Many times, the optimal way to fulfill an order (at least cost and fastest time to delivery) is to leverage a supplier or trading partner with a distribution center or warehouse closest to point of demand. There are several benefits of leveraging a drop ship strategy.
Vendor drop shipping is a game-changer for retailers and distributors that want to effectively increase item assortment, expand business, compete across larger channels, and enter new marketplaces and territories - without making additional investments in inventory or infrastructure. Offering an increased item assortment helps drive additional traffic to e-commerce sites, improves customer conversions, and benefits top line revenue. In short, drop shipping makes it possible to offer more products, through more channels and shipping methods, resulting in better customer service and sales.
