With the continued rising cost of real estate, material handling equipment, information systems, trucks, fuel and just about every resource, it makes more sense than ever for companies to outsource their logistics needs to a competent 3rd-party logistics provider (3PL).
The advantages of outsourcing are well documented:
devoting capital and overhead to core activities
remaining flexible in times of growth or retraction
capitalizing on the innovation of your partner
leveraging the assets of the 3PL
