Navigating the logistics landscape for your e-commerce business can be like deciphering a complex puzzle. But fear not! We’re here to help - let’s demystify the complexities of third-party logistics (3PL) with a spotlight on Amazon's 3PL services and Sitruna Logistics+. We'll explore how both services cater to the needs of businesses involved in Multi-Channel fulfilment.
For those new to the game, Amazon’s 3PL services handle the storage, packing, and shipping of your products, giving you more time to focus on growing your business. Multi-Channel Fulfilment (MCF) takes this a step further by seamlessly managing orders from various sales channels (like Shopify), ensuring a smooth and efficient process for businesses selling on different platforms.
Amazon's 3PL services are expansive, akin to a department store for all your logistical needs. However, the convenience comes at a cost, and the pricing structure may feel a bit like navigating a maze, blindfolded, while on fire. We’ve got you - below we’ve laid out the differences between Amazon and Sitruna fulfilment solutions:
Sitruna enters the ring as a more budget-friendly alternative. With competitive pricing and a commitment to reliable service, Sitruna aims to cater to businesses of all sizes, promising efficient handling of your inventory. Not only do we match Amazon’s competitive delivery timeframes, but we are able to offer cheaper fulfilment fees per unit. Amazon offers a flat fee per unit regardless of order size, whereas Sitruna can offer bulk discounting.
Amazon's 3PL fees might raise eyebrows, especially for businesses operating on thin profit margins. In contrast, Sitruna's pricing structure is designed to be more accessible without compromising on service quality. For businesses looking to optimise costs, Sitruna offers an appealing alternative. And don’t forget - we’re Sellers ourselves. We have developed the Sitruna Logistics offering from a Sellers’ viewpoint, addressing all of those crucial needs.
Choosing between Amazon 3PL and Sitruna Logistics boils down to your business priorities and budget constraints. If you're heavily invested in the Amazon ecosystem and prioritise convenience, Amazon 3PL may be a suitable choice. However, if cost-effectiveness and personalised service are paramount, Sitruna Logistics is the hidden gem you're looking for. As you weigh your options, consider the specific needs of your business and the benefits each service brings to the table. Happy fulfilling!
