  • Tips for Knowing When to Outsource to a 3PL and How to Choose the Best Option

  • When is it time to Outsource?

  • If you find yourself short-staffed with a severe lack of free time, you may simply be too busy

  • If your companys sales are irregular - perhaps you offer a seasonal product or service or its not available year round

  • If your business is growing quickly, and it's difficult to adapt to the necessary changes in a timely manner.

  • Choosing the Best 3PL

  • Choose an established warehousing provider that can offer better capital access, resources, and leverage

  • Ask for a list of current clients that share a similar business model with your company

  • Read reviews: A good warehousing and 3PL provider should have an excellent customer service and a solid reputation

  • Consider the benefits when justifying a price and keep in mind that you oftentimes get what you pay for
