As Fruugo continues to support its sellers and look for ways to help them keep trading, the marketplace has launched a new Fruugo Logistics Bureau service. The service will see Fruugo brokering partnerships between its sellers and reliable third-party service providers to support them with managing an increased customer demand.
With many retailers experiencing an unprecedented spike in ecommerce sales, some are facing operational challenges as they respond to this increased demand – particularly smaller businesses that are not as well-equipped to handle the pressure. This may well be especially the case for those working in small warehouses as they try to implement the new COVID-19 Secure guidelines from the UK Government.
For businesses whose warehouse teams are struggling to keep up with this demand, the new Fruugo Logistics Bureau service gives businesses the capabilities to manage higher volumes of orders by quickly supplementing their own resources. The third party providers will help to relieve some of the operational pressures by receiving bulk stock then picking, packing and despatching items to customers on their behalf.
“Retailers are seeing a huge increase in online sales, however they are also experiencing challenges impacting their retail operations. At Fruugo our goal is to help retailers expand their business and by introducing our sellers to reliable people and service providers through this service, we hope to help alleviate some of their pressures.”
– Tony Preedy, CCO at Fruugo
