Grow your eCommerce Brand with a 3PL

3PL means Third Party Logistics. The role of third party logistics is to outsource some eCommerce logistic activities.

 

The sector began as mainly to provide 3PL warehouses to customers without the space to store their own products. Alongside this, these companies developed inventory management and packing and shipping solutions for their clients.

 

Today, 3PL can service almost all aspects of the supply chain, providing a range of flexible storage and distribution services to their customers.

The role of 3PL in supply chain management is to outsource some logistics activities so you can focus on the most important tasks for your business. Product development and marketing, for example.

Because 3PL providers are experts in warehouse management and inventory control, they can provide solutions that are far beyond the capabilities of many businesses. 3PL invests in the most up to date technologies, so you don’t have to. They also have existing relationships with couriers and use economies of scale to get the best deals on shipping costs.
