There are several advantages to using a 3pl warehousing company. Listed below are a few examples of the benefits companies using a 3pl like Hopkins Distribution are experiencing.
Many companies who use a 3pl warehouse logistics company find that they are able to maximize their warehousing. Eliminating your stand-alone warehouse in favor of a third party warehousing operation can work to your company’s benefit. A 3pl company can store most of your company’s inventory, pull and packs your orders and transport supplies as needed to maintain a consistently balanced inventory.
One great advantage for companies using 3pl services is a significant reduction in overhead. Analysis of contracting for warehousing services has shown that companies using this concept experience an average of 15-20 percent reduction in warehousing costs. Reduced expenses are reason enough to switch to a 3pl company.
The services offered by a 3pl logistics company can go beyond warehousing. Third party warehousing services include tracking and tracing orders, IT solutions and managing a company’s logistics operation. Hopkins works directly with the company to find out their needs and come up with the best distribution solution for you.
