Are you ready to scale your business?
The demand is there, and it’s global! There’s no doubt that the idea of scaling the D2C beauty and health business is possible, despite the competition being stronger than ever. Having a reliable strategy in place to scale your business is essential. But the main question is: How do you scale?
How will you fulfill and ship orders promptly and at an affordable rate?
If you’re currently self-fulfilling orders, one significant sign indicates it may be time to outsource fulfillment: A growing volume of orders is coming from worldwide.
Cosmetics, especially makeup, are fragile and problematic to store, pack, and ship. It can melt and leak, or it can go wrong in the presence of humidity. So, it should be kept in clean storage with optimal climate conditions and packed carefully for safe shipping.
If your orders scale from 50 a month to possibly 100, 200, and now 400 orders a month, it might be an excellent time to scale up your logistics and fulfillment professionally.
Managing a high volume of delicate products requires a high level of expertise. There are some strategies how for protecting these parcels during transit. For example, knowing how and where the item will travel is necessary, so protective packaging should be used. Another great piece of advice is to use a trusted transport provider. Many companies will offer special services and insurance.
High SKU complexity
Maintaining health and beauty fulfillment can be tricky because of the vast number of SKUs, sensitive expiration dates on products, and the need for the proper storage of delicate goods.
The average beauty product boasts many SKUs to account for different shades and finishes. TO ENSURE PRODUCT INTEGRITY, fast-moving SKU counts require careful inventory management, including FIFO (First In, First Out) and FEFO (First Expired, First Out) sequencing. There are also seasonal product bundles or holiday gift sets that require SKUs for the sale period. You also face the complexity of factoring expiration dates into storage and picking strategies to avoid writing off stock.
