What To Consider When Changing 3PL Providers

Posted by Freeway Logistics

The decision to change your value-added Third-Party Logistics provider (3PL) can take a lot of deliberation and planning. It can also be a game-changer for your company. A new 3PL partner that aligns with your company’s goals can help your business move forward.

The following tips may be useful to help you make the best possible choice.

Consider changing from a transactional relationship to a strategic partnership.

Look for a Value-Added 3PL that commits to providing a tailor-made solution for your specific needs.

This is the most crucial step to bring consistent positive results to your business. Tailor-made logistics solutions should always be optimized to ensure your end-customer is satisfied, and to get the results you want.   

Make sure it offers your business growing capabilities.

The market is always changing and evolving; make sure your 3PL Partner can adapt as well; otherwise, your company will outgrow that partnership too soon. Remember, the goal is to establish a long-lasting relationship.

Evaluate their Accuracy Rate

Ensuring a positive experience for your end customer should be your 3PL Partner’s main priority. This will get positive reviews for your product, which will build your brand and translate into more clients and higher sales.

Also, your experience as a client should be second to none.

Choose a Value-Added 3PL Partner that believes in technology and provides you a warehouse management platform with easy access and visibility of your inventory at all times.

If you have decided to change to a new 3PL provider to handle your supply chain management, then it’s time to find the best fit for your business.
