When your logistics partner follows retail routing guidelines, shipping is a smooth process. When they don’t, you incur compliance chargebacks and risk affecting more than your bottom line: it can also affect your company’s reputation.
If something is damaged or defective when it arrives to the retailer or customer, that can negatively affect the customer experience. Compliance issues can also delay the order if your logistics partner doesn’t ship the right quantity on time.
By reducing chargebacks on B2B order fulfillment, you can save money, keep your customers happy, and preserve your retail contracts.
Chargebacks Total Up
Chargebacks can be costly, with fees ranging from 5% to 20% of your entire shipment’s cost.
Some common order errors that add up include:
- Incorrect barcodes
- Not shipping or arriving on time
- Incorrect quantity
- Wrong item shipped
Too Many Chargebacks?
A client sought out FIDELITONE when their previous 3PL began incurring too many chargebacks. They were about to be dropped from shelves at a major national retailer.
They turned to FIDELITONE’s expertise and proven processes to drastically cut the number of chargebacks they incurred. Customers received correct products on time, the client saved money, and ultimately, they kept their retailer contract.
