As your company grows, you may have begun investigating more cost-effective and efficient outsourced storage solutions. With your cold storage facility, you may have heard they offer 3PL services — but what does that mean, and should you partner with a company that’s also a 3PL provider? Third-party logistics providers are beneficial partnerships for many businesses because they offer not only customized storage options but also added assembly, packaging and onsite integration services that can save you time and money and provide your business with added flexibility.

We have a state-of-the-art, five million cubic feet storage facility matched with superior supply management functionality.

Why Choose a 3rd Party Logistic Provider?
Today, with increasing competition and stringent operational regulations, it’s essential for your business to be as efficient and cost-effective as possible for added competitive advantage and to maximize significant growth opportunities. By hiring a warehousing facility with added 3PL capabilities, you can benefit from:
- Saved time and money: Having a storage facility produces significant costs, including those for hiring warehouse staff, advanced management systems, power and electric, cooling, insurance, and materials. A 3PL provider can better manage these expenses and take care of billing, paperwork, audits, training, and hiring staff to sufficiently manage a supply chain.
- Wider resource networks: A 3PL provider has a more expansive network of warehouses and distribution locations, so you’ll have the ability to expand your presence to new areas.
- Better and faster market expansion: With several established industry relationships, 3PL services can receive volume discounts for decreased overhead expenses and faster services, allowing you quicker expansion opportunities and more cost-effective operations.
- Added scale and flexibility: Throughout the year, the supply and demand chain often varies depending on seasonal changes, environmental factors, and new product releases. These factors affect the amount of inventory you may have at any given time, and a 3PL provider will have the necessary space, labor, and transportation needed for flexible storage options.
- Improved optimization and technology: A 3PL provider has the ability to make adjustments in the supply chain to achieve better and fast operations to make your company more profitable and timely, creating enhanced customer relationships. To achieve superior order fulfillment and make supply chain changes, 3PLs also have access to the latest and most advanced technologies and software. Now you don’t have to invest directly in these costly upgrades.
- Risk reduction: Storage facilities and 3PL providers have to be fully compliant with a wide range of regulations, including security, food safety protocols, insurance, and DOT safety ratings. With 3PL services, you’re always assured inventory is safely handled and maintained.
- Enhanced customer relationships: With faster, more organized, adaptive practices, you can have more streamlined output, which allows customers to receive products quickly and efficiently and lets you focus more directly on maintaining those connections.
