18 MUST ASK QUESTIONS FOR ASSEMBLY PROJECTS

If your program requires assembly or fulfillment, here are 18 questions to properly scope the project and estimate costs.

 

PRODUCTION

  • How many units will be shipped?
  • How many SKUs (individual items) are involved?
  • Is there any preparation needed to make “ship ready” (e.g., removal of polybags)
  • What is each step in the assembly process?
  • How many total drops will be needed?
  • Do you need any additional materials (envelopes, jiffy bags, boxes, etc.)?
  • What is the turn-time/deadline?

 

SHIPPING

  • Where is product coming from?
  • How many manufacturers/suppliers will be sending items?
  • Do you need to quote inbound freight?
  • Are outbound shipments domestic or international?
  • Are we shipping to residences or businesses?
  • What service level do you anticipate (ground, overnight, etc)?
  • Is there a need for trackability, insurance, signature upon receipt, etc.?
  • To which account will shipments be billed (your account, client, KBD)?

 

OTHER

  • Are there any storage needs?
  • Where should returns go?
  • Where do leftover materials ship?
