Keep Your Supply Chain Running Smoothly With Kitting & Assembly Services

Perhaps you are ready to hire an outside fulfillment services provider to kit and assemble your product(s) in a way that’s far more efficient and cost-effective than what you can do on your own. Or, maybe your current kitting fulfillment provider just isn’t doing the kind of job you need to justify the expense.

No matter what the reason, when you are researching your kitting and assembly services options, it’s important to know what you need and why you need it. You will want to work with a kitting and assembly service provider that can do the job properly and at a reasonable price.

More than that, you will want this provider to be able to provide any and all related services—including shipping, bagging or shrink-wrapping, for instance—all under the same fulfillment services umbrella.

So, what is kitting? When we talk about kitting services or assembly services, we are talking about terms used in order fulfillment to refer to the assembly of individual items into ready-to-ship sets, or kits. It’s important to note that in the world of fulfillment services, kitting is not the same as pick, pack and ship services, but these services can be related. The kitting process might also include other necessary services like shrink-wrap, labeling bottles or attaching items to cards, for instance.  

Kit, assemble, ship.

One example of an item that might require a kitting service is the board game Monopoly. As you probably know, this game includes a variety of components, including the game board, the pieces that move around the board, the paper money, property cards, plastic hotels and houses and more.

Some of these components also have to be further assembled; for example, the money has different denominations and need to be ordered in a certain way. Without all the components assembled together and in the proper groupings within the box, you would be unable to play the game or, as a retailer, sell it.

That’s where we—and our customized kitting and assembly services—come in. Whether you need kitting expertise, pick, pack and ship services—or both—we are here to support and service you and your team.
