Multiple problems - single 3PL (Third Party Logistics) solution...
Business today is looking for a single-source solution to manage warehousing and distribution. Constraints on cash-flow and floor-space mean that few have the luxury to finance and keep surplus stock on-hand. Finding the happy medium is a challenge that sees many struggle to strike a balance between tying-up too much cash in stock and satisfying the customer off the shelf. And It only gets worse when your business sources products from a large number of different sources, often scattered around the country, if not the world. Co-ordinating your suppliers to observe delivery windows which suit your business is difficult if not impossible.
It's a brave new world out there...
There's a whole new emerging technology in warehousing logistics and supply-chain management. Now, best-practice employs an array of sophisticated logistics 'tools' to better manage products and how they ultimately find their way into customers' hands. Factory Gate, JIT, Cross-Docking; all the logistics buzz-words that point to a company that has their house in order and something that your customers are looking for!
But to take full advantage of the benefits these new principles offer, you need to be in charge of your own transport and storage logistics. That means choosing a 3PL (Third Party Logistics) partner who will not only efficiently take charge of the whole process, but will have that efficiency reflect in your bottom line!
