You’ve recently discovered an opportunity to take your business to new places–literally and figuratively.
A chance for growth is at your fingertips. The technologies of the day make it possible to reach more markets than ever before without the need for excessive resources. For instance, someone starting a business from their living room in Kentucky can instantly reach consumers in Georgia or New York.
While the above paragraph is true, it is–perhaps–guilty of oversimplifying the growth process. Many hurdles exist between a hypothetical living room office and national–or even international–reach.
It’s very much possible to exponentially multiply a bare-bones operation in reach and revenue. The readily available technologies and platforms of the day empower many entrepreneurs who start with limited resources to have broader aspirations.
Still, despite the vast potential of the modern business landscape, there’s the need to turn achievable dreams into reality. Often, big-time dreamers with notions of becoming a worldwide superpower are doused with hard truths.
A universally crushing reality and momentum halter can be logistics. Supply-chain needs like inventory storage/management, delivery, and transportation–if not approached with expertise–can throw off course a once-thriving operation attempting to grow.
The Value Of At-Scale Growth.
Growth is one thing. At-scale growth is a different beast.
From the highest rung of the corporate ladder to the basement laptop of a solopreneur, the principle of at-scale growth is the same. Businesses need to do a lot with a little. They need to buy low and sell high. They need to maximize and optimize every facet of their operation to ensure your bottom line is at capacity.
How do you take your current resources, then make the leap you’re looking to make?
Before answering: Allow us to reiterate we’re not only referring to small businesses here. Medium-sized companies and massive corporations want to grow at scale like any mom-and-pop boutique. It’s the goal of anyone with an entrepreneurial mindset.
Now, back to the question of what it’ll take for your business to make that significant at-scale leap.
A 3PL warehouse supports robust at-scale growth for a litany of reasons, several of which we’ll detail below:
Cost-Efficient Access To New Markets.
It is possible to grow locally and maximize that smaller-scale geography.
However, expanding your reach to more markets (whether regional, national, or international) will widen your net. You vastly increase your odds of selling to more people because you’ll reach more people.
While marketing to these areas can call for significant resources, it’s likelier than ever to do so on a shoestring budget. For example, one budget-friendly, well-crafted, and geo-targeted social media campaign can gain your company broader notoriety at the snap of a finger.
Now, say you own a warehouse that’s provided streamlined storage and delivery for your local target base. That singular location will have its limitations as you expand. It won’t necessarily be in an area subject to ideal/affordable shipping zones. Furthermore, you may not be close enough to transportation hubs for more seamless product movement.
These issues often stifle growth initiatives. While a company’s products, merchandise, goods, brands, etc., might have mass appeal, logistics become a nightmare. Businesses start crumbling because of the increased demand instead of flourishing as they should.
Your hypothetical company (the one with one local warehousing facility) could outsource to a 3PL warehouse. In fact, they should outsource to a 3PL warehouse. Specifically, partnering with BroadRange grants you access to 3PL warehousing services and locations throughout the US.
With us, you’ll enjoy cost-efficient access to various markets. Moreover, all necessary delivery and transportation will be streamlined.
Also, the required labor will be stripped of all bloat. You’ll only spend on what’s needed and nothing more. There are no holes in our approaches and systems. Everything we do is with purpose and at-scale growth in mind.
Leverage 3PL Warehousing Services Like Inventory Management And Control.
A primary feature of our warehousing services is what occurs in our warehouses.
First, your materials will be received at one of BroadRange’s many 3PL warehouse locations across the US. Shortly after, we’ll sort these goods before tagging and labeling them. Then, we’ll ensure your items reach their previously designated location.
We use state-of-the-art warehouse system technology and insight-driven criteria to optimize your products’ sites. As such, we reduce labor costs because of lessened order-picking times.
Beyond that, we apply solutions based on your company’s needs. For instance, we ship items by lots to ensure the most stringent quality control. Alternatively, we’ll use the First-in, First-out (FIFO) method for our clients needing products moved in and out continuously.
How do these inventory-related warehousing services aid in growth?
The processes applied in the warehouse are rooted in efficiency. So, everything is at scale.
Furthermore, our customizations are significant growth drivers. We accommodate fluctuational needs based on seasonality and promotions to ensure you’re only ever investing in the required space.
We also execute each order independently. This ensures the maximum cost-efficiency and that we leave no stone unturned.
