What is kitting and assembly?
When eCommerce businesses grow, they get to a point where order fulfillment is too much to handle on their own. The solution? They outsource their post-manufacturing processes to an experienced 3PL provider such as Kyzo to help manage warehousing tasks like inventory storage, picking, packing, and shipping. Sometimes, a retailer may require additional add-on services that fall outside of the regular fulfillment process cycle such as kitting and assembly.
Kitting and assembly is a fulfillment service offered by 3PL providers to help reduce processing time during picking and packing and relieves further hassles of organizing the logistics of bringing together components requiring assembly or installation. Kitting is a technique where complementary items are ordered, packaged or shipped together as a single “kit” with a unique SKU. Assembly is the process of sorting and combining the individual components that make up a kit in order to get them ready for shipment.
When is kitting and assembly required?
Kitting can help companies grow revenue and increase sales of slow-moving items while also reducing any potential errors during the fulfillment process, making this a very useful service for many online brands. The need for kitting and assembly services may also come from the way a product was manufactured or shipped, or an upcoming promotion that requires an offering to be packaged a certain way in bulk. This can include adding sample products to a package or including promotional items, inserts, catalogues, or hand written notes.
What are the benefits of kitting and assembly?
Overall, kitting and assembly services provide many benefits to online retailers including:
- Increasing manufacturing reliability and efficiency
- Reducing any production line bottlenecks, delays and errors.
- Provides opportunity to rid of slow-moving items
- Ready-to-ship packages reduces overall processing time
Although there are many benefits to this service, it’s important to note that it doesn’t always make sense to kit items. Consulting with a 3rd party logistics company will help you understand if kitting and assembly services make sense for your business and whether what you have in mind will fit in their process.
