If you are one of the ‘rising stars’ in online beauty retailing, are you growing as quickly as you would like?
You’ve sourced great products that are finding favour and traction with consumers, your daily order rate continues to increase, you are bringing on new innovative products, you’ve grown your social following and your customer database is expanding. So, what’s holding you back?
You and your team are running faster and faster – just to keep up. But that big breakthrough to the next level of sales is still out of reach. So, where can you release time, make your resources more effective and reduce costs?
In the last 10 years, we’ve found the number one reason preventing online retailers from growing as quickly as they would like is around logistics and fulfilment. It has been the bottleneck that is preventing growth and reducing profits. We’ve worked with hundreds of online retailers – especially in cosmetics, beauty products, health, and subscription services – to streamline order fulfilment and provide the first-class logistics service that is at the heart of all successful online retailers. As online retailing continues to grow, customers are increasingly demanding of the service they receive. Service doesn’t just need to be fast – today, it needs to be super-fast. Just look at how the big retail names look after their customers, providing the best possible experience thus increasing the likelihood of repeat business.
Are you still fulfilling orders in-house?
So, you are running your own storage or warehouse operation, have a crack pick and pack team supported by experienced distribution to ensure that parcels are being sent by the most cost- effective method, and benefiting from the best negotiated discounts.
These are all areas that will take a great chunk out of your profits, and probably one of the areas that cause the most staffing issues. Do you have too many people or too few? What about sickness and illness or other absenteeism? Not to mention the time it takes to train up new people and make them truly effective. How do you cope with seasonal or other peaks? Are you paying over the odds for warehouse or storage space? Are your insurance premiums rising?
Let us take the strain of order fulfilment so you can concentrate on growing your business.
Our warehouse is your warehouse.
Why rent storage or warehouse space when you can use ours as part of our first-class logistics service. It’s fully racked, secure, clean and has the potential to expand as your business grows. You may need 100 square feet today and 200 square feet next month. No worry, we have the capacity to grow with you. We use industry-leading warehouse management systems (WMS) so you can be assured that we are adhering to best practice throughout.

Our set up is fast and simple, so you can be up and running in minutes (not hours or days) with incoming orders and returns processed in real time.
Same day fulfilment the way you want it.
Our experienced pick and pack team will always pack and wrap items in the most appropriate way with respect and care of your brand, or of course we will use your own branded materials if required.
If you want us to add a sales flyer, your newsletter, promotional item, or discount voucher to your orders – just ask – it’s part of the service. In fact, we will be pleased to organise the printed items for you – we handle this aspect for many clients working with our trusted print partners. Just ask us for a quote.
There’s money in returns!
Returned items are the ‘Cinderella’ of the fulfilment process. Returns are frequently ‘dumped’ in a skip or left on a shelf to be dealt with ‘later’. The ‘later’ never comes, and once it’s gathered enough dust, is usually consigned to the bin.
We LOVE returns! We treat them with just the same care and attention as a new outgoing order. The item is thoroughly checked for damage and if in a good condition, we re-pack and re-label if necessary and the item is placed back in storage and recorded on the inventory. So, effectively it’s putting money back into your pocket!
Are you losing money on postage?
Because we ‘buy’ so much postage from Royal Mail, Parcelforce, and other carriers, we have the buying power to negotiate the very best rates. And we always despatch via the most cost-effective route.
We are confident that we can save you money on postage, so just consider what even a small saving per item could make to your bottom line. Shipping 250 items a month? What would a 10p per item saving mean to you? Shipping 1000 items a month? Looking better! 5000 items a month? Now we’re talking. Just ask us to quote on your postage costs.
