Consumer demands and retailer expectations are higher than ever and they are constantly creating new obstacles for today’s 3PLs. It is crucial to continuously seek improvement and look for innovative ways to refine daily fulfillment and distribution practices. These are just a few of the ways how BadgerFG stays ahead of the game and keeps your business thriving.
Location is one of the biggest factors in the cost of supply chain and distribution. Badger Fulfillment Group’s Harvard, IL warehouse is centrally located in the Midwest which allows for shorter transit times, lower shipping costs and the ability to better serve multiple time zones. We are just a short drive from the UPS Rockford Air Hub and we are surrounded by several state highways and Interstate 90.
Electronic data interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents between companies. EDI replaces the old-school methods of faxing, email and mailing paper documents. Most, if not all, big name retailers require their 3PL to be EDI compliant and it’s quickly spreading to the smaller businesses. BadgerFG is well-versed in the core EDI transactions required for order processing procedures.
Warehouse Management System (WMS)
Our web-based WMS plays an important role in our success as it provides end-to-end visibility while eliminating manual data entry. The WMS is capable of controlling multiple warehouses, shipping, receiving, inventory control, pick and pack operations and more from both desktop and RF users. It is configurable and can be modified to fit unique customer specifications. Your e-commerce orders can also be imported directly into the WMS for quick and accurate order fulfillment.
Discounted Shipping Rates
Take advantage of our discounted shipping rates on your inbound and outbound parcel, LTL and TL shipments by utilizing our shipping accounts. Our high-volume business has led to negotiated shipping rates with several major carriers which we gladly pass along to our clients. You can see savings up to 45% off of standard published rates which can save you hundreds to thousands of dollars per shipment.
Shopping Cart Integration
We streamline the e-commerce fulfillment process by automatically connecting to your online shopping cart. This allows us to gather important order details soon after the consumer clicks “Place Order” on your website. We then pick, pack and ship the order for delivery. Below are some of the shopping carts we recommend and have integration methods in place with. If your shopping cart is not listed, we will create a custom solution for you.
