B2C (business-to-consumer shipping) is a common shipping format utilized by product-based businesses. In this method, the company’s own warehouse fulfills all product movement, from order receiving all the way through shipping to the customer. B2C offers a clear chain of custody for the company, handling all aspects of the inventory cycle until it arrives at the customer’s address.
Drop Shipping is a retail shipping method that splits up the supply chain responsibility between the product company and the manufacturers/warehouse shippers. A customer agreement will be drafted between the two companies, and this will be upheld by the shipping warehouse. Customer agreements contain any additional shipping requirements, including label designs, packaging needs, and more.
B2B / Wholesale
B2B Shipping (business-to-business shipping) makes up a large population of product-based businesses. In this method, products are being purchased and sold between companies before being distributed to individual consumers or other businesses. Wholesale shipping, unlike B2C, means the product will travel through multiple warehouse environments before arriving to the customer.
