Learn the Practicality and Value Proposition of 3PL

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

3PL providers have historically provided warehousing services for companies that do not want to perform or support warehousing services. This has historically been in the form of providing space and labor for some partners and providing value-added services for other companies. This model has been changing and growing over the years in ways that are allowing the 3PL providers to change in the services and capabilities offered.

A part of this is the result of the market changing, especially in the retail marketplace where demands of consumers have grown along with a competition to support additional services and reduced delivery timeframes. The 3PL has stepped into this marketplace in a big way to provide services to their partners at a fraction of the cost for each partner to develop.

While cost-cutting measures have racked the marketplace and eliminated most if not all of the expertise within individual companies, these same cost-cutting measures have allowed 3PL’s to obtain and grow their internal expertise. This provides an island of expertise that is leveraged for the 3PL partners and customers to develop and maintain industry best practices to offer customers.

Join this session by expert speaker Tom Brouillette, where he will provide an overview of the changing marketplace and how the 3PL fits into and even drives the marketplace.
