Third Party Logistics (3PL) companies started to spring up in the 1980s as a viable method of outsourcing logistics needs. 3PLs make it easy for large companies to get rid of various functions and assets. This is made in order to focus more heavily on their core business objectives. A 3PL can save your company millions of dollars and time, allowing you to dedicate more resources to your essential initiatives.
PLS Logistics Services, a non-asset based firm, is able to adapt to all clients’ needs because of our unique approach to the business that allows us access to thousands of transportation solutions across the country.
You ultimately trust this company to represent you. You want to make sure they not only meet your required needs but that they are a good fit for your company as well. We recommend you take the time to research a few different 3PLs. That way, you can pick one that best suits your overall needs and goals, and not just best suits your budget. You want to find a 3PL that you can work with repeatedly and build a relationship with.
