As an entrepreneur it is important that you always have goods in your warehouse to be able to meet the demand of your customers. For example, at Christmas time it is very normal that you sell more than other months or that suppliers do not bring in the amount of products you have ordered.

Although it is not the best situation, we assure you that it is more common than you may think. Some time ago, it was common to wait until all the merchandise was ready and send it to the customers, otherwise the order had to be cancelled with the consequent loss of money that this implies.

Today, new functions are implemented to make these cases a thing of the past. Partial shipments are one of the newest solutions you can use with your suppliers. In the following text we will explain everything you need to know about this option.

How to make partial shipments

In the world of shipping there are many variables that we must take into consideration. The climate, the available human resources, the means of transport and a host of issues that make the delivery a challenge that we do not realize at any time of the process. For this reason, it is normal that placing an order in its entirety is something that cannot be done.

When we talk about partial shipments, we refer to an option where the supplier, seeing the pitfalls that will be found on the road or some problem that is difficult to solve, subtracts the amount of supplies that are delivered, dividing them into different parts to make it easier to mobilize them.

Transport companies and suppliers make use of this option as a way for customers not to lose time and money with delays in their goods. As we said before, it is normal that at certain times the demand for products is higher and therefore the number of orders is greater.

To place this type of order, all you have to do is go to your shipping company’s page, select the partial shipment option, select the quantity according to the supplier and choose the number of units of each product you want to ship. That’s how easy it is. The page will give you other options such as locating products, which will help you see in real time where your products are.

So, in this simple way you can solve your stock problems. Remember to ask the company’s advisors to find out what options they offer you, choose the one that best suits you and your customers’ needs. Although many people are afraid to make this kind of shipments, for fear that the fragmentation of them could end up in losses, we assure you that the companies are more than qualified to face any detail that crosses their path.
