Drop-Shipping

   

Definition: Drop-Shipping is a business logistics model in which after the (typically online) retailer receives a customer order via its website, the manufacturer undertakes the task of delivery to the customer site. In other words, manufacturers (the suppliers) are responsible not only for production, storage, packaging but also for delivery, while the retailers just need to concentrate on marketing.
