Zhenhub

Thanks to services like ZhenHub gone are the days where you're forced to waste time and effort with endless:

  • Spreadsheets
  • Paperwork
  • Emails
  • Skype calls

Contrary to popular belief, this doesn't have to the ‘norm.' It was because of all these grievances that Zhenhub made it their mission to provide businesses with a system that empowers them to: “get things from point A to B as seamlessly as possible so that selling something can finally become as easy buying it.”

So, they set about researching and listing all the problems ecommerce vendors face as they go about planning and executing their warehousing, packaging, and shipping processes — and sought to find the solutions.

You guessed it; it's these workarounds that laid the foundations of ZhenHub.

In short, ZhenHub provides a single cloud-based dashboard where you can plan and monitor all your logistics operations.

Now you have a brief overview of who ZhenHub is; let's take a look at their warehousing solution…

ZhenHub Warehousing

Zhenhub

ZhenHub has partnered with tons of reliable warehouses dotted strategically around the globe. All of these warehouses have a few things in common. They provide:

  • Affordable storage for your wares
  • A secure order fulfillment system
  • A distribution network tailored to the needs of your business.

To date, ZhenHub boasts 18 warehouses (with plans for more) across eight countries and four continents. These locations are deliberately located close to some of the world’s more popular manufacturers and ecommerce markets.

Then once you're up and running, you can then monitor your warehouse's operational KPIs. Not only that, but ZhenHub also provides an interface that directly connects you and your warehouse staff. This works wonders for enhancing communication and ensuring everyone is on the same page.

Some of ZhenHub's most notable warehousing features are as follows:

• You can automatically dispatch orders from the warehouse closest to your customers
• You can track the live transfer of your orders and other operational data in real-time.

This is why ZhenHub has fully equipped its warehouses with state-of-the-art facilities to keep your products safe and secure.

Pick and Pack

Every ZhenHub warehouse is run by experienced staff. They use ZhenHub's tried and tested system for accurately picking the product(s) your customers have ordered and packaging them, so they arrive in pristine condition.
