Advantages of a Third-Party Logistics Company

As logistics have become incredibly important over the last several years, what are the advantages of having a third-party logistics company versus an in-house logistics department?  By outsourcing your logistics, you are not only saving time but you are saving money as well!

By outsourcing your company’s logistics, you will:

  • Prevent delivery mishaps
  • Eliminate costly information systems and labor wages
  • Expand in new markets
  • Increase supply chain expertise
  • Provide your business and customers with quality supply chain management
  • Offer better web visibility tools for your customer

A third-party logistics company such as 3PD, can provide your business with the finest quality logistics around.  The software that 3PD has is superior to its competitors and can truly benefit your company.  3PD provides scanning, routing optimization, automated call-outs, exception alerts via web browser, e-mail, fax and phone, delivery point scanning, proof of delivery, management and analysis, electronic interface and product delivery visibility.  Outsourcing your business’ logistics will improve the performance of your business as well as moving it in the right direction.

Having a third-party logistics company can be beneficial because services can be customized and tailored to your individual needs.  Not to mention, having an in-house logistics department can be quite costly and can be difficult to maintain as technology is constantly changing.  3PD has the most cutting edge software and can actually take the time to provide you with exceptional service as this is our specialty.  Why worry about it or go anywhere else?  3PD is where your business should be.

3PD also provides business-to-business delivery, business-to-home delivery and job site delivery.  3PD also proudly offers “white glove” delivery services.  We truly focus on last-mile delivery and logistics.  See the 3PD difference.
