Getting the Package to Customers: When — And If — to Outsource Fulfillment

SPEAKERS: Chase Purles, Chief Executive Officer, SweatBlock; Krish Iyer, ShipStation (Pre-conference workshop, NEW RECRUIT BOOT CAMP: TUESDAY, JUNE 5 – 2:30-3:15 p.m.)

Once online retailers reach a certain scale, outsourcing fulfillment becomes a key consideration if they are to stay competitive. Are the time and energy expended on do-it-yourself fulfillment saving resources or limiting growth? What about drop-shipping options, and how do you negotiate the best shipping arrangements with carriers? Using the real-life experience of an online retailer, our speakers will examine the costs and charges that make up fulfillment, at what point in a e-retailer’s growth it should consider outsourcing fulfillment and tips on evaluating and negotiating with fulfillment services providers and carriers.

5. Attend the Cocktail Receptions

IRCE hosts two cocktail receptions to provide plenty of opportunities to connect with exhibitors and fellow attendees. Come by the Refund Retriever booth (1829) at The Welcome Reception on Tuesday evening and/or the Cocktail Reception held on Wednesday to play our hook and ring game and win a shirt!
