Third Party Logistics (3PL) – 12 Reasons to Use One
If your business is like most businesses, your primary objectives should be selling and marketing your products and/or services, growing your business and increasing your profitability.
To maximize this outcome, you must choose whether you want to perform every business activity in-house, or if you should outsource the least productive, most labor-intensive activities, to free you up to concentrate on the growth of your business.
Your choice could be easy. You may decide to minimize costs and maximize growth. That is why we are in business and continue to grow and thrive. We provide Fulfillment Services that our clients do not want to pursue. We can provide “the backroom side of your business”, so to speak, so you can concentrate on growing your business.
3PL clients usually do not want to absorb the costs and time-drain of the following “backroom” responsibilities:
- E-Commerce storage and fulfillment
- Kitting and Assembly
- Crowdfunding and Mass Media
- Amazon Fulfillment
- Bulk Orders
- Inventory Management (Turn fixed costs into variable costs)
- Shipping Optimization (Aggregate and Negotiate lower rates with volume)
- High Value and Bulk Items
- Customer Service
- Multi-Warehouse Solutions (Massachusetts and California Warehouses)

When you hire a professional, a doctor, a lawyer, a CPA, you are upgrading your level of experience, automatically, yet remotely. They have your best interests in mind. When you are engaging a 3PL company, you are doing likewise, for your livelihood. What could be more important to your business success? You can go it alone or hire a 3PL who are professionals with highly sophisticated technology, storage and delivery techniques.
Do you maximize or minimize the seasonality of your business cycle, financially or labor-wise? If you have questions, you should consider a 3PL, who can even out the peaks and valleys, that can go directly to your bottom line, and translate to future growth.
