Why a Third Party Logistics Provider (3PL)?
Using your own commercial facility or outsource to a quality 3PL company can be a very difficult decision to make. With an adequate operational cost analysis, it can justify the use of a logistics company. There are many companies in the market with excellent service; however, choosing the correct one is key for a successful and long term commitment.
- Some companies do not factor the opportunity costs. What could they be doing instead of spending the time in packaging, handling products and storing them in their own warehouse?
- Potential clients do not consider the costs of doing the job in house and forget to include the total personnel working hours of their own warehouse, cost of space, utilities, etc…
- Many people do not want to give up part of their business outside of their location with concern that something might go wrong. Warehouse and logistics outsourcing have been in the market for years, and it is a proven business model that continues to grow as companies realize the benefits and overall savings.
We understand there are other 3PL companies in the market. GMA Logistics management team appreciates the opportunity of using our services.
