If you do most or all of your shipments to your customers directly from your vendors, you have a challenge in keeping it all straight, and executing efficiently and effectively. Shipping many different items to many customers, from many vendors requires you to “be on your toes.”
You don’t want your purchasing people getting bogged down in turning out dozens of purchase orders each day, and you don’t want your accounting staff to be swamped with having to frequently examine each sales order to determine if it should be invoiced or not. But there is a lot of work involved in processing a high volume of drop shipments, and you don’t want customer invoicing to be inaccurate or delayed because of this burden.
