What Is Order Fulfillment Center?

Definition

Order fulfillment centers are locations where companies process customer orders. These orders could be for online purchases, in-store purchases, and catalog items. When a company's order fulfillment system is connected to an order fulfillment center, the order fulfillment center holds the products delivered by the shipping company until they are released to the company and then delivers them to their location. This ensures that all customers receive their products as soon as possible.
