What is 3PL? It’s a bit of an odd acronym for third party logistics, which warehouses and transportation companies provide to many customers, lowering the cost for each as opposed to that company doing it themselves. Ideally, a public warehouse like us and others here in Memphis provide pick and pack, relabeling, order fulfillment, and other services to many different customers and they all share the mutual benefit of a lower cost by having us provide these services. Typically, it is much more expensive, cumbersome, and time consuming for a company to set up an entire division devoted solely to logistics. For most smaller companies, it is far cheaper to outsource logistics activities.
