What is Kitting?

Kitting is fulfillment lingo for the assembly of individual items into ready-to-ship packages, or kits. In the manufacturing process, kitting is often used interchangeably with the term assembly, and it can either mean to group raw materials together in order to create a finished product, or the assembly of two or more finished products into a larger group.

Standard Assembly – when kits can be assembled and stored for future distribution

  • Media kits
  • Product samples
  • Promotional items/literature
  • Instructional packets
  • New product launches
  • Game sets
  • Online reseller

Depending on the products you sell and the number of manufacturers you use, assembling kits at the manufacturing stage is not always an option, and kitting often has to be done after you or your fulfillment house have received the individual items from suppliers.
