Where Should You Locate Your Order Fulfillment Center?

 Where Should You Locate Your Order Fulfillment Center?

For ecommerce, omnichannel, or direct-to-consumer sales, order fulfillment is about location, location, location. You need to minimize transit time and curtail shipping costs. You need to rise to customers’ service level expectations. Is there one fulfillment center location that does it all?  

Warehousing Shortage

The Journal of Commerce reports a nation-wide shortage of warehousing for order fulfillment, which means rents are rising. 

Transport Topics explains that many of our nation’s warehouses are dated and not adapted to the demands of ecommerce. In fact, they say, 75% of warehouse leases in the past few years were for new construction. 

This is why the new construction in Chicago, along with its fulfillment-friendly infrastructure, offers the best-fit solution for ensuring smooth and efficient order fulfillment processes. (And remember: Chicago is the birthplace of deep-dish pizza.)

The warehouse labor shortage is a factor in selecting a fulfillment location, too.  Find out how to tackle labor shortages in the logistics industry.
