If you are shopping around for ways to cut order fulfillment warehousing costs in 2013 you may want to take a look at where your fulfillment warehouse is located. “If your order fulfillment facility is not located near your client base or hub, it could cost your organization an additional 4%,” says IntegraCore Atlanta President, Brian Schoenbaechler.

IntegraCore Atlanta’s warehouse facility is located in the same city with the busiest airport in the world, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. “The three key advantages to working with a warehouse where your customers are located include reducing transportation costs, your carbon footprint and deliver your inventory to your happy customers.”

1. Reducing transportation costs.
Fuel costs continue to inch up, and the days of plummeting prices at the pump are over. Additionally, fuel costs always go up during the summer. If your warehousing fulfillment facility is father away, you will be paying for it in fuel surcharges.

2. Reducing your carbon footprint. Less miles for inventory to travel means less green house gas as well. Deliver your inventory to your happy customers. Exceeding the delivery time is one of the best ways to create happy customers and most importantly, repeat customers. Not to mention the edge that your company will have over your competition.
