Decentralized Fulfillment

Decentralized fulfillment utilizes multiple warehouses to store goods closer to the end buyers. Merchants can reach customers in more locations in less time when products are located in warehouses closer to them. It also mitigates the risk of holding all inventory in one place. Decentralization also provides companies with the means to offer a more relevant local variety of goods to customers.

Decentralized fulfillment can help ecommerce businesses reach a wider audience. With the ability to distribute product from multiple fulfillment centers, shipping times will be expedited and they will be able to reach more customers in a shorter amount of time, leading to great customer satisfaction.  However, decentralized fulfillment may increase overall operational costs by having multiple facilities.
