More about Third Party-Logistics Provider

by Michael Kotendzhi | Logistics

In an e-commerce driven market like Vancouver, British Columbia, choosing a good 3PL partner is extremely important for your business development. There are hundreds of companies in the industry, but which one is potentially the right one?

Finding a 3PL provider is a little bit like marriage. You are looking for someone who compatible to your taste and need with stability. Logistics is a complicated industry involving a lot of layers of operations but working together to achieve the goal with efficient time and least effort is what makes the partnership lasts. Especially when a 3PL partner can grow with your business with increasing volumes and changing, that is convincing the partnership can go strong and assured.

There can also be the situation where the partnership does not go as well as anticipated. A partner is when they adapt to each other’s routine and provide consistent results from the marriage. Sometimes, things go south when signs of failing start to occur. For example, frequent missed services dissatisfy the customers. Flatulate transportation rates are too unpredictable. Complex packaging needs are required between the transportation and distribution. The reasons that the expanding needs cannot be met by the 3PL partners which make the partnership mediocre.
