Why would you consider outsourcing logistics? To maximize productivity of your entire supply chain. Most manufacturers recognize their core competencies and focus on what they do best. They opt not to lease warehouse space, employ warehouse personnel and maintain expensive warehouse equipment as well as a fleet of trucks. Third Party Logistics (3PL) allows businesses to invest dollars in areas of their operation that provide immediate returns. Let Supply Source help you maximize efficiency from sourcing to delivery.
With the cost of shipping LTL forever on the rise, many organizations are choosing 3PLs to ensure their dollars spent are on the business’s core competency.
What should you consider when evaluating your current warehouse environment? When you enter your warehouse, is the company’s commitment to safety apparent? Is there enough space to operate and maintain a safe work environment? Is your warehouse laid out in the most efficient manner to service the needs of your customers?
