3PL professionals

Also known as Third-Party Logistics, 3PL is an outsourcing service that logistics companies offer to businesses needing more storage, better inventory management, and customized shipping for their products. It also takes charge of packaging and reverse logistics.

In logistics, there are different outsourcing levels, from 1PL to 5PL. Each one of them has its own benefits and limitations. An important distinction between 3PL and 4PL (which are the most required and oftentimes confused between one another) is that third-party logistics’ main goal is to take care of the shipment process while fourth-party logistics services focus on the overall supply chain.

Logistics companies have many years of experience stocking, packaging, and delivering items of different sizes and weights. Because they provide varying truck sizes and trained staff, the cargo is loaded/unloaded efficiently and carefully.

With the best routes to be cost-efficient, a third-party logistics team saves time when delivering the items, even when expedited shipping is not requested. If there are any returns, 3PL takes care of that too!

The ultimate benefit is that you can expand your business and start delivering to new locations across states and countries with an experienced partner.

If you have an abundance of orders daily, don’t have enough space for your inventory, and deliveries are difficult to ship, then it is time to consider using a 3PL agency. Check out our informative blogs to further understand the advantages of 3PL outsourcing services.

With globalization and online orders rising, partnering with a logistics company is a must. More and more people are starting to buy online, B2B (business to business) is growing, and many companies are looking for 3PL services to fulfill the market’s needs. Partnering with a logistics company is a way to expand your business.
