Third-Party Logistics / 3PL Logistics
What is third-party logistics (3PL)?
The concept of third-party logistics, abbreviated as 3PL or TPL, refers to hiring a third party to manage parts of the logistics for one or several supply chains. Third-party logistics can be operated on many levels, such as inventory management and order management. 3PL logistics is today considered to be one of the most effective solutions for optimizing logistics tasks. EDS is a freight forwarder who can provide third-party logistics solutions whose goal is to counteract reduced productivity in your supply chains and ensure a safe and efficient way to transport goods.
Effective 3-party logistics that reduce costs
3PL logistics is a cost-effective method for companies that need more time or resources to handle their logistics in-house. By transferring, for example, storage and delivery functions to EDS, you can save both time and money and instead focus on driving your company forward.
EDS provides both management and operational responsibility for all daily shipping. We operate in a worldwide network of partners and collaborate with the world’s leading players, resulting in favorable contracts and lower costs for deliveries. By choosing EDS’ 3PL logistics solution, you can thus lower your company’s logistics costs. No matter your logistics challenge, we can provide a solution that fits your company and current needs.
Advantages of 3PL
The main advantage of choosing third-party logistics is that you only pay for what you need. In this way, it becomes a cost-effective alternative and contributes to you being able to spend more time developing your business. An additional advantage is that an experienced freight forwarder such as EDS can negotiate on your behalf and ensure good agreements with shipping companies.
