The process of taking individual items from warehouse shelves and assembling them into ready-to-ship packages, cartons, or kits is known as kitting. In terms of fulfillment services, assembly often refers to “light assembly,” which is putting together different elements of products or packages without the use of professional tools or abilities.
Kitting and assembly operations in fulfillment services are more difficult than simple pick and pack. To ensure efficiency and accuracy, it covers all areas of order fulfillment and necessitates the collaboration of numerous departments and individuals.
Kitting is the process of putting together multiple pieces into a single item, and it’s usually done in batches.
For example, rather than selling a pen and notebook separately, the two items are packaged together and sold as one item or a “kit”. Both items are then automatically decremented from inventory.
The goal of developing kits is to have a ready-to-ship set for when a consumer places an order, allowing the retail fulfillment process to go more quickly.
It’s vital to remember that kitting objects isn’t always a good idea. Consulting with a 3PL can help you figure out if kitting and assembly services are right for your company and if the project you’re working on will fit into their workflow. It’s possible that your manufacturer can do kitting more cost-effectively than a 3PL.
Is the process of assembling all of the components of a “kit” that have been assembled during the kitting process and preparing it for shipment. The pen and notebook, for example, are both gathered, packaged, and dispatched as a single item.
The kit is ready to ship after it is assembled, so there is less labor after the order is placed.
To boost efficiencies and streamline the process, kitting and assembly services are performed at stations where fulfillment workers finish the procedure in bulk.

A basic kit might sometimes contain 20 or more SKUs, necessitating the usage of a sophisticated order fulfillment system, warehouse management, and labor competency. Spainbox not only assists in the merging of numerous goods with various SKUs and the creation of a new SKU, but it also guarantees that the entire process is efficient and correct
Because a kit cannot be sent without any goods, it is critical to update and synchronize inventory information on a timely basis. The inventory information for each SKU will be shown in real time by the Spainbox fulfillment system, and your one-on-one account manager will notify you of replenishment as soon as it is available.
