Third Party Logistics & Warehousing

Third Party Logistics, or 3PL, is the sharing of resources in terms of receiving, storing and moving of stock from the point of manufacture or import to the end user. It provides companies with many advantages including:

  • the ability to increase or decrease your warehouse space according to your needs in a cost-effective manner
  • further cost-efficiencies involved with the economy of scale
  • best of all, it allows you to concentrate on what you do best
