Streamlining the logistics necessary to ensure your company’s success can be difficult to do on your own. A sound logistics solution incorporates the management of your warehousing logistics, order fulfillment, and shipping logistics. Trusting your logistics needs to a third party logistics (3PL) provider is a solution that can help you worry more about running your business. AFP Global Logistics knows how invaluable a 3PL company can be in partnering with businesses of all sizes. Here are some of the benefits you should expect to see when partnering with a 3PL company like AFP Global Logistics.

Versatile Solutions Tailored to Your Needs

A 3PL company can bring all of the knowledge accrued through years of experience and place that knowledge at your disposal. A great logistics provider is able to factor for many of the variables that can affect the logistics process. Transportation regulations and trends within the market can affect your bottom line if not properly accounted for. An expert 3PL company is able to use this knowledge and account for these variables to maximize efficiency and your profits. Also, their network of resources spans the globe and allows them to find the best routes and shipping methods, ensuring your freight arrives on time and on budget.

Great Customer Service

Throughout the entire logistics process, your 3PL company partner will put the needs of your business first. No two businesses have the same requirements for their shipping logistics, and we here at AFP Global Logistics understand that a customized logistics solution is the best approach for your business. When you work with us, we aren’t happy unless you’re happy.

Affordable Logistics Solutions

It may seem that working directly with carriers would be the cheaper option, but this is hardly ever the case. An experienced 3PL company such as AFP Global Logistics is able to use their relationships with various trucking companies to obtain competitive buy rates. These savings are in turn passed on to your business!
