3PL fulfillment or in-house warehouse?

New sellers often choose to store their goods in warehouses that they own, and from various perspectives, this is a wise decision. This post will provide some valuable information to help you understand the differences between in-house storage and using an external company. You will then be able to make a decision that best suits your individual needs.

An in-house warehouse provides full control over warehouse operations, allowing flexible adaptation of processes to specific requirements and changing market conditions.
However, this involves incurring high fixed costs related to infrastructure, personnel, equipment and other factors.The company must also invest in warehouse management and maintenance of the necessary resources.

Using external logistics companies, on the other hand, offers greater financial flexibility as you only pay for the services actually used. Logistics companies have the expertise, experience and infrastructure, which translates into efficient warehouse management and implementation of logistics activities.

Scalability is also a benefit of using third-party logistics companies, allowing the scale of operations to be adapted to current needs.
This flexibility is particularly valuable when dealing with seasonal spikes in order volumes or irregular activity, where many companies are not prepared for sudden spikes in sales.

Fulfilment services, such as those offered by LeanPack, can also provide benefits such as access to courier shipping options with pre-negotiated discounts. It’s a simpler and more convenient solution that allows you to focus on other aspects of your business while benefiting from professional logistics services.We’ve come to the conclusion that there’s no need to over-complicate processes that work perfectly, which is why with LeanPack everything is so simple.
