There are several marketplaces for eCommerce sellers, but one of the largest in the game is Shopify. Why has Shopify snowballed? Its bulletproof no-code design allows sellers to set up a store, sell, accept payment, manage inventory, showcase product pages, and connect with partners. 

Are you using Shopify and looking to transition your fulfillment to a third-party logistics provider? Yes, it might sound a bit intimidating, but we promise it’s easier than you think! Your Shopify inventory dashboard will match your logistics partner WMS inventory, returns will be seamless, and you can focus on your core business by leaving the logistics to a 3PL (cough, cough, Taylor). 

Shopify x 3PL Partner


Just like Shopify, your 3PL is here to help your business grow. A logistics partner can help with fulfillment management, inventory control/ planning, transportation, and excellent parcel shipping rates. Utilizing outsourced logistics, you’ll have more time to launch new products, make some TikToks, expand your brand, and focus on your business goals. 

Find a 3PL Who Loves a Shopify Integration


A solid 3PL will have a Shopify integration widget that enables sellers to manage their Shopify storefront, design, new products, sales, etc. but connect it to a 3PL to handle fulfillment and shipping. In addition, the integration will allow sellers to see real-time inventory info within the Shopify dashboard. So selling out products will never be an issue; it will also help you forecast future demand. 

Here’s how it works, when orders are placed through Shopify, it will go straight into the 3PLs warehouse management system. Making order management simple because it’s automated, there’s no need to upload a spreadsheet, download, or even click the mouse. Once you set up the Shopify store and connect via EDI, orders will flow directly to the fulfillment center and will be processed. The advantage of partnering with a logistics company is that you have real people handling your inventory and business. You can call on your personal assigned rep, tech superuser team, operations managers, and even the COO. There’s no call center, no putting in a ticket, no waiting for support.

From the Taylor Talk podcast vault: Transitioning to eCommerce fulfillment with Grant Taylor, while this episode initially aired months ago, it seems more relevant now than ever.

Our operations, IT, and superuser teams have been working vigorously to transition five distribution centers into eCommerce centers. This was a massive undertaking for our team because; eCommerce granted customers can break open cases, which was an entirely different process for Taylor.

Taylor Logistics Production Team

Our production, kitting, and packaging team at our public warehouse World Park One operated at over 100% efficiency optimization last week. How is running at 160% yes 160% efficiency even possible? Especially during the busy holiday shipping season? Well, let’s break it down. 

Our Operations Business Manager, Liz runs time studies on various customer kitting and packaging projects using general cycle time formulas, which can be used to calculate the time needed from receiving the product from the bins to having it “ship ready.” In addition to performing time formulas, here are some other ways our team stays productive: 


Our production team has optimized the floor to make it simpler for employees to locate all parts in one place, which ultimately boosts worker efficiency and productivity. 


We print shipping labels beforehand, which cuts out the need to weigh and label individual items at the time of shipping. 


There are particular techniques and sequences we use to ensure that profitability is not consumed by poor planning. First, pick each case and pallet in separate zones by separate individuals for fast parallel picks. Second, combine a set of picks into one wave set with options to auto-ship or move to packaging with secondary quality assurance checks. Third, license plates are automatically assigned during picks for optimal staging, kitting, packaging, shipping, and site transfer receipts. Fourth, institute a short pick, unpick canceled orders or partially staged picks with a hold status. Fifth, order picks with routes are automatically distributed in the reverse stop order. Seventh, we review FIFO (First In, First Out), FEFO (First Expired, First Out), primary pick, or hybrid models.


The pandemic has accelerated eCommerce growth in the US this year, with online sales reaching a level not previously expected until 2022. Not to mention the shipping delays, this eCommerce volume is producing. That’s why it’s critical for our teams to be operating at the highest efficiency levels, to ensure our customers’ products are getting to the consumer on-time and mistake-free. 

Warehouse kitting is a simple but effective order fulfillment strategy that can save your business time and money! Please contact our fulfillment experts with any questions. We are happy to consult with you on how to provide a kitting solution to meet your specific needs.

Taylor Logistics Inc fulfillment services

As a supplier or manufacturer, you may need to manage regular demand, seasonal spikes, and special promotions with strategies that allow you to meet your customer’s in-store requirements without burdening your inventory pipeline. Custom displays, created in the warehouse just before shipping, are a proven working strategy. Not only do custom displays help with your inventory pipeline, but they are an essential marketing tool for several suppliers on retail floors.

A lot of displays have come through Taylor’s facilities across a variety of industries and a wide range of customers. From temporary projects to those that are more permanent, and they range in size from large pallet and floor displays to small counter-top displays. To evolve with special project demands, Taylor has launched a new team, the ISDT team or In-Store Design Team. This newly organized unit was created to be solely designated to the operation and building of point-of-purchase (POP) display units.

Along with the creation of the ISDT, Taylor offers other unique warehousing and fulfillment capabilities. Taylor has created a non-siloed operation system comprised of top of the line logistics services for their customers. Taylor’s transportation group, in alignment with their brokerage department, can manage inbound and outbound transportation using the most efficient modes. Taylor aligns all processes with design and technology allowing them to be there for you throughout the entire process to the retailer.
