FAQs

Get in touch today if you have more questions about our 3PL solution and features.

Third-party logistics is the process of outsourcing your logistic processes to help with E-commerce fulfilment. Many online retailers are looking to do this as it eliminates the strain of fulfilling orders at scale because a 3PL partner will take care of time-consuming processes such as inventory management, warehousing, and fulfilment. This type of service is not only more cost effective than doing your own logistics, but allows online retailers to save time, allowing them to focus on other areas of their business and most of the time, is more cost effective too. Read all our 3PL blog posts here for more info.

Simply put, online retailers invest in a 3PL partner to take control of their operational logistics – essentially adding an extra layer to your supply chain. Using a 3PL service has benefits, such as removing the need to have a facility to store your products and pay employees to run that facility because orders are processed and sent directly from their warehouse. Of course, having a 3PL does come with a price and costs associated with a 3PL partner will depend on which services you opt for – normally consisting of a choice and/or combination of storage, picking, packaging and delivery.

3PLs offer a large source of support for small-medium sized businesses when it comes to supply chain management. Partnering with a 3PL not only offers an extra layer of support, but mitigates risks and removes errors too. When unforeseen circumstances pop up, such as shipping delays or inaccurate orders, a 3PL is responsible for making alternate arrangements to fulfil your orders as quickly as possible. You’ll also be protected in the event of damage or loss of goods – which is a great piece of mind for smaller businesses.

The main difference between a 3PL and 4PL logistics is the level of involvement they offer. 3PL partners are better suited to small-medium sized businesses, whilst medium-large sized businesses will benefit more from partnering with a 4PL. This is because 4PLs manage and control all activities within the supply chain network, whilst 3PLs focus more specifically on logistics operations.

In addition to saving time and money and reducing strain, using a 3PL provider offers lots of advantages. Most online retail businesses experience fluctuations in demand throughout the year. Using a 3PL will ensure you have the support you need when you hit a peak – either expected or unexpected. Using a 3PL will also help you to provide an enhanced customers customer experience as when it comes to fast and accurate deliveries. This is because relying on a logistics provider means your shipping needs are taken care of, and 3PLs often have access to a large network of couriers, so you’re not limited by courier choice.

Every E-commerce business is unique, and therefore so are the logistical needs of each. Whilst some online retailers might only need support with fulfilment, others may need support across the whole process; from a customer placing the order, right through to the order being shipped. So, make sure you do some research into what services a particular 3PL offers before committing to them. Opting for a 3PL which has invested in technology to provide automated processes can have many benefits for online retailers – including enhanced customer experience. Mintsoft gives 3PLs real-time visibility and traceability of their client’s inventory.

3PL warehouse managers often provide a wider range of services than just logistics, such as warehousing and inventory management. The advantages of using 3PLs over doing logistics in-house include cheaper rates, better customer service, more reliable deliveries, the ability to serve international markets, and increased efficiencies.

3PLs are used by different companies who want to move their inventory. Some of the companies that use 3PL are Amazon, Coca-Cola, Nestle, etc. Using a software solution is essentially mandatory these days, especially where multiple clients are involved and customer satisfaction must be maintained.

The fulfilment services can be either inbound, where orders are dropped off by customers, or outbound, where orders are picked up by customers from the warehouse. Goods are often stored in a storage facility where it is easy to find products efficiently.

A business that is interested in using 3PL services should have a good understanding of its current business model and what benefits the company will receive from utilizing this new process. 3PLs are the perfect solution to load volume for companies that are experiencing high volumes of customer orders.
