Less Financial Risk

If you were to handle everything in-house, you may find yourself overstaffed and overstocked when a sale or holiday period dies down. Often times a fulfilment provider will offer a flexible contract, therefore minimising your financial risk and saving you the hassle of down-sizing your staff levels. This is where we at Pointbid get to know your business profile, products and market space.

It’s where we help you tailor the process to provide the very best solution to your fulfilment requirements. A service that provides cost-effective, focused solutions for your business.

You can leave the inventory control, picking, packing and despatch to us and concentrate on growing your business. We provide a dedicated account manager and advice.

There will also be options to assist you in getting rid of any redundant and leftover stock following a seasonal sale if you don’t want it delivered back to you.
