What Is Drop Shipping?
Dropshipping is a system of transactional retail in which a retailer doesn’t own any inventory. There’s no customer service element or product handling. Instead, the drop shipper promotes a product and then buys the outcome from a manufacturer, wholesaler, or even another retailer ONLY when a retail purchase is made from them. The purchase is then shipped directly from the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer to the drop shipper’s customer, and the dropshipper never actually touches the product they sold. Dropshipping is NOT 3rd party fulfillment. Dropshipping is a low-cost entry strategy to get started in e-commerce, where the investment is essentially zero. Dorpshipping is NOT 3rd party fulfillment.
3rd Party Fulfillment
Dropshipping should not be confused with 3rd party fulfillment companies, like Amazon FBA, ShipBob, or others, which warehouse, inventory, pick, pack, and ship products for traditional online retailers who deal with large amounts of stock. 3rd party fulfillment centers are used when performing those duties in-house has become too time-consuming or more costly. There are dozens of 3rd party fulfillment companies 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.
