Importance of Partnering with a Transparent and Trusted 3PL

In order to be a trusted 3PL company, you have to be transparent and open. This means being open about the logistic costs, pricing, and general operations. Trust is everything when it comes to 3PL partnerships. If you’re a 3PL that cannot be trusted then you will not be moving freight.

This transparency lets the shipper, and any other partner, know that you can be trusted. For shippers, it means they never lose sight of their freight and they know that they are getting what they pay for. For carriers, it means providing accurate information so that they can make a successful delivery and by following up on all promises made.

However, even with transparency, shippers should make sure that they have an idea of the market and where prices are at. This provides some additional context to the process and lets them know where they stand.

Through a partnership with a transparent and trusted 3PL, shippers can know that their freight is being managed correctly. It should also be mentioned that transparency goes pretty much hand in hand with communication. Without communication, you cannot have transparency.
