As an eCommerce store owner, getting online orders is an important part of your business. However, to fulfil orders, it is essential to have a delivery plan in place. Having your products in stock is one half of the equation while the other is choosing the right logistics partners to ensure products reach your customer’s doorsteps safely and on time.
For your convenience, GlobalLinker’s eCommerce platform – Linker.store comes with integrated logistics partners at pre-negotiated, competitively priced rates. This ensures that the entire shipment process from pick-up to delivery is seamless and timely.
