Direct to Consumer Shipping and Fulfillment

Mar 15, 2021


The traditional retail fulfillment model used to be simple. Consumer goods distributors shipped pallets directly to retailers. Now, with online shopping and e-commerce, consumers can easily order items online and receive that shipment in as soon as a day or two. Distributors must leverage direct-to-consumer, or DTC, to ship products directly to the end consumer while keeping up with demand and volume.

This includes fulfilling and shipping individual orders from retailers' websites and e-commerce marketplaces like Amazon and Wayfair. While essential, DTC creates more complex operations for distributors. An enterprise resource planning solution, purpose-built for the consumer goods industry, can help with these evolving DTC challenges and processes.
