5 reasons why Manufacturers should consider using a 3PL logistics provider

Are you a manufacturer? Do you produce products for use or sale using labour and machines, chemical and biological processing, or formulation? Maybe you are involved in engineering and industrial design?

As a Manufacturing company you spend a lot of time looking for ways to be better than your competition. In a highly competitive industry, manufacturers look for any edge they can get over the competition.

3PL providers offer many services that will improve your supply chain and give you that edge you are looking for.

Here are 5 reasons why a Manufacturer should consider using a 3PL logistics provider to minimize transportation and warehousing costs.

1. Better Routing Management

3PL Logistics Providers are experts at executing proper routing management. Many manufacturers may not have a staff member who has any routing management experience; if they do, they are usually not experts whose sole focus is the task at hand. 3PL providers are equipped with the necessary tools to suggest the best carrier on a specific route, based on cost effectiveness, customer service and whether than can meet the manufacturer’s business needs.
