Pick and Pack operations or eCommerce Fulfilment as it is sometime referred to is often considered to be a relatively new area. Dimensions Mail has been storing and running pick and pack operations for companies since 2003.

As an eCommerce business outsourcing your storage, pick and pack is a key and strategic decision. You as a online business have done all the hard work and invested your resources to get the order for the product you have in stock last thing you want is the final stage of order not being delivered on time or not delivered right. We appreciate the importance of this relationship and the significance of eCommerce fulfilment company’s role in the entire customer journey.
