E-commerce order fulfilment for subscription boxes
The subscription box marked has boomed in the last couple of years, and in doing so created a viable corner of the market for a number of brands that have grown to become household names. According to a report from Royal Mail the value of the subscription box market is forecast to grow 72%, from £583 million in 2017 to £1 billion by 2022. Royal Mail says 27% of UK customers have already signed up to a subscription box service, with boxes being most popular with under 35s, while more than half of 25-35 year olds are signed up to at least one service. Meanwhile, 40% of consumers said they will join more schemes in the future.
Should you outsource your packing and shipping?
So, with subscription boxes on the rise, businesses in this market need to give careful consideration to how they plan on fulfilling the orders they receive. Initially, when the business is small it may be more cost-effective to fulfil their orders in-house. However, as the business grows it will take up a considerable amount of time and effort. Therefore, it is important to have a plan in place for when the business expands so that you can still provide your customers with excellent customer service.
