Cahoot Vs. 3PL

Ecommerce Order Fulfillment: Peer-to-Peer vs. Third Party Logistics Companies

Cahoot’s Peer-to-Peer Order Fulfillment Network
Typical Third Party Logistics Company
FLEXIBLE ORDER FULFILLMENT
  • multiple locations (nationwide coverage)
  • no long-term contract
  • can change with your changing needs
  • option to offset costs by reciprocating fulfillment
RIGID ORDER FULFILLMENT
  • single location
  • long-term contract
  • can’t adapt to your needs
  • strictly offers outsourced fulfillment (higher cost)
UNIFORM
  • single entity
  • uniform process across peer-to-peer network and locations
VARIABLE
  • different entities/contracts for additional fulfillment locations
  • different processes for different 3PLs
CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY
  • built for fast-evolving ecommerce
  • provides data-driven insights
  • automatic tracking/alerts through to delivery
LEGACY
  • not originally designed to handle ecommerce
  • no insights provided into your business
  • must manually track deliveries, no alerts
MAINTAIN SHIPPING CONTROL
  • your orders ship on your carrier accounts
THEY CONTROL SHIPPING
  • use their own carrier accounts (so you lose the volume to negotiate your own favorable rates)
SEAMLESS INTEGRATION
  • integration with your favorite channels and popular software systems
MANUAL INTEGRATION
  • manual uploading of orders and doesn’t integrate with the systems you use
SEASONED ECOMMERCE PARTNERS
  • order fulfillment partners are highly-vetted merchants, just like you, so they have intimate knowledge of what’s at stake and what’s required to meet SLAs
LACKS REAL-WORLD EXPERIENCE
  • lacks the deep knowledge and experience that comes from being an ecommerce seller-fulfilled merchant
