Importance of Using a Quality 3PL
The 3PL industry is entirely based on service, so it is vital to provide a quality 3PL experience each and every time. This requires doing multiple things right. It means providing multiple points of contact, integrity, and being there for the shipper.
Providing multiple points of contact is key to delivering a quality logistics service. There needs to be multiple open channels of communication so that shippers and carriers can get in touch however they need to. It is on the 3PL to make the process as easy as possible and ensure that every need is heard.
Second, quality takes integrity. Integrity makes sure that every promise and request is followed up on. A quality 3PL service requires a team that cares about their responsibilities and shows it. As a shipper, you should be looking for a logistics service that you can trust. A company that can excel past your needs for customer service and quality.
Lastly, it is essential that the 3PL is always there for the shipper. When you have a carrier drop off or need a part shipped ASAP it’s good to have a quality 3PL in your corner. A company that has flexibility and open communication around the clock.
