Our beauty brand clients know they can count on us for seamless EDI and eCommerce transactions. Now that we have partnered with Third Party Logistic Group (3PLG), we have a great solution for beauty specialized omnichannel order fulfillment, kitting/assembly and administrative/customer service solutions.
For nearly 20 years, 3PLG has been a valued partner for beauty brands. They know the category inside-and-out — among other challenges, there are very specific label requirements, special packing standards for retail stores and each brand wants to convey their own special customer experience with their DTC orders. By maintaining a singular focus on beauty, 3PLG has developed remarkable expertise that is unique in the category.
With the rapidly changing retail landscape, it is crucial for brands to stay ahead of the curve. The beauty category expertise of 3PLG provides a streamlined distribution solution for Retail, eCommerce, V-Commerce and Wholesale Channels. Each of these channels presents its own unique set of vendor compliance standards, along with shipping and routing instructions that must be followed precisely. The pack-out specifications, label requirements, order preparations and routing/shipping requirements can be very different for each channel and 3PLG has the experience to expertly handle all of it.
Retail has been dramatically changed by eCommerce, and 3PLG has the resources to prepare these orders. Every company wants to provide an amazing customer experience throughout the whole purchase process to create brand loyalty and gain repeat customers — that’s exactly why 3PLG makes fulfillment seamless and exact. They pick and pack out each order accurately, expeditiously, carefully, and consistently, according to the established protocols of each brand.
3PLG offers a range of methods to receive and distribute eCommerce orders. Every brand has its own budget and technological capabilities — simple or sophisticated, 3PLG works within those parameters. And they integrate with many web stores including Shopify, Woo Commerce, Volusion, and Magento.
