What Do Shippers Want From A Logistics Service?
When it comes to explaining what shippers want from their logistics providers many 3PL’s talk about supply chain solutions, intermodal transport services, and distribution facilities. While these are an important part of what makes logistics companies important and necessary, it’s not exactly what shippers are looking for when choosing a 3PL. They already assume a logistics service worth their salt can do all this stuff.
Shippers want logistics solutions from a 3PL provider who knows about their specific type of business. Every industry has unique needs and every business within that industry has its own set of challenges. For a logistics provider to have a positive impact on a shipper’s business they need to have a detailed understanding of those challenges.
No, it’s not necessary that the third party logistics company to have been involved directly in that business. But, having an idea of how the business works, and demonstrating that by showing how other comparable companies have benefited from their services is a good start.
Logistics Service Costs Matter to Shippers
As with anything having to do with transportation, moving, and logistics, the cost of the 3pl service matters. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that the 3pl must take a cut in pay in order to do business with the shipper. As a shipper, you want great service at great freight rates. And a good logistics provider who understands the value of return business will do everything within their power to keep your costs down while providing exemplary service.
