If you have a successful webshop, a lot of valuable time is lost on logistics. Then it is nice if you can hand it over with peace of mind. That’s what Barbara de Jong of Cutebabykleertjes.nl experienced. When her building was already completely filled with clothing boxes, a fulfillment partner offered a solution.
Thanks to the current fulfillment solutions, the logistics are in order from A to Z. The systems unburden you, save time and give Cutebabykleertjes.nl the space to focus on matters such as purchasing and marketing. With the ultimate goal: growth of the web store.
Make a decision
“I found the last step to fulfillment difficult. I had to let go of Investors Email Lists good staff. Cancel a property. Pushing so many buttons. But at that time I was so busy with logistics that I couldn’t get any further. We had to invent everything ourselves, while I just wanted to keep going. Improving our service, extending opening hours.”
When Barbara de Jong is on maternity leave for the second time in 2013, it starts to gnaw. She has several university degrees and a good job in the government. But suddenly she doubts whether she wants to go back to her old position. The reorganization at her then employer comes at the right time. She claims a domain name, watches a few tutorials online, buys her first collection and starts a webshop for baby clothes. Cutebabykleertjes.nl is a fact.
Full to the ceiling
Barbara: “E-commerce was far from where it is now. In terms of clothing, you only had a few well-known names. And there was certainly little for baby clothes.” During that first period she still does all the logistics herself. Every day with a bag of packages to the supermarket, pay for all shipping costs yourself. But soon the webshop starts to fly. “We started with some boxes in the stair cupboard and soon they were all over the house. When you opened a closet, clothes fell out. The furniture was put aside, we started using pick bins and sticker systems. We even took the television off the wall to stack bins to the ceiling, and lived in just five square feet. Then I said to my husband John: This is not going to happen anymore.”
