About the 3PL Market

3PL is a business process through which companies outsource their logistics and distribution functions to a service provider that specializes in handling logistics functions such as transportation, warehousing, and freight and forwarding. A logistics service provider that provides these services is called a 3PL provider. Often, 3PL providers go beyond logistics and provide value-added services like inventory management, cross-docking, door-to-door delivery, and packaging of products. They also provide strategic and operational value to many shippers worldwide. This logistics improves effectiveness by introducing new and innovative SCM.
