As a logistics company, we offer a full range of fulfillment services.
One of these services is the DCX, which is designed to meet the specific needs of Shopify owners.
Feel free to explore these options further and choose the one that best fits your operational preferences.
We have DCX WMS(Basic, Standard, or Premium Plan), and DCX Fulfillment
Nippon Express supports the logistics operations of companies running Shopify stores. We use a logistics web application, DCX, which integrates with Shopify via API to make the process smooth and easy.
There are two types of "DCX":
"DCX WMS", a cloud-based WMS where customers manage their own warehouse
"DCX Fulfillment", an e-commerce fulfillment service provided by Nippon Express.
Let's look at how DCX can help you grow your Shopify business at different stages.
Stage: When orders started to increase in your Shopify store
Potential Issues: In-house inventory management has become complicated. (but not to the point where outsourcing fulfillment is necessary)
Excel and other tools were used to manage internal inventory. However, as the number of shipments increased, so did the risk of errors.
The current warehouse management system is not connected to Shopify. So, there are a lot of manual processes like importing and exporting CSVs etc.
Since the volume of goods to be handled is not that large, it is not possible to have cost effectiveness through outsourcing of logistics operations.
We recommend the DCX WMS with a Standard Plan for customers in this situation.
Solution: Cloud-based WMS "DCX WMS” Standard Plan
No costly up-front investments required. It's a pay-as-you-go system based on base fee & shipping volume.
You can install it right from the Shopify App Store. So, you can get started right away.
There's no need to manually import or export CSV files, etc., because both inventory and order data are linked between the WMS and Shopify.
To use the "DCX WMS Standard Plan", you only have to pay a very low monthly fee. However, you'll be able to increase your warehouse productivity.
In addition, DCX WMS can perform at least the following tasks:
Manage replenishment points
Customize delivery notes/packing slips at no extra charge
Apply First In First Out (FIFO) rules when allocating inventory for shipping
Stage: The number of items and orders in your Shopify store is growing. Managing your own logistics has become a challenge.
Potential issues: Employees are unable to properly manage inventory because they are too busy with shipping and receiving
As the volume of shipments increases, the company's warehouse capacity and staff are unable to keep pace.
Seasonal order fluctuations occur and there is a need to increase warehouse capacity and staffing with a short lead time.
There is a need to improve the quality of the logistics flow, but you do not know where to look for a suitable logistics company.
If the workload exceeds the capacity of your in-house warehouse, we recommend that you try our “DCX Fulfillment", an outsourced inventory management and shipping fulfillment service from Nippon Express.

As the number of items shipped increases, the quality of the logistics provided by the existing fulfillment company decreases.
In addition to the online store, the company wants to sell products in brick-and-mortar stores, but its inventory management and system are a challenge.
