A fulfilment house can manage all of these tasks for you, giving you the time to focus on – and ultimately grow – your business. If you’ve been thinking of taking on an employee to run the fulfilment side of things for you, we can help to cut these costs right down. If you opt for the expertise of a fulfilment house, you will not have to handle payroll or take care of worker benefits, which has a huge impact on your expenses (and let’s not mention the paperwork…)

What is pick, pack & despatch?

Everything that happens between the products arriving in our warehouse and your customer opening their door to receive them. When an order is processed our team will pick the item(s) from the shelf, wrap and package the order according to your instructions, then despatch it via Royal Mail or book a courier service. This can be seen right through to the very end, with any chasing of deliveries or receiving and processing of returns dealt with by us.

Whether you’re new to the game, have an established client-base , or you’re just looking to run a one-off promotion, we can help. Whatever the size of your business, we understand that it is yours, and we can provide a 100% bespoke service to give you the much needed time to focus on it. Please contact us and we’ll be more than happy to help, and you’re very welcome to visit us in Surrey.
