When Does Your Business Need 3PL?

If you are a business that is on the verge of growing, your needs may change over time. One of them is the need for 3PL services. Your inventory may need to be moved around from one place to the next.

However, some supply chain movements are not as simple as others. That’s why you want a service that will ensure that your logistics will continue to be smooth and painless, even if things are a bit complicated. We’ll briefly explain what 3PL is and when will be the best time to use it.

3PL stands for third-party logistics. This process involves the outsourcing of moving your inventory to another company that can get the job done for you. Not only does this also include the moving process, but also it deals with storage as well.

Having a 3PL service will be great for your business. Especially if you lack the funds and the resources to have it done in-house. These days, you don’t need to have everything under one roof for your business (such as your own logistics and warehouses).
When are 3PL services needed?

The use of 3PL services will be when you need them. Most of the time, you plan on using them for the long-term. Here are some instances where 3PL services will come in handy:

• You need one or more warehouses: You may not have your own warehouses to store your items. Plus, you may not be able to afford warehouses of your own. No need to worry about that. A 3PL will provide the storage space that you need for your inventory. Whether you need one warehouse or more, that will be taken care of. No need to search for real estate at all.

• You need inventory moved regularly: You don’t have the trucks or the drivers under your employ. However, a 3PL will have those ready and available. When you need inventory moved out of storage and placed elsewhere, we’ll get the job done. We’ll make the arrangements of how to move it and where it needs to be delivered.

• As your business grows: If you are starting out small, you may be handling the logistics yourself. It may seem unnecessary to utilize the use of large vehicles like trailer trucks. However, as the inventory grows, so does the need for lots of things. This includes storage space, the way it needs to be transported and more.
