Managing packaging work flow every step of the way.

Only the most equipped 3PL providers have the capacity to manage packaging projects and all they entail from start to finish. Fulco Fulfillment, Inc. specializes in helping clients reduce administrative costs and streamline logistics resulting in everything from quicker turnaround to reduced freight costs.

If you’re presently shipping your products out to a packaging provider only to have them sent back to you to store in your warehouse, Fulco Fulfillment, Inc. can help you skip the extra freight costs and speed the cycle time by handling every aspect of your package design, packing, warehousing and distribution needs.

Fulco Fulfillment, Inc.’s custom-designed Order Management System enables clients to assign understock levels to avoid packaging supplies from being depleted. When packaging inventory reaches the replenishment level an alert is triggered and emails are generated. The client and their Fulco Fulfillment, Inc. client representative are notified that packaging is running low and it’s time to reorder, thereby avoiding delays and keeping back orders to a minimum, if not eliminated all together.

FFI’s 3PL services provide many multi-level benefits worth considering:

  • Reduction in product turnaround time and speed cycle time
  • One point of contact when utilizing a single facility for your complete packaging
  • Eliminate middlemen and maintain control of project management
  • Eliminate packaging supply out of stock or backorder situations
  • Reduce administration and freight costs
  • Stunning package design and flawless execution to maximize savings.

Why is a 3PL the right choice for your packaging solutions?

Fulco Fulfillment, Inc. works with experienced package designers who are steeped in packaging guidelines that conform to specifications as set by the client’s industry. Every design is checked carefully throughout the design and production process to make sure they qualify for the lowest freight options and avoid dimensional weight charges. While packaging is a unique part of the company’s comprehensive menu of logistics services, the true advantage is when you combine all of these services under one roof. Working with one single contact affords greater clarity and communication throughout the process thereby mitigating any chance of surprises emerging along the way. This coordination allows shipping deadlines to be met.

From start to finish, Fulco Fulfillment, Inc. keeps clients engaged in the process ensuring that the prototypes produced accurately represent not only what the client’s package will look like but how it covers all the bases from regulatory requirements to freight charges.

Specialty packaging: Is your 3PL provider fully equipped to do the job?

Throughout the year and particularly leading up to the holidays, brand managers need to plan far in advance to ensure their specialty packaging needs are ready to meet timely delivery. Attempting to fulfill these processes and meet these timelines in-house is out of the question for most retailers and consumer goods manufacturers. That’s why many choose to outsource their gift and promotional packaging to a 3PL provider who can source all of the elements that are needed, assemble them into the final deliverable, and then warehouse and distribute them.

A fully capable 3PL should be able to manage the entire design, production, packing, warehousing and distribution processes preferably all under one roof to eliminate the extra costs associated with transporting materials back and forth. Fulco Fulfillment, Inc. manages every aspect associated with specialty packaging going so far as to include applying secondary packaging such as gift wraps or packing special theme kits to assist in customer retention and to drive sales growth.

There are benefits to choosing a 3PL provider in a centralized location.

The closer a 3PL provider is to several or more transportation hubs the better freight costs can be managed. Fulco Fulfillment, Inc., for example, is located at the veritable crossroads of the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast, virtually sitting alongside I-80 where it intersects with I-287. The company is within driving distance of every important commercial center within the critical radius that spans from Boston to Washington, D.C., and its fulfillment center is just 45 minutes from mid-town Manhattan.

Fulco Fulfillment, Inc.’s convenient location is just one reason why it is the custom warehousing and fulfillment solutions provider for some of the most well-known brands in the world. With expertise gained over 20 years serving multiple industries, Fulco Fulfillment, Inc. is able to fast track your packaging processes in the most creative, cost-effective, and business savvy ways possible.

Why You Need a Fulfillment Company with Direct Mail Capabilities

Email lists are considered gold by many marketers. But are they really? Especially when they are compared to direct mail marketing lists? When you consider that as many as 78 percent of people will unsubscribe from company email lists if contacted too frequently*, one can argue that the value of all of those names falls far short of the expense that was required to collect them.

Direct mail, while often overlooked in this increasingly digital world, still holds a lofty place in the minds of marketers who know how to use direct mail to their advantage.

Turning direct mail marketing into a powerful revenue generator

An effective direct mail strategy is among the most important assets you have when it comes to building and managing a business in which goods and services are sold. Corporate marketing directors in NY, NJ, PA and CT know, when done correctly, direct mail marketing can be an invaluable tool in helping them achieve their sales goals. With Fulco Fulfillment, Inc.’s help, we can do the same for you.

Identify your potential direct mail audience

Like anything else, before you begin your marketing campaign your team should be laser focused on your target audience’s needs and preferences. What is the main priority of those who would most likely benefit from your product? Knowing your audiences and their needs is crucial when you are planning your direct mail sales pieces.

The Major Keys to Direct Mail Marketing Success:

Tracking your direct mail campaigns

Are you using an automated marketing solution to track your typical inbound efforts? Make the most of your direct mail campaigns by tracking your responses and results so you can evaluate which offers are working well and which are not. Fulco Fulfillment, Inc. can set-up your direct mail campaigns to be scheduled for automatic release weekly, monthly, quarterly, or whatever suits your business needs so you can channel your mail piece recipients to your call center or your online presence, whether that includes your website, Facebook, YouTube, etc.

Keep it visual, make it powerful

Do you recall the main message of the last overly narrative brochure you read? Probably not. That’s why it’s important to include relevant imagery in your pieces that convey the benefits of the products, services or events your company is offering.

But an image alone won’t necessarily make the sale. To ensure greater readability when it comes to copy, make sure you stay away from long sentences and big blocks of text. Your readers’ eyes want to scan your direct mail piece quickly. Keeping copy brief and focused on the offer is what grabs attention best and leads to more conversions.

Your readers’ eyes want to scan your direct mail piece quickly. Keeping copy brief and focused on the offer is what grabs attention best and leads to more conversions.

Ultimately, the goal is to create something that makes your competition pale in comparison. A creative, smartly designed direct mail campaign will help you stand out from the boring mailings that your prospects automatically ignore. Presenting something different and unique in comparison to your competitors will help set you apart and deliver your sales pitch effectively and economically.

Target those who check their mail and are not addicted to online platforms

No matter how interesting or compelling the images and messages are in your mailings, it means nothing if your audience won’t ever see them in the first place. Let Fulco Fulfillment, Inc. put direct mail marketing automation to work for you. We can help you send your mailers to audience members and increase interest in your company’s products and services.

Capture the data and put it to work for your business

You will never know how effective your direct mail services are if you don’t track how well your mailings are performing. Give your direct mail campaign a unique identifier (such as an offer code or specific phone number with a unique extension) that will enable you to track the responses when they arrive back at your website or connect via a special customer service phone number. This will help you keep track of those customers who are interested in your offer.

Most importantly, you want your audience to arrive at the destination you set for them so you can take the next step in your automated marketing or sales process. If you are not doing the proper planning up front to capture the data you need you will have acquired little value moving forward as you plan your next direct mail marketing campaign.
