The Impact of COVID-19 on eCommerce
The spread of COVID-19 (and the panic spread by news and social media) has had a substantial effect on consumer behavior. The panic buying of household staples such as toilet paper, sanitary wipes, hand sanitizer, and foodstuffs like dried pasta and rice has strained the supply chain. People unable to get their hands on the supplies they feel essential for survival during the COVID-19 pandemic turning to ecommerce are creating a surge in online shopping, as are people trying to stay home and practice social distancing by instead shopping online. Even distribution centers for large companies like Amazon have been affected.
COVID-19 Reveals Fulfillment Challenges
ShipWizard’s 3PL Services During the COVID-19 Outbreak
In order to protect our ecommerce clients and their customers, we are taking additional precautions, stepping up our sanitizing protocols. Online orders of medical devices and health-related equipment have stepped up in response to the pandemic, and we are rising to the occasion to make sure these supplies get where they need to be and in as much safety as possible. As always, we are committed to offering a customized fulfillment solution from start to finish that works seamlessly with your online infrastructure.
3PL for Medical Devices
Patients and consumers require on-time and accurate delivery of their medical devices. The quality of their health care depends on it. Operation rooms can be held up if timely deliveries are not made. Modern, top-quality management systems and well-trained, experienced, professional staff should be priorities for both 3PL companies looking to offer their services to medical device companies, and also for clients seeking a suitable 3PL provider.
