What is Fulfillment and What is E-commerce Logistics?

The term fulfillment refers to the entire process of order handling for a goods transaction - from order acceptance to delivery to the end customer. Fulfillment includes: 

  • order acceptance
  • storage of goods
  • picking and packing the products
  • dispatch of shipments
  • returns management

In most cases, the fulfillment process is handled by specialised providers who offer online retailers a full-service solution. (These are then referred to as e-commerce fulfillment companies or e-commerce logistics companies.)

The terms e-commerce logistics and e-commerce fulfillment are somewhat narrower than “fulfillment” in that they exclusively refer to online businesses. The term “fulfillment” alone, on the other hand, also includes order fulfillment for physical stores, such as boutiques.

As the leading e-commerce logistics provider, DHL offers you numerous services for your web shop.
