As your business grows and becomes more challenging, so does the need to advance your warehousing, transportation, and logistics operations. Third-party logistics providers are service providers hired by companies and businesses for warehousing, order fulfillment, and reverse logistics. A 3PL service provider oversees a company’s supply chain and logistics operations. Many 3PL specialties extend from B2B to e-commerce, retail, and apparel. A 3PL vendor is responsible for scheduling and executing the inventory received, picking and packaging, and negotiating prices for shipping. A third-party logistics provider benefits a business by minimizing costs by offering full service, all under one roof.
Lower Capital Investment
Partnering with a 3PL provider reduces or even avoids capital expenses toward advanced warehouse facilities. It can support management’s long-term projects, which often become a distraction. A 3PL provider allows management to spend time on other things, such as controlling costs, marketing, and merchandising.
Change Fixed to Variable Cost
More than 50 percent of a business’s internal spending is related to labor, fixed investment in facilities, material handling, and transport and IT system requirements. 3PL vendors have these capabilities, saving your enterprise time and money.
Reduce Shipping Time and Cost
Big retailers such as Walmart and Amazon can easily make delivery in just two days while offering different shipping methods and maintain the ability to reach a variety of institutions. However, customers are influenced by the shipping time and cost when making a purchase. With a third-party logistics provider, small and mid-size businesses can reach more than 85 percent of the population, benefit from international shipping, and maintain low shipping rates.
Provides Scalability for Growth and Seasonal Volume
3PL can efficiently help you handle the demand during holiday seasons and expand your distribution capabilities to meet your goals. 3PL eliminates the time-consuming and costly activities of recruiting and training new employees during these demanding seasons.
