What is Third-Party Logistics & Why is it Good for Your Business?

Eddie Stobart provides supply chain management for clients that is reliable and highly advanced in terms of the logistics technologies that we use. Third-party logistics (or 3PL) is different in that it provides integrated, warehousing, transport and operations for complete supply chain management.

The entire supply chain is managed through 3PL and can be applied across many different industry sectors.

How Does 3PL Work and What are the Eddie Stobart Services?

Third-party logistics functions in much the same way as regular logistics, but incorporates additional elements of the supply chain. We tailor our service to customer requirements, incorporating all the necessary aspects of our business to provide the smoothest and most efficient service possible.

Benefits of Third-Party Logistics

The main advantages of third-party logistics in our network are:

  • Costs - Lower costs are always appealing for the average business; with integrated solutions all your costs are integrated too. Which makes it much more centralised and easier to manage.
  • Time Savings - You save lots of time with totally outsourced solutions. This means the whole supply chain is in our hands, leaving you free to focus on other areas of your business.
  • Asset Sharing - Our extensive fleet and warehousing capabilities mean that businesses can take advantage of assets they couldn’t ordinarily gain access to on their own. 

The benefits are clear, and it’s also a good way for a company to outsource essential aspects of their business to an experienced and dedicated provider - so they can concentrate on the core values of their business.
