Third Party Logistics (3PL)

Let’s face it, logistics is the necessary and complex backbone to any commercial enterprise – especially with emerging digital advances to eCommerce. Ensuring that your products reach their destinations in a timely manner, in perfect condition, and in a cost-effective way requires expertise. That’s where selecting your 3PL provider comes in.

With decades of experience in supply chain and logistics expertise, Ingredient Supplier is a leading third party logistics provider equipped to handle these complex processes that form the backbone of your operations.

What is 3PL?

Simply put, a third party logistics provider picks, packs and ships your products. 3PL provides the channel between manufacturing and your end customer, handling all supply chain aspects of your operation. Third party logistics providers typically offer the following services:

  • 3PL Fulfillment
  • 3PL Warehousing
  • Inventory Management
  • Picking & Packing
  • 3PL Shipping, Receiving and Returns
  • FTL & LTL Freight Shipping

Benefits of 3PL Fulfillment and Outsourcing

Outsourcing logistics to a third party logistics provider offers significant benefits in competitive markets. Similar to co-packing and contract manufacturing, 3PL allows the primary company to focus on their core competencies, such as sales, marketing, and product development – significantly increasing operational efficiencies.

Outsourced logistics providers possess advanced technology, large-scale equipment and industry expertise that enable more efficient inventory management and cost reduction. Further, 3PLs often benefit from lower costs on packaging, shipping and freight because their output is so high, which allows them the ability to offer their customers lower prices than they would otherwise achieve in-house.

By outsourcing supply chain and logistics, companies ultimately benefit from enhanced scalability and growth as they are not only able to focus on their core competencies, but they’re able to meet market fluctuations and seasonal demands with ease.

The key benefits of outsourcing logistics and supply chain include:

  • Increased operational efficiency
  • Cost reduction
  • Scalability and flexibility
  • Improved customer satisfaction through optimized logistics
