5 Metrics for Success in Fulfillment

5_metrics.png

“Metrics are an important part of every successful business.” We couldn’t agree more with this claim. Metrics help take the emotion and subjectivity out of running a business, and can often reveal things that are hard to see from one individual’s point of view, especially when it comes to fulfillment.

That claim comes from a recent piece by Maria Haggerty, CEO of Dotcom Distribution, in the Multi Channel Merchant blog. In the article, she recommends five key metrics to follow for eCommerce fulfillment success:

  • Units Per Hour in each facility to keep a tab on productivity,
  • Units Per Order, to get a handle on volume,
  • Lines Per Order to track the maximum efficiency you can expect,
  • Revenue Per Employee to determine labor efficiency,
  • Transportation Cost Per Package, to get the most efficiency in shipping possible.

We highly recommend giving her article a read.
