Over the past few decades, the logistics industry has undergone a significant transformation, particularly in the evolution of 3PLS, or third-party logistics providers, and that evolution is contributing to the growth of companies big and small.
Initially, our industry was primarily focused on transactional activities, like transportation and warehousing. But, as companies began to realize the benefits of outsourcing logistics, 3PLs like us started offering a wider range of services, including customized distribution, workforce, facility management, and reverse logistics. Today, 3PLs have become strategic service partners for many businesses, helping them optimize their supply chain operations, reduce costs, and increase efficiency.
In fact, companies that use 3PLs can save 30% or more on logistics costs compared to businesses that handle logistics in house.
