How do I know if batching is right for my business?
Order batching is a fit for many retailers – those who have a mature e-commerce operation or retailers who fulfill a high number of orders, such as florists or auto parts retailers. It is best suited for those retailers that have a steady flow of orders so that they can schedule delivery around the same time each day. Smaller items can be ideal for batching because more orders can fit into a vehicle, which helps increase batch size and reduce delivery cost.
High volume retailers should also ensure that they have chain of custody capabilities so that correct orders are picked up and dropped off.
