Importance of having a Reliable Logistics Service
In order to offer a great logistics service, you have to offer a RELIABLE logistics service. A great service has to be great at all times, not just some. In shipping, consistency matters. Reliability is especially important in 3PL shipping because you need to be able to be there when you are needed. It takes communication, integrity, and experience to be reliable.
Open communication allows for needs to be heard and expressed. It also allows the 3PL to relay any information that would be important to the shipper or carrier. Even if something does go wrong, a 3PL can stay reliable by communicating these issues and providing solutions.
Integrity plays a huge role in providing a reliable logistics service. Integrity is the ability and willingness to follow through on your word. It’s keeping the promises that you make, in other words, it’s being reliable.
Experience comes into play because, even if you are doing your best to keep all your promises, without experience you might just not have what it takes. Mistakes are always going to happen in shipping. By learning from those mistakes you add to your experience and know-how to prevent them from happening again.
