What is Kitting?
Kitting and bundling is essentially a fulfillment service offered by third-party logistics providers that involves packaging together individual items that arrive in separate orders. We group these together for clients that have specific bundles for sale so that customers can purchase them in convenient packages.
A good example would be something like putting together computer parts. Kitting in warehouse would involve individual components that are then assembled into a bundle for the customer. It will contain all of the parts needed so that they can build their own computer and include everything from individual components to the tools and accessories needed to put it together. This is just one example of product kitting and one of the reasons why fulfillment kitting services are so popular.
Kitting and Bundling
The kitting process is done when items need to be arranged in a specific order. Product kitting may require some special knowledge that is passed from your company to the fulfillment kitting services. In contrast, bundling is simply putting together multiple pieces into a single bundle. Kitting packaging can also be customized and branded with your company’s logo and information, making it even more personalized and unique to your business. Our kitting and fulfillment services are the best around because we truly care about your business and satisfying your customers.
Do I Need Kitting and Fulfillment Services?
The usefulness of kitting and packaging or kitting and bundling really depends on your business model. Assembly fulfillment services are fantastic if you’re selling multiple products that can be bundled. For instance, office supplies are products that are suitable for the kitting process because it’s easy to put together a kit of items that can help your customers decide what to purchase.
Here are a couple of examples of kitting in warehouse:
Kitting in warehouse can be used to assemble products if the parts are tracked individually. Kitting assembly and fulfillment can be done on-site at East Coast Warehouse and Fulfillment so that when your customer orders a specific product, it will be shipped assembled for their convenience. This reduces the shipping costs for you since you don’t need to pre-assemble the product before it’s stored in our warehouse. You can also order multiple parts from different vendors and have them arrive ready for kitting in warehouse.
Subscription boxes have grown in popularity thanks to the variety of items that your customers get each month or week, and kitting and bundling services makes this a breeze to set up. You can make huge savings by using kitting packaging services. Kitting and fulfillment services can ensure that the process of putting together the subscription box is inexpensive, meaning you can pass the savings on to your customers. Subscription boxes also give you the opportunity to package and sell multiple products at once which helps to increase the value of your products while also being convenient for the customer. This is what makes kitting and packaging such a convenient way to sell products, especially if your store specializes in a plethora of smaller items such as makeup, cosmetics, art supplies or even food.
Some personalized goods can be considered for kitting assembly and fulfillment services if the products used can be sold separately and when they are tracked in your system. For instance, if you offer different patch options for clothing items or different color combinations for a shelf, then kitting in warehouse could be a viable option to help you offer a wider range of product choices for your customers. If you offer customization options to your customers, kitting fulfillment will help ensure that the product is assembled professionally to the customer’s specification before it is shipped. This is one of the most common uses of kitting and bundling and comes highly recommended if you want to offer personalization options to your audience.
