3PL Leave It To UsRemember the old Greyhound bus slogan “Go Greyhound and leave the driving to us?” It was targeted to drivers to remind them of an alternative to spending long hours behind the wheel.

Third Party Logistics (3PL) companies are booming today because of the same idea- manufacturers and shippers of all sizes realize that in today’s complex freight transportation environment, the idea of “leaving the shipping to someone else” makes a lot of sense.

What are the benefits 3PL has brought to the table? Here are just a few.

  • We offer a variety of distribution options that often result in companies reaching markets faster

  • We’re scalable. As your business grows, we’re ready to handle the increased traffic

  • Businesses save on expensive and divergent expenditures, like storage and vehicles

  • Stock levels can more easily approach a just-in-time standard

  • The time and expense of managing labor for transportation removed

  • Risk of loss and damage are shifted to the 3PL company

  • Shippers can tap into a worldwide network of destinations with one point of contact

  • 3PL companies stay competitive by adopting state of the art technologies that keep shippers in touch with their loads in almost real time

Our clients are happy to be able to focus on their core purpose without having to worry about the transportation piece, and we love it when we can make business easier for them! Can we make business easier for you? Request a free custom quote to get started!
