It can be difficult to manage your operations as well as additional warehouse services like product kitting, assembly and light manufacturing. Kitting and assembly services are beneficial for companies that are looking to streamline their supply chains and warehouse processes, especially in industries where the product output and demand tend to fluctuate.
At ITS Logistics, our kitting and assembly services allow you to outsource projects to us that would otherwise monopolize your valuable time and warehouse space. We are able to provide flexible solutions that won’t require you to dedicate endless time and resources to them. Regardless of what combination of our kitting, assembly and light manufacturing services you require, our efficient and flexible processes are designed to ensure that we can create a customized solution for you—and save you money while doing so.
What is kitting?
We offer several kitting and assembly services. One of these services is the process of compiling specific individual items into ready to ship packages, known as kits. This process is typically done using assembly lines and pick and pack fulfillment methods. There are several circumstances in which a company might use kitting.
For example, if you sell an electronic in multiple countries, but don’t want to worry about packaging each box with a different charger or adaptor, we can package that together for you before shipping. Additionally, if you run a subscription box business, or want to send a special holiday package to your customers, you can mail us the separate pieces that need to go in the package and we will take care of the rest. Our kitting and assembly experts will bundle the items together in customized kits that are shipped as one unit.
Another aspect of kitting and assembly fulfillment is light manufacturing, or production as a service. We understand that sometimes you might need part of your packaging built out before shipping to the customer, or maybe you need the product modified slightly before shipping. It doesn’t make sense for you to send us an empty box to pack your items in, but with our light manufacturing services, you don’t have to worry about the costly and convoluted process of assembly or modification.
We also know that not everything always goes as planned in this industry. If something happens to your product during the manufacturing or shipping process, we can help. Whether one of your products needs paint touched up, battery replacement or component replacement, we can create a solution for you.
Start-to-finish kitting and assembly process
When you outsource your kitting process to ITS Logistics, we manage the entire operation in a way that prevents errors and saves time. Our kitting and assembly experts use our advanced warehouse management system throughout the kitting process.
When a package with several separate items is ordered, warehouse staff members use SKUs to identify which items to pick for order fulfillment. Once these items are kitted together within the WMS, an individual SKU is assigned to that bundle. The bundle is then packaged together and prepared for shipping.
Delivering better value through kitting and assembly
Having a comprehensive kitting and assembly process is beneficial for your company because it allows items to be fulfilled faster, it reduces mistakes, and it makes packaging more efficient and cost-effective. When you outsource your kitting services to ITS Logistics, we handle everything from inventory management and storage to product kitting, light assembly and fulfillment services. Our staff will create logistics solutions for your business that are designed to give you the best bang for your buck— and they always include our excellent customer service.
