Same day shipping – it’s all about consumer demand!

7 May, 2015

Same day shipping is king. And it applies to the host of e-commerce sites we visit every day, as well as the brick-and-mortar retailers who have a presence in every corner of the nation. In major cities across the country, same day shipping is commonplace and more and more, it’s becoming the norm, even in rural areas. When it comes to holiday shopping or special event shopping, consumer demand weighs heavily on retailers of all kinds.

Competition is intense in the marketplace, and today’s customer wants it all – convenience; fast turnaround times; and same-day (or next-day) delivery.  Increasingly, those customers also want free shipping. The fact is, same day shipping is known to increase BOTH volume AND frequency of purchases, and everyone wants a piece of the action. Industry experts agree that our culture of “instant everything” is dictating the changes that are taking place.

Many of the huge retailers have already joined the same day shipping revolution, some of them offering same day delivery for a fixed price, and some with next day delivery for free. Bottom line, millions and millions of products are being shipped out to customers, locally, nationally and internationally. And whether it’s about toys, electronics, household items, both e-commerce business and retailers are trying to keep up with consumer demand.

For businesses that are small or medium in size, keeping up with the demand for same day shipping is also becoming a priority. Many are without their own resources, and are hiring shipping and warehousing providers to provide logistics solutions to manage their goods from factory floor to the customer’s door. Links Warehousing & Fulfillment is one of these logistics providers, with a dedicated team of experts focused on productivity and efficiency.

The benefit of contracting a logistics provider has everything to do with established buying power, solid carrier relationships, and years of shipping experience. It’s an infrastructure that allows for the highest level of customer service and the best possible pricing. It’s very much like having a dedicated logistics team that does it all, including same day shipping that is responsive and immediate. Now, you don’t have to be a giant like Walmart.

In today’s business environment, shipping represents the main cost in getting product to customer. Here, the whole idea is to ship faster, more efficiently, and without delay. And here, Links Warehousing & Fulfillment has the capacity to manage and ship cost effectively, while accommodating a client’s “time-in-transit” requirements. Whether its bulk quantities or small packages, the most competitive rates are passed on to the client.

Same day shipping goes hand-in-hand with sophisticated warehousing and fulfillment.  And when it comes to the unique demands of today’s e-commerce enterprises, the team at Links Warehousing & Fulfillment understands the landscape. Same day shipping might involve direct-to-consumer or business-to-business transactions, but either way, it’s an enhanced warehouse management and fulfillment system that delivers the goods.

In every industry sector, same day shipping has become integral in maintaining sales and securing customer loyalty. And now, not everyone has to be Walmart or Sears to do the job right.
