More and more companies are outsourcing logistics to a third party provider for two key reasons. The first is to take advantage of the expertise that the third party brings in managing cost effective operations. And secondly, outsourcing allows the warehouse customer to become more focused on its own core competencies, making it stronger in building its business.
Among the benefits: reduced staffing and vendor costs, improved customer service, higher productivity, lower administrative costs and measurable service standard improvements. It all adds up to a better value for the distribution dollar.
