Frequently Asked Questions

How can I select a 3pl company?

For you to select a 3pl company, First and foremost you should see that a 3pl company is providing facilities for the product you are selling.

  • For example, if your business is into selling apparel, then you should search for a 3pl company which should have all the facilities needed for the product.

    From storing to packaging to shipping, they should provide all the services concerning that product. Apart from that, for an ecommerce business, there are time constraints too to deliver a product, so for that, a 3pl company should have warehouses strategically placed to cover your target customers locations.

  • Likewise, If you are into selling fragile products – furniture or Electronics goods, a 3pl company should have different storage facility related to that product, picking and packaging also need extra care as well as shipping of furniture or Electronic goods.
  • As an ecommerce business, you also need Electronic data interchange (EDI) for the smooth communication between the 3pl company and your business.
  • Lastly and most importantly, Reverse logistics. It is the crucial part of any ecommerce business; this somehow slows down the operations as well as adds an extra cost; a 3pl company must carry out this part efficiently.

Having all these points in mind – Start Searching!

What should I expect from a 3pl company?

You can expect the following things.

2. When you need to scale up your business, which requires a lot of investment for storage, shipping then its time to hire a 3pl company. It not only gives you access to these resources at a minimal rate but also saves time.

3. When you are not able to focus on the core business, all other things like order fulfillment, inventory management, and shipping are taking up most of your attention.
