What is Third Party Logistics (3PL)?

Third-party logistics (3PL) involves the outsourcing of fulfilment related operations to an external partner. Areas often include storage of goods, inventory management, order picking, packing and shipment of orders.

Many organisations partner with an external source to fulfil these tasks as they can often be costly, time consuming and complex to manage in-house.

If you are struggling to manage your orders, working with a 3PL can help speed up the fulfilment process allowing you to spend time valuable time on product development and growing your business.

Order Fulfilment Process

Manufacturing
Your product will be manufactured in one of our Class 7 Cleanrooms which are certified to ISO 14644 for airborne particulate.

 

Warehousing
After manufacture we will store your products in our large warehouses as per your specific requirements. All goods will be subject to strict inventory control and you will have full insight into your inventory.

 

Picking
Once an order has been received from one of your customers, we will pick and pack the order. All orders will be traceable through our software which you will have access to. Packing slips and labels will be attached to the shipment, which can be branded with your logo and design if you so wish.

 

Shipping
Once the order is ready to go, we will arrange the shipment. Due to our knowledge and experience we do have a preferred set of carriers who we partner with and have negotiated preferential rates. However, we are happy to compare shipping costs from a variety of different carriers. You will receive order tracking information once the order has been shipped.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements or if you have any questions.
