Corporate Warehouse Services
Warehouse services are at the heart of your eCommerce business. Ensure your products are stored properly and strategically with a warehousing and fulfillment provider that treats your products like their own. Primo Corporations Warehouse Services provides complete solutions for warehousing and supply chain needs in the United States.
Warehouse services could be simple storage of goods (warehousing). Or companies can offer logistics, and inventory management. Picking, packing, shipping, and storage are each an example of a warehouse service.

Types Of Warehouses
There are three types of warehouses: fulfillment, storage, and distribution. Many of these facilities don’t fall strictly into only one of these categories.
Primo Fulfillment is primarily a fulfillment warehouse, providing expert logistics and warehousing services. We provide inventory storage, so there is overlap in our 3PL facility with other types of warehousing.
When you choose a third-party logistics warehouse for your eCommerce company, you’re making a choice that can have a significant impact on your business. Fast, accurate fulfillment and shipping can win you repeat customers and get you good online reviews.
When you make a list of attributes you want in your fulfillment warehouse, location might not be at the top of the list. But it should. The location of your warehousing is a big factor in your shipping costs and delivery times. And those make a big difference in customer satisfaction.
There is nothing more disappointing to a customer than opening a box to find the wrong product inside. Even if you move heaven and earth to fix the error, you can’t erase that first impression. Accurate fulfillment is crucial for the success of your business. Fulfillment errors cost you money in multiple ways: personnel time for customer service, return shipping and reshipping, restocking costs, and canceled orders.
Every year, eCommerce speeds up. Customers want their orders delivered quickly. There are two ways to accomplish this. The first is by locating your products in warehouses close to your customers. The second is same-day fulfillment.
What Are The Primary Warehouse Activities?
Different types of warehouses provide different services. In a 3PL warehouse, the primary warehouse services include receiving, picking and packing, order fulfillment, and shipping. Your warehousing providers should be experts at these core processes.
Receiving, or inbound shipping, is the process of checking-in and unloading your items when they arrive by container or tractor-trailer. This is a crucial, often-overlooked, warehouse service. Fast, accurate receiving can mean the difference in having products in stock on your website and ready to sell or unavailable, lost, or on backorder. Once your products have been logged into inventory and placed on the shelves, they are ready for the warehouse team to pick and pack them.
Whether your goods are coming from overseas or across the states, the Primo Corporations Fulfillment inbound shipping team is ready and waiting to receive and log them as quickly and accurately as possible. You want your products in inventory and ready for picking and packing — and we do, too. That’s why we have accuracy guarantees — like our 2-day dock-to-stock guarantee — and reward our team members for swift, error-free receiving.
Picking & Packing
When your customer places an order on your eCommerce website, the information goes directly to your 3PL warehouse. A picker will find the items for the order, each in a designated space on the shelf. A packer will find the perfect-sized box and add infill around your products so they can ship safely.
Accurate picking and packing is the foundation of a successful eCommerce business. Primo Corporations Fulfillment was founded by eCommerce entrepreneurs, so our company was built to provide the best fulfillment services in the industry. We pick and pack orders the same day we receive them, with a cutoff as late as 5:00 pm. If we mis-pick or mis-pack an order, we pay you certain amount. Fortunately, our experienced warehouse staff has a near-perfect accuracy record.
Order Fulfillment & Shipping
The final stage of order fulfillment is shipping. After your order is packed and labeled, it moves to the shipping station. At specific times each day, FedEx, UPS, USPS, and other carriers may stop by the warehouse to pick up outbound shipments. Once a package leaves the warehouse, the carrier is responsible for getting it safely to your customer.
Primo Corporations Fulfillment services extend beyond the warehouse dock. We have relationships with the major carriers that allow us to negotiate favorable rates and better dimensional weight factors — which can save you money on shipping. And we move heaven and earth to keep your orders going out. In a crunch, when carrier capacity limitations slowed down shipping for other warehouses, we found creative solutions so our clients experienced little to no delivery delays.
