Companies are taking a more mindful approach to how their end-of-life IT assets are handled and processed. As companies become more knowledgeable about the value concept offered by ITAD service providers, they seek vendors who practice the same principles. In addition, due to companies’ demands to prioritize sustainable ITAD solutions, ITAD is changing to include value-added services such as ERP integration, portal customization for asset tracking, asset redeployment, re-imaging, and ESG reporting.
One vITAD (value-added IT Asset Disposition) service focus area is 3PL or third-party logistics. Third-party logistics providers are service providers hired by other companies for warehousing, order fulfillment, and reverse logistics. A 3PL service provider oversees a company’s supply chain and logistics operations. Many 3PLs have specialties in B2B, e-commerce, retail, apparel, raw materials, bulk goods, nutraceuticals, and wines & spirits. Third-party logistics service providers are responsible for everything related to scheduling and executing the inventory received, maintaining the warehouse’s stock, and ensuring it is in a proper condition, as well as picking, packaging, and negotiating prices for shipping.
Hiring a 3PL service provider allows companies to save time and benefit from accurate and precise services. 3PL providers have specialized experience and combine multiple services under one umbrella. Companies using 3PLs can expand their customer base, launch into new markets, and establish effective experiences for customers.
