The parcel handler job description includes packaging, labeling, and shipping out small orders to customers and partners. Parcel handlers are hands-on key players with one of Dot Foods’ fastest-growing departments: single-case fulfillment.
In addition to organizing and delivering custom order pallets of products for distributors, Dot Foods also offers ecommerce fulfillment opportunities for our customers and suppliers. In these instances, we might pull just a few specifically requested items from our dry, cooler, and frozen warehouses. We’ll then parcel them up and send them via FedEx or UPS.
For instance, if you recently ordered a signature product from honeybaked.com, there’s a good chance your holiday dinner was picked and shipped from one of our warehouses. Pretty cool, huh?
And with so many small orders coming in every single day, we rely heavily on parcel handlers to manage the ins and outs of this process. Parcel handlers are responsible for packaging these single- or multiple-item custom orders and shipping them where they need to be in a timely manner.
