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.

The beauty industry is a $532 billion sector of the economy that is experiencing rapid growth. This increase is mainly due to the rise of e-commerce and omni-channel sales, with projections reaching $390 billion globally by 2024, according to Forbes. From a vast number of SKUs with LOT tracking requirements to hazardous goods storage and handling compliance standards to shipping bulk orders to big-box retailers to the demands of B2C e-commerce, order fulfillment has never been more critical to one of the fast-growing and most competitive industries. A qualified third-party logistics company can utilize its warehouse network, technology, and transactional cost models to provide effective fulfillment solutions to health and beauty brands. 

Compliance and Experience


Unlike technology products, which may only launch a new product one time a year, cosmetic brands usually release new products seasonally, plus exclusive holiday campaign products. Meaning you have a tight margin for keeping your customers happy without being left with an excess of out-of-style inventory. Understanding what is required in each stage of the fulfillment process and your precise brand needs should be a top priority. Due to the purpose and composition of these products, your logistics partner must have the appropriate local, state, and federal licenses, permits, certifications, training, and facility infrastructure to store, handle and ship health and beauty items correctly. Accurate, efficient, and reliable fulfillment and delivery are essential in maintaining the integrity of your brand in this fast-growing industry.

Inventory Management & Visibility 


Products need to be ready to ship at the right time; brands and their 3PL partner need to think about the future. As stated earlier, health & beauty companies and their growing revenues show that demand is being generated, typically through new products and consumer trends. Brands want to make sure their products are readily available while they’re still popular. It’s this constant battle between supply and demand. A 3PL can make sure a company’s inventory remains uncontaminated and relevant once a company has developed its inventory. The best part is that the right 3PL can track all aspects of the supply chain in real-time. With reliable transportation and fulfillment, a 3PL partnership will make a cosmetics brand inventory much more manageable.

Are you thinking about partnering with a third-party logistics (3PL) company? If you are new to outsourcing fulfillment, what goes on in warehouses and fulfillment centers may seem daunting. But the fulfillment process doesn’t have to be such a mystery! Our team is taking a look at the journey of an order through 3PL fulfillment.

Receiving


Your 3PL can’t ship orders if they don’t have your inventory! The receiving of your product is one of the top warehousing operations that must happen before your 3PL can start fulfilling orders for your online store. Receiving refers to the acceptance of incoming inventory, followed by its storage. Once your 3PL receives the products, they store your items in warehouses and fulfillment centers. Each SKU has a separate dedicated storage location, either on a racking shelf, in a bin, or on a pallet.

Picking 


The fulfillment process begins once your customer places an order. As soon as an order is sent to your 3PL through their WMS, it is assigned to the picking team. Using the most efficient picking pattern, the picker receives a picking list of items, quantities, and storage locations at the facility to collect the order products from their respective areas. 3PLs understand that your goal is to minimize cost per order for fulfillment services. The picked items for each order are scanned and set aside for packaging.

Packing 


After the picker has collected all the products for the order, it’s time to get them securely packed up and ready for shipping. Items are compiled and placed – along with dunnage and any other extra materials – into the appropriate box or bag. The printed shipping label is then affixed. Take place at this stage to ensure what was ordered is what was picked. Checks include order accuracy, packaging appropriateness, and labeling accuracy.

Shipping


You may rely on your 3PL to manage parcel shipping on your behalf; if your volumes are modest, there could be a significant cost advantage to shipping under your 3PLs negotiated agreements with carriers. The 3PL will negotiate rates based on its aggregate volume across many different clients. 

3PL Fulfillment


While these are the primary functions of online order fulfillment, just about every aspect of the process is customizable. Many 3PLs offer additional value-added services such as kitting and packaging.

Since transitioning to our new warehouse on International Boulevard in Cincinnati, Ohio our operation managers have decided to implement new principals into our daily practice. At our old facility all employees, visitors, and contractors were required to wear the standard yellow safety vest. Having everyone  in the same colored vest made it hard for managers and employees to distinguish team Taylor from contractors on the warehouse floor. Grant Taylor General Manager of Contract Warehousing had an amazing idea to order different colored vests and create categories for the various different colors. Taylor employees in yellow, contractors and visitors in orange, and all management in a tri-colored vests. This way everyone can spot who is who on the warehouse floor.

Since the implementation of the different vest categories we have had great response from warehouse operators and our warehouse management. Clay Revis Taylor’s World Park Warehouse Manager states  “ It’s more of a safety thing than anything, there are several projects happening on the warehouse floor. It’s nice to look out and see where the contractors are” .  At Taylor we are always looking for ways to improve our processes and by doing so we follow a procedure called 5s. 5s is an organization technique to create and maintain an intuitive workspace. Given the name 5s there are five essential categories sort, set in order, shine, standardize, and sustain. The implementation of the safety vests falls under the 4th S which is “standardize” set standards for a consistently organized workplace. As we continue to refine practices we will be using the 5s model to help guide us to a safer and more profitable warehouse.
