Chicago 3PL / Third Party Logistics

Posted on Mon, Aug 02, 2010 @ 10:17 AM

In an increasingly explosive business, logistics providers continue to look for ways to define themselves and deliver the best services. But a lot of times these attempts to separate themself from the rest, leads to confusing acronyms that continue to be built upon year after year.

Here are two logistical terms that you need to know:

Logistics Service Provider – An LSP is really what most people would see as a traditional 3PL provider offering a combination of warehousing and transportation services or one or the other. As global and multi national providers enter the game, things have certainly changed, but the Logistics Service Provider at its core is fundamentally the same.

Lead Logistics Provider – An LLP is the new term that consultants now more frequently use instead of 4PL. At the most basic level a Lead Logistics Provider is nothing more than a Non-Asset Based 3PL, but there is certainly an emerging field of logistics providers that oversee and manage a portfolio of warehousing and transportation providers from a higher level.

At the end of the day you can call 3PL providers whatever you want but it’s still about storing and shipping things.
