Dear Sirs,

I want to outsource the whole Fulfillment process to a Fulfillment-company
to avoid all the logistic headache and to concentrate on marketing.

But isn´t risky for my business when the fulfillment-company knows my suppliers and source the products from them as well and sell it online?
For example FBA amazon. Can´t they do this in much bigger quantities and sell them on amazon itself?

Cheers
qwertz

Hi qwertz,

In my understanding, you will be the one sourcing and sending the bulk of your inventory to the fulfillment center, for them to take care of. They will not have any idea about your suppliers because it will be you, basically, as their client. And even if they will have access to supplier information, their fulfillment business is geared on earning from serving your fulfillment needs, and not on sourcing/reselling. :)
