The third-party logistics (3PL):
In the 3PL warehouse system, a third-party organization offers inventory management and distribution services to companies that require them. Clients without a logistics department often use the 3PL warehouse company’s services. Especially for the e-commerce industry, most of the companies do not have full resources for their inventory. Hence, providing an ecommerce warehouse is crucial for many businesses. As a result, the 3PL handle some or all of the clients’ logistical needs.
Some of the third-party logistical operations include:
- Inventory storage
- Inventory management
- Freight forwarding
- Shipping and distribution
- Customs clearance/declaration
- Packaging and warehousing
How does it work?
When using a 3PL model, manufacturers manage the supply chain but re-contract transportation and logistics to a 3PL company. There are many similarities between third-party logistics (3PL) and logistics as a service (4PL), but there are also significant differences.
Raw materials may be packaged and stored by a 3PL warehouse provider working for a farm before being sent to a market. Third-party logistics (3PL) service providers act as go-betweens for manufacturers and retailers.
