Is a 3PL right for your business?

April 20, 2021

Third-party logistics providers typically specialize in integrated operations of warehousing and transportation services that can be scaled and customized to customers needs, based on market conditions, to meet the demands and delivery service requirements for their products. A provider of such integrated services is referenced as a third-party supply chain management provider (3PSCM), or as a supply chain management service provider (SCMSP). 3PL targets particular functions within supply management, such as warehousing, transportation, or raw material provision. Services often extend beyond logistics to include value-added services related to the production or procurement of goods, such as services that integrate parts of the supply chain.
