Third party logistics (3PL or sometimes TPL) is the use by a company of third parties to outsource elements of the company’s distribution and fulfillment services.
The 3PL provider serves as a liaison between shippers and authorized road carriers who might not otherwise be able to find each other; they help negotiate the terms of transactions and select the appropriate shipping or transportation method required for each shipment.
What are the benefits of using a 3PL company?
The 3PL has several advantages, especially for growing. Moving to 3PL will allow you to minimize the costs associated with additional technology and personnel to control the supply chain.
The 3PL will manage your pickup, warehousing, distribution and inventory tracking. As a business owner, you get a knowledgeable partner to help you optimize your supply chain, stay on top of customer demand, and maximize your bottom line.
