Ensuring Your 3PL business is Equipped to Handle Increased Shipping Demand
Research shows 26% of online shoppers abandon purchases due to long shipping times, and as a result many online and multi-channel retailers have attempted to meet consumer needs by adding new delivery options to their offerings. With same-day and 24/7 delivery services being added as a part of this, are you equipped to support your clients as a third-party logistics (3PL) partner in terms of increased delivery options - as well as an increase in volume of orders?

Why A Multi-Carrier Shipping Strategy Is Essential For E-commerce Businesses
If you are an online seller that has scaled your business, either on your own site or through utilising multiple platforms and markets places such Notonthehighstreet (NOTHS), Etsy, eBay or Amazon, then you’ll be keeping a close eye on revenue, percentage points, overhead and net worth. But if keeping costs low and profits high is important to you (why wouldn't it be?) then there is one area you may have overlooked when it comes to growing your business, improving customer satisfaction and cuting costs. The answer? Striking deals with multiple shipping carriers and implementing a multi carrier approach.

Building Trust With Your Customers: Why The Third-Party Provider You Choose Matters

The effects of COVID-19 on the high street and retail will be far-reaching, long after the storm has calmed. As well as social distancing measures being predicted to be in place in some capacity for months, it has forced many people into changing the way they shop. Unlike the doomsday predictions such as ‘death of the high street’, commentators believe this will prompt many small retailers to address their overreliance on being purely bricks and mortar.
