Warehousing service issues can arise at a moments notice. Is you 3PL ready?
Surprises are great on your birthday…but not when you’re talking about warehousing service. As you may, or may not know, warehousing is critical for many industries. When you consider the scale of most supply chains, strategically located and efficient warehouses help save money and shipping time.
But, things don’t always go as planned. The larger the supply chain, the more likely things will go wrong. For example, have you ever received a “mystery pallet?” It was meant to go somewhere…just not to you. Every second that pallet is sitting on your dock, is another moment it will not be on the shelf.
The point being, your business success and growth may depend on the efficiency and professionalism of your storage and transportation services.
BENEFITS OF USING 3PL WAREHOUSING SERVICE
What made your company great? Chances are it was your product, and not your supply chain. Using a 3PL for warehousing services, transportation or packaging will let you concentrate on your product and core business operations. Finding the right warehousing and transportation partner for your company is essential for future growth.
1. 3PL has modern tracking technologies that are available for your business. Any product that is warehoused or transported to your customers is assigned certain tracking details that are inventoried and electronically registered.
2. You can scale your warehoused inventory. Let’s face it, your inventory levels drop and rise throughout the year. With a 3PL you can pay for the storage space you actually use.
3. They keep metrics of their efficiency, guaranteeing their employees and systems are best serving you. In the end, the cost savings is passed to you.
A warehousing service with a 3PL has no surprises. Your company products are warehoused by a trained staff and by professionals who manage inventory and corporate level products on a daily basis. Equipment is used that is state of the art. Your company may acquire advantages by using equipment that is costly but is a part of any warehousing service that is provided.
What Does This All Mean?
Warehousing services are critical for any business who sells products regionally, nationally or internationally. There are demands that may be impossible to meet without a team of warehousing professionals who are trained in inventory and tracking technologies.
