Now that you can see the results of your hard work . . . setting up your own business, building your brand and growing your bottom line, do you sometimes feel like supply chain and order fulfillment needs are running the show? Do you spend excessive time and labor trying to get your ducks in a row instead of focusing on expanding your line to include other products, services or features?
When successful businesses outgrow their space, business owners are faced with growing pains, revolving around renting or buying storage space, hiring and training supply chain staff and squandering their talent pool on managing your increasing business. In a perfect world, business plans include infrastructures that support growth and scale upwards as you grow or downwards in off-seasons.
But who can totally predict consumer actions, allowing for adjustments as your business expands? Then there are other considerations, such as updating your technology for more accurate inventory controls and purchasing new equipment to improve your packing operations. It’s always something. Lately, do you feel yourself coming down with a case of What now? or How do we handle this?

- Your warehouse dock has developed a queue
Your business is booming and that is great news but not if this means that packages are waiting in a queue to be sent out. If you are going to ship your packages out on time, you cannot afford to be backed up at the warehouse dock. This is a sign that your business has reached a workload that you can no longer handle locally and in order to maintain customer satisfaction, you need to look beyond your own team.
- You require dedicated teams for inspection, accuracy and even returns but can’t afford the manpower
Your sales have skyrocketed and you have enough orders where you now need to hire additional staff to inspect packages and check for accuracy before packages leave your warehouse. Perhaps, you have also found a need for a team dedicated to processing returns from beginning to end. This additional staff means additional overhead on your end. Are you able to fit that into your budget? Phase V has highly-trained staff ready to take care of all of these tasks for you.
