About Bursera

Bursera is a natural scent and aromatherapy brand based in Vancouver, Canada. It is an eCommerce brand that offers high-quality products such as Palo Santo incense sticks and essential oil diffusers. The brand doesn’t stop at essential oils; they offer aromatherapy accessories designed as luxury home goods, appealing to both sight and smell senses. As the brand gained momentum, shipping and order fulfillment became their major challenges.  

Challenge

As an eCommerce brand, Bursera had complexities in managing inventory, processing orders efficiently, coordinating shipping logistics, and managing shipping costs. 

Some bottlenecks that Bursera faced while scaling up included:

Inventory Management: 

Overstocking and stockouts during the peak seasons or promotional events were a major challenge for Bursera. Balancing inventory levels to meet demand without disrupting the service became impossible for Bursera. 

Order Processing Efficiency:

 In-house fulfillment was no longer an option during expansion. Order processing workflow to ensure timely and accurate order fulfillment, including managing incoming orders, picking and packing items, and preparing shipments, was crucial for customer satisfaction.

Scaling with Single Fulfillment Partner: 

While scaling Bursera didn’t want to partner with different providers for shipping & warehouses. They wanted a partner that could coordinate their shipping logistics, manage inventory and streamline order processing.

Shipping Logistics: 

Another obstacle for Bursera was taking care of shipping. They were looking for the right shipping carrier partners offering cost-effective solutions and efficiently managed delivery times. The right carrier, calculating shipping costs, and managing delivery timelines, were essential for Bursera to deliver orders on time.

Shipping Costs: 

Managing shipping costs and finding cost-effective shipping solutions while providing reliable and timely delivery options for customers posed a significant challenge for Bursera.
