The first step is to find a third-party logistics provider that you can negotiate and discuss potential efficient ways to cut costs and outsource the sector of the operation. There are some options:

For a 3PL provider, labor is the single largest dependency on how the operation runs smoothly, therefore the labor force may be multi-talented and stable.
