Pick and Pack – how does it work?
In the print industry, pick and pack fulfilment is the process of selecting and compiling multiple printed products into a specific package. These items are then shipped to the customer’s required destination. This process involves handling small to large quantities of products, selecting the appropriate products for each destination, and packaging them with a shipping label.
In order to create an effective and efficient shipping process, you would typically obtain competitive prices for shipping from both normal and expedited transport services. You would also want an effective Pick and Pack service that operates an effective warehouse management system to create optimal pick paths.
If you need to send printed materials to your clients on a daily or weekly basis, but don’t have the space or manpower to do it yourself, you should consider using a pick and pack fulfilment service. There are many benefits to using such a service, including freeing up valuable man hours for your business. But with so many fulfilment services to choose from, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. Here are some things to consider when making your decision:
Creating an efficient pick and pack process can be challenging. You need to make sure you have enough stock on hand, that it’s organised, and that you know exactly where everything is. Our online stock management system helps with this by giving us real-time updates on product counts and storage locations 24/7/365. Plus, it can be configured to automatically place restock orders when we reach minimum safe quantities.
Why You Would Want to Use a Pick and Pack Fulfilment Service
There are many reasons why you might want to use a pick and pack fulfilment service. Perhaps you run an online business and need someone to help with the packaging and shipping of your products. You may not have the time or resources to manage fulfilment yourself if you operate a brick-and-mortar store. Whatever the reason, using a pick and pack service can save you time, money, and hassle.
Here are just some of the benefits of using a pick and pack fulfilment service:
- You’ll save time on packing and shipping orders yourself.
- You won’t have to worry about keeping track of inventory levels or running out of stock – your fulfilment partner will take care of all that for you.
- Your customers will be happy with speedy, professional packaging & delivery.
- It’s more cost effective than doing it all yourself – especially if you don’t already have staff in place to do it.

Choosing a Pick and Pack Fulfilment Service
When choosing a pick and pack service for your business, it’s important to consider a few key factors. Our checklist below will help you choose a service that is right for you:
– How much volume do you need to process?
– What are your shipping deadlines?
– What is your budget?
– Do you need any special features or services, such as kitting or assembly?
By taking the time to consider these factors, you can be sure to choose a pick and pack service that will work well for your business.
Firstly, it’s important to understand what services each fulfilment provider offers. At the very least, they should provide basic pick, pack and shipping capabilities. However, depending on your business needs, you might need more than that. For example, do you need to ship different items together in a certain way? Can the service process return for you? If you ship internationally, you’ll need to make sure that the provider can handle international orders too. Define what your specific needs are and see how each fulfilment provider meets those needs.
When choosing a pick and pack service provider, be sure to ask about the support they offer. In the event of any problems with an order, who can you call to resolve the issue? You need to be able to fix any problems quickly. Having a dedicated account manager at the fulfilment centre helps ensure that you receive prompt answers and solutions. Make sure that customer support is a priority for the pick and pack service provider you choose.
When you work with an external shipping service, you need to be confident in how they communicate with you. Make sure to choose a service that provides shipping confirmation and tracking numbers. This type of communication will help you manage your business and give you the confidence that your items have arrived with the customer in a timely manner.
