Since 2012, PFS has provided PANDORA, one of the world’s largest jewelry brands, with a full suite of DTC eCommerce services. Given its product mix, global footprint and rapid business growth, PANDORA needed a partner who could not only handle high volumes efficiently – especially during the holiday season – but who could also provide branded pack-out services, security for high-value products and multilingual customer service.
Today, PANDORA’s solution features:
- A picking/packing solution within locked cages to deter loss and ensure products are handled with utmost care
- Branded boxes, pull-string pouches and custom packaging for fragile products
- Order management services, including payment processing and fraud management across international platforms
- Multilingual contact centre services throughout multiple countries
In 2018, PANDORA also participated in a pop-up distribution centre (DC) pilot program to alleviate the strain on their primary DC during the holiday peak. Through this program, we built two pop-up picking/packing operations from the ground up in only four weeks, one in Memphis and one in Toronto, with distributed order management (DOM) order routing guidelines according to the brand’s business rules. Despite the high throughput of the pop-up DCs, we successfully preserved the high-end pack-out services that set PANDORA apart. For the seven weeks that the pop-up DCs were operational, PANDORA saw a 50% reduction in shipping costs, a 50% reduction in shipping time and a 25% reduction in contact centre calls per order.
