As an eCommerce store owner, getting online orders is an important part of your business. However, to fulfill orders, it is essential to have a delivery plan in place. Having your products in stock is one half of the equation while the other is choosing the right logistics partner to ensure products reach your customer’s doorsteps safely and on time.
For your convenience, UnionBank GlobalLinker’s eCommerce platform – Linker.store comes with an integrated logistics partner at pre-negotiated, competitively priced rates. This ensures that the entire shipment process from pick-up to delivery is seamless and timely.
How does integrated logistics work?
When you want to ship an order, your logistics partner collects the package and delivers it to your customer. While processing your order through your online store seller panel, you send a query to your logistics partner, and based on the volume or weight of the order, the system fetches the cost.
Once your order is submitted, the partner picks the order from your warehouse or pick-up location and delivers it to the customer’s address. The partner also provides you details to easily track the orders.
