Kitting is aimed to accommodate your business's unique needs for how items are being shipped to your customers. When your orders require our fulfillment center associates to specifically arrange the items in that order, it would need to go through the kitting process. Examples include:

  • Multiple component pieces are separate at inventory arrival and need to be assembled or put together.
  • You would like us to prepare the inventory in a particular way for your customers.

Note: To manage your kitting inventory levels, use reorder notifications  so you can be notified before your end-kitted item is out of stock.  

 Create a Kitting Request:
