3PL Provider: experienced workers for your warehouse
There are not too many 3PL providers in Belgium. But at LIS, that’s what we’ve been doing for years. Not only do we employ flexible workers, we also provide experienced supervisors.
At LIS, we know better than anyone how much work you put into planning and implementing the flow of goods in your company. But sometimes there is a need for reinforcement. To avoid a hole in the production line. Sometimes it is necessary to step up a gear…
When there is a difference between the planning and the predictions. When the capacity has to increase or when surplus stocks remain in your warehouse. You acknowledge the importance of your integrated chain management. So do we.
What is 3PL ?
3PL or third party logistics was created when the competition increased and the market became more dynamic for the shipping and transport companies. Instead of investing in all the necessary elements to meet the transport needs, more and more external parties (so calles third parties) were used for the implementation of the various logistics activities. As a result, the transporter retains control of the logistics concept but operational and/or tactical activities are outsourced to the 3PL providers.
LIS is a 3PL provider
LIS is also a 3PL provider. We not only provide the flexible manpower for the shop floor, but we also take over the daily management by making our Supervisors and Operations Managers available to our customers. Please contact us for more information.
Advantages of 3PL Logistics
Cost and time savings: Logistics is the core competence of third-party logistics providers. Providers may have better related knowledge and greater expertise than the producing or selling company, and may also have more global networks enabling greater time and cost efficiencies. 3PL providers must continue to invest to meet customer demand, something that producing or selling companies do not always have the opportunity to do.
Focus: Logistics outsourcing allows companies with limited logistics expertise to focus on their core business. Increasing complexity in business suggests that companies benefit from not devoting resources to areas in which they are not skilled.
Flexibility: 3PL providers are perfect for dealing with a temporary shortage of capacity without permanent investments of which the feasibility has not yet been assessed. This enables companies to manage their resources, including the number of employees, in a more predictable way and to convert fixed costs into variable costs.
