Experience with Fulfillment Partners / 3PL?

Does anyone have experience (good / bad) working with fulfillment partners and 3PL?

- Any recommendations?
- What's working well, what could be better?
- Do they usually offer consulting/advise?
- What are services that they usually don't offer, but would be helpful?
- For which sellers would you recommend using them (own brand, dropshipper, maturity, ...)?

  • Been struggling with this for a while. Very good communication is so important to me and it's hard to find. I've been talking to nichedropshipping.com and they have been amazing so far. That being said I haven't placed an order yet but they do the whole thing: private label, packaging, US fulfillment, clear communication. They're part of CJdropshipping.
    If you're looking to order for CNY.. do so soon, factories are getting pressured to closed earlier bc of COVID.
    Hope that helps.

  • Hi, we handled all of our fulfillment in house to start. As a brand with small items this was relatively easy. We tried to expand to our own warehouse but ultimately made the decision to work with a 3pl.

    It ended be the better decision based on our product and needs. I'd recommend trying to do it yourself and if you can invest and manage the support it's definitely the way to go.

    If you're looking at 3pl's, I've been pretty happy with our partner at atomix logistics since they tend to focus on smaller brands
