Trusted, reliable charity fulfilment for merchandise, direct mail and event fulfilment
Managing the fulfilment side of any charity must, at times, feel like spinning plates – especially if you are a small team with many tasks to undertake. But fulfilment of branded merchandise, ‘welcome’ and donation ‘thank you’ packs or event assets is such a vital part of a charity’s work. It’s important to have a trusted, reliable and experienced fulfilment provider which offers competitive pricing.
Merchandise fulfilment – from one piece to one thousand pieces
Sales of charity merchandise is generally unpredictable, apart from those peak times such as Christmas or following a TV or promotional campaign, so it makes resource planning even more challenging. To us, it makes good commercial sense to outsource your merchandise fulfilment, to alleviate the headache of running an internal temporary team (who you will need to train and supervise) and, ensuring that you are never overloaded with orders or have too few people to carry out the fulfilment. It’s like having your own team without the stress!
Let us take the strain of charity fulfilment
Once you’ve handed over your merchandise fulfilment to us, you can totally relax. You have passed over all the problems associated with handling charity fulfilment in-house.
Instead, it’s our experienced team who precisely pick the right items, pack them carefully and appropriately and despatch by the most cost-effective method. And, if we receive orders before 5pm, they will be despatched same business day.
Charity fulfilment with competitive pricing!
Unlike some fulfilment companies, Adstral Fulfilment does not charge a set-up fee for new clients, or management fees going forward. Nor do we charge for processing every item received at our Goods-In department. Our pricing is completely transparent – you pay a set price per transaction which makes cashflow much easier to manage.
Our Pricing Page outlines our approach to pricing and we invite you to request a quotation to see how much your fulfilment will cost with us – just enter your details and click! https://www.adstralfulfilment.co.uk/fulfilment-pricing/
Direct mail charity fulfilment
The lifeblood of a charity is the people. Those who donate, sponsor and give up their time to organise fundraising events or charity collections, which makes timely communication so important. When people donate, you will want to thank them promptly; when someone sponsors, they will look forward to receiving their welcome pack so a prompt delivery will be appreciated.
Most charities have distinct categories of communication. Some may be general, others personalised, some may include multiple items, others may include a gift. But whatever category, it is vital that the fulfilment is prompt and 100% accurate.
In addition to providing charity fulfilment services, we also manage campaign and subscriptions data to support the scheduling of time-critical fulfilment and distribution.
Fundraising event fulfilment
Depending on the size of your charity and nature of activity, fundraising events can be national, regional, or localised; annual or more frequent. Whatever the size or frequency, it is important that the event assets are delivered to the right people at the right time. There can be nothing worse than a party without the balloons!
Our flexible, secure warehousing can accommodate all your event items such as banners, bunting, collection boxes, leaflets, exhibition packs, small merchandise items and anything else that your campaign requires.
