Fulfillment Services with Gateway

At Gateway, we’re here for you throughout every step of your production process. To that end, we don’t just offer manufacturing, but fulfillment services as well. It’s something we’re proud to provide to our customers because we know it saves them money and gives them a competitive advantage.

We do all of our manufacturing as Just in Time (JIT), or built-to-order. When one of our fulfillment clients receives an order, we process it and build it that day or the next, frequently getting products into the hands of our clients’ customers in three or four business days. One of our clients, PupGear, sends us orders from their retail and online stores. We then manufacture the requested product, assemble it, package it, and send it out.

Using Gateway as your company’s fulfillment partner offers many advantages. It eliminates the need to maintain your own warehouse, and the inherent costs therein, such as the cost of shipping finished products from our facility to your warehouse. In addition to saving on order processing, there’s savings on shipping: We’re centrally located here in Kentucky, which provides an advantage to clients of ours on either coast who need to ship orders over a greater distance than we do. When taken into account along with our quick production capabilities, the result is a reduction in the time it takes to get products to customers.

When you choose Gateway for your fulfillment services, you’re saving time and money– and gaining an ally that can help make your company more competitive.

Contract Packaging for Retail Products

Packaging is an essential part of any product. It is the first thing your customers see and the first thing they interact with. High quality packaging helps sell the fact that a high quality product lies within. Here at Gateway we understand this, and take great care with every project we undertake, from kitting to component packaging to final packaging.

Between our extensive experience packaging products for our customers, as well as packaging our own products, we’ve developed great relationships with our material vendors. For example, if our customer’s product needs a box, many times they refer us to their local corrugated supplied. But often times we’re able to get a better price from our supplier, lowering the overall cost of the project for our customer.

Our expertise has also given us the capability to come through in a pinch. A few weeks back a customer called to tell us that they had received a huge shipment of damaged products. The challenge presented to us: Bring the products to our facility, take out the damaged items and re-box the undamaged ones. We got it done in a matter of days, all within the required time frame.

We can handle emergency packaging jobs like the one we described above, as well as long term contracts. We also offer fulfillment services, a topic we’ll discuss in more depth in our next post.
