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.
At Europlaz we can assist you with your entire logistical process from manufacturing, storage, picking to shipping.
As our experience lies with medical devices and our 3PL service focuses on medical devices only, we understand the stringent processes which need to be put in place. After we have manufactured your product we will provide you with a comprehensive order fulfilment process that includes suitable storage solutions, order fulfilment, transparent inventory control and product traceability.
Our software integrates with many popular e-commerce platforms, providing you with real-time stock management and tracking. What’s more, because we deal with multiple carriers, we can negotiate the best price and service for your goods, anywhere in the world.
Your product will be manufactured in one of our Class 7 Cleanrooms which are certified to ISO 14644 for airborne particulate.
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.
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.
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 with who we partner and have negotiated preferential rates. However, we are happy to compare shipping costs from a variety of different carriers. You will receive the order tracking information once the order has been shipped.
