Drop shipping is a supply chain process used when a retailer doesn't house its own goods. Instead, they're housed by a manufacturer or wholesaler. The products are shipped to the retailer or its customers as needed.
Companies like Amazon and its seller network utilize drop shipping to fulfill online orders. In other words, Amazon acts as the third party fulfillment company. They're responsible for packaging, labeling and shipping products to the end customer.
Not just Amazon shipments are fulfilled in this manner. There are hundreds of fulfillment companies out there for retailers to choose from. FreightCenter can help arrange shipments for these fulfillment centers. We have the resources necessary to organize transportation for inbound and outbound inventory.
