Ship Direct From Supplier
Supplier Direct, Direct Ship, Drop Ship, Supply to Home, Direct to Customer -- however referred to, the concept enables you to have an item sent from a supplier or manufacturer directly to the end recipient. Until now, direct ship has only been the preserve of the very large or brave retailer, as the infrastructure changes, operational needs and costs have inhibited most retailers’ ability to setup and benefit from such operations economically.
MetaPack offers a scalable Supplier Direct function that provides control, visibility, flexibility and contingency, and can be utilised by both the smallest and largest operations with relatively little outlay or change to your current operational process.

With MetaPack’s integration with UK and European carriers, our Intelligent Despatch engine and communications functionality, you can easily manage your direct ship process. Import orders and make them visible to the supplier, use any carrier without changing operational processes, provide a transparent delivery process to the supplier as well as the customer and gain visibility throughout the entire consignment journey.
MetaPack were the obvious choice when looking at streamlining our drop-ship service. The system has allowed us to allocate our time more productively, reduce and manage costs, and provides us with a greater level of flexibility with our delivery options, but most importantly it has given a greater level of visibility which enables us to continue to provide a consistently high level of customer service.” -- Jon Asbury, Multi-Channel Development Manager at Halfords
