Third-party logistics (3PL) refers to a business process that enables manufacturers to recruit different organizations for outsourcing activities related to supply chain management, including distribution and logistics. It assists in cross-docking, door-to-door delivery, transporting, orders fulfilling, freight forwarding, picking, packing, and inventory forecasting at reduced costs. This, in turn, aids enterprises in providing a better customer experience, ensuring scalability, mitigating the risks of product damages, promoting business growth and market expansion, and enabling the completion of core business operations. At present, 3PL is commercially available in varying transportation modes and service types, including dedicated contract carriage (DCC), domestic and international transportation management.
Third-Party Logistics (3PL) Market Trends:
The widespread adoption of third-party logistics across, retail, automotive, hospitality, construction, telecommunication, e-commerce, manufacturing, and food and beverage (F&B) sectors can be attributed to the increasing need for outsourcing major transportation and logistics services to reduce shipping costs and manage delivery time. This, in turn, is currently driving the market toward growth. In line with this, significant technological advancements, such as the introduction of supply chain management (SCM), cloud, enterprise resource planning (ERP), transportation management systems (TMS), international trade logistics systems (ITLS) and web-based solutions that helps in mitigating energy consumption and optimizing operational efficiencies is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the large-scale integration of radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips to enable manufacturers and consumers to track the product location, orders, and freight shipment with the support of various electronic gadgets are also propelling the market growth. Additionally, the sudden outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and the consequent implementation of mandatory lockdowns across the globe has facilitated the rise in the demand for third-party logistics services across various e-commerce and online platforms for inventory management and performing the delivery of products within stipulated time phrase.
