Do you have to give up control of your logistics to save money? Answer: No! So many companies use titles like 3PL or 4PL. These companies will typically demand total control of all of your shipping decisions to potentially save you money. Sometimes jumping into a marriage or partnership before a long engagement period is a bad idea. Using a logistics consulting firm instead of inking with a 3PL might be the way to go.
I think consulting firms often get a bad rap. Knowledge is power and typically leads to efficiency. Efficiency when it comes to logistics has to equal savings. Maybe it’s time to stick your toe in the water with a third party consulting firm that isn’t looking for control of your business.
