Once we have a signed agreement and deposit (the deposit will ultimately be credited against your initial fulfillment service and shipping costs), we’ll provide all of the receiving details necessary for you, or your manufacturer, to ship us your products. When your shipment arrives at any FDC facility, our efficient Receiving team will compare it to the packing register, visually check it, and complete a product count to ensure everything is correct before moving your product into its designated storage location. Once your product is in-house, you can either connect to our system via your E-commerce platform or CRM, upload a CSV file of orders, or use FDC’s admin interface to manually add orders. As orders are received, FDC is committed to completing and shipping them within 24 hours. Located near parcel processing hubs, FDC’s facilities move your orders into the postal stream with the least amount of transit time, enabling your customers to receive your product as quickly as possible and saving you time and money.
