The obvious benefit to using a third-party logistics (3PL) company to outsource fulfillment is that it saves you from having to do the work yourself. But the benefits go deeper than that.
When you hire an outsourced fulfillment services provider, not only do you get warehouse space, you also get people responsible for running the fulfillment center. When you fulfill and ship your own orders, you’ll likely need to hire staff as you scale. Managing staff takes time. If your business is still in flux, you may be wary of promising someone a job. Instead, you can outsource the work to a logistics company and let them be responsible for finding and hiring good people.
Each 3PL has a whole team of logistics experts and support staff who are there to help you along the way. They manage all of the labor needed for receiving, inventory management, and order processing and shipping—giving you a new level of agility you might not achieve so easily on your own. Your time is better spent on managing and optimizing across the company—not bogged down in the logistics of order fulfillment. When you let someone else take care of logistical details, you can focus on the things that have a greater impact on your bottom line.
