What Is Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) Fulfillment?
CPG fulfillment is a crucial component of the supply chain that focuses on the efficient and accurate delivery of consumer-packaged products to end consumers. It involves the careful coordination of inventory management, order picking, packing, and transportation logistics to guarantee that products are delivered in pristine condition and on time, thereby enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.
