02 May Third Party Logistics: Economical and Environmentally Conscious
We have talked a lot about how using a Third-Party Logistics provider (3pl) streamlines your business operations on this blog before, but did you know it benefits your wallet and the planet? Below are ways in which you can save some green and feel good about going green when you use 3pl providers.
When it comes to warehousing, not having to maintain your own space and staff can be a big cost-saving measure – but beyond that – inventory forecasting can help optimize your inventory levels and save money on inventory holding costs. This also mean less wasted inventory, which leads to less material waste from product production.
Volume & Expertise
3PL providers are shipping, trucking, and packaging at a high volume. This allows us to leverage this high volume to receive discounts, which results in lower overhead. That lower overhead then passes on as cost saving to you! This high volume also makes 3pl providers knowledgeable stay up to date with the latest developments in technology that create efficient processes. Efficient processes help minimize waste and underutilized resources.
Using a 3PL provider means you only use what you need. You can scale your space, transportation, and labor to exactly what you need at that time in your business. This scalability allows you to only pay for what resources you are actually using and saves you from wasting materials you don’t need.
