A new TikTok Shop fulfillment service demonstrates the importance of ecommerce to the entertainment platform. Hiring is taking place for logistics professionals to build the new fulfillment service from the scratch.
This is a pretty serious undertaking as anyone in the logistics industry will know and shows a firm commitment by TikTok Shop to becoming a best in practice ecommerce experience. It’s only by owning the delivery experience that customers can be delighted and key strategic relationships with sellers, 3PLs, and Logistics Providers will be needed to make this a success.
It’s putting down a pretty big marker in the sand as for the TikTok Shop fulfillment service to be a success consistent high volume sales will be needed. Neither retailers nor fulfillment partners want stock languishing on the warehouse shelves and the best fulfillment operations see stock landing and being shipped out to customers within days. This suggests that key sellers with high profile campaigns and expected resultant high volumes of sales will be first to use the new service.
