Ecommerce & Direct-to-Customer Fulfillment

+ SmartMerge

Drop Ship Vendors (DSVs) offer a great way for retailers to quickly and easily add to an assortment.  Operationally however drop-shipping can quickly drive higher freight and customer support costs when orders are split between multiple warehouses.  In addition to higher cost it can be difficult if not impossible to deliver a consistent brand experience across a network of different shippers.

We’ve applied the same innovative thinking that changed the warehouse model to the drop ship model.  With SmartMerge retailers, gain the ability to place daily consolidated orders with their DSVs driving economic order volumes resulting in freight and fulfillment cost savings for the retailer.  These consolidated orders are received directly into ‘our Kiva system and are immediately available for shipment.  Received inventory can then be merged, in real-time, with in-stock inventory or held momentarily pending the arrival of other inbound DSV shipments.

As non-stocked items are received our state-of-the-art warehouse management system will recognize orders as available for completion allowing for rapid order fulfillment.

SmartMerge Benefits

  • Avoid freight and small order fulfillment charges common to most DSV programs
  • Improve customer and brand experience by lowering freight and fulfillment costs, while minimizing or avoiding multiple deliveries per order
  • Reduced customer contact center costs as a result of fewer split shipments and a more consistent end-customer experience.
