Order Fulfillment Services ­­- Category Spend Analysis

According to SpendEdge analysts, a key factor contributing to the growth of the market is the increasing intra-regional trade, especially among the emerging economies in the APAC region including India, China, Australia, and Japan. Moreover, emergence of manufacturing capabilities in these countries will also boost this market’s growth.

Order Fulfillment Services - Procurement Best Practices

Category managers should look for service providers that offer inventory optimization tools such as in-transit visibility, which will help buyers check bottlenecks and take immediate remedial measures to avoid inventory hold-ups, for instance, the use of multi-echelon inventory optimization helps streamline inventory, calculate ideal stocking location, and calculate size of inventory buffer.

Order Fulfillment Services - Procurement Challenges

Based on the analysis in this report, a major procurement pain point experienced by employers is adhering to timelines. Buyers prefer to engage with suppliers that offer shorter timelines for processing and delivery of product. However, they are unable to meet the scheduled timelines due to change in transportation schedules or shortage of labor. To overcome these challenges, buyers must include penalty clause in SLA for delay in product deliveries.
