3pl – Third-party logistics

Many businesses choose to outsource their order fulfilment to a 3PL (third-party logistics) provider. If you are currently dissatisfied with your existing provider, you could be seriously impacting your customer experience and the success of your business.

Many e-commerce stores remain with their current 3PL provider because they believe it will be too much hassle to switch companies. Start-up businesses that have only ever worked with one 3PL provider, may not even know what red flags to monitor.

Outsourcing your order fulfilment to a 3PL provider means that monitoring stock will be taken care of automatically. Order fulfilment services often have an online system that keeps track of stock levels and identifies which items are selling well and which ones are moving slowly.

When it comes to the order fulfilment process, businesses must be kept in the loop from start to finish. From the moment your goods enter the warehouse to picking, packing and shipping, it’s vital that you can monitor the progress at every stage.

Pointbid’s online portal allows businesses to see real-time figures throughout the fulfilment process and gain real insight into how your items are performing. Choosing a 3PL company that provides solutions offering end to end visibility, ensures that you are in the know throughout the order fulfilment process.
