Value Added Services: The Garnish of Logistics

Just like a four-star chef garnishes a fine meal with that little extra something, SE Warehousing provides the extra something to your service experience.  Often known as “value-added services”, these additional aids are not required of a logistics service, but they help enhance and streamline your logistics needs.  Within this area, there are many services to be explained.  SE Warehousing provides many value-added services like light assembly, display builds, kitting, and QA inspections.

Let’s look at this a bit more in-depth. When a product is manufactured, sometimes it’s not all put together in its final form, and most especially, it’s probably not put together for its final shipping container to the retailer or consumer.  Light assembly, a value-added service, would include packaging separate materials into one container. Let’s take shoes, for example.  Shoes come inside their own box… but to be shipped, they must be combined together into one container for simplicity and safety.  Having this service provided as part of your logistics solution is important because it takes another third-party hire out of the equation.

With all the shipping, assembly, and inventory, comes the potential for damage and loss.  One of our value-added services is to provide quality assurance inspections.  This ensures that your product is in pristine condition, and that your customers will be receiving their item in excellent condition.  Many companies let quality go by the wayside, but it is crucial to develop and uphold quality standards.  This builds trust between us, as your 3PL provider and you, as the client.  We all know trust and responsibility is the foundation to a great business relationship.

When considering your next move into warehousing, distribution, and logistics, be reminded of what matters to your business and what will help you grow for the future.
