Perhaps the most important thing to look at when evaluating ecommerce order fulfillment centers is to find one that has experience working with online retailers that sell products like yours.
Here are some reasons why:
- the fulfillment center will know how to package the products for shipping in a way to minimize damages and minimize the amount of packing materials needed
- they'll already have boxes in that size which will help keep costs down because they can buy them in greater volumes
- their shelving and racks will be set up to accommodate the size and shapes of your products which makes their operation more efficient and lowers their cost to store your products
