Understanding eCommerce Fulfillment in Africa

Whenever anyone mentions online shopping, the thought of easy shopping by just scrolling and checking out makes it exciting.  With the increase in online shopping and the ease of purchase of goods from any part of the world, the eCommerce industry has seen a steady rise.  People can now shop from websites, microsites, and from Facebook and Instagram social media platforms. 

However, the challenge arises when it comes to shipping and delivery, and the not so glamorous part of warehousing and distribution.

Warehousing, distribution and delivery are the backbone of the eCommerce industry, and yet these are most overlooked channels in the fulfillment channel.

This essential service of warehousing and distribution is heavily relied upon by both buyer and seller.  It involves moving the products from the online shopping carts, to the final real world destinations. 

So, why are warehousing and courier services essential to your eCommerce business?

With a proper warehouse facility, your online sales deliveries are garaunteed to happen faster.  This is because when a shopper purchases goods online, they expect delivery to happen seamlessly in the duration you have specified on your website or social media page.  Warehousing makes home and office deliveries faster, efficient and undisruptive.

For many online and remote retailers, dealing with the challenges of storage and shipment is an area outside of their expertise.  This is where fulfillment centers come in, because warehousing requires space, staff, and technical expertise in handling and managing goods for transit. 

When this critical area of your business is not functioning at high speed and with efficiency, delays and damages are likely to happen and this can be detrimental to your business. 

No matter how amazing your products are or how remarkable your website is and no matter how much customers love your products, if your warehousing isn’t run by people who have the expertise and resources to handle your product, your eCommerce business can never reach its full potential.
