Let’s talk 3PL! You might be wondering what 3PL is and how it will benefit your business, and we are here to tell you...

3PL (third-party logistics) is the process of using outsourced logistics services for your ecommerce business. A 3PL provider will store your inventory, pick, pack, and ship your products for you, hassle free. This takes logistics operations off your hands, meaning you have more time to focus on other aspects of your business and can avoid the complications of supply chain logistics (leave the boring stuff to us!).

GNOC as a 3PL

Companies such as ourselves (GNOC), are trained professionals in logistics and are here to give guidance and support to your business whilst promising to give full satisfaction to your customers when it comes to shipping. We want to help improve the response times of your orders and therefore your brand reliability and help reduce the risk of shipping issues that may frustrate your customers. By putting your trust in a 3PL partner, like ourselves, both your business and customer can benefit.

Partnering with a 3PL provider will eliminate your need to invest in warehousing space, equipment, and personnel. It also enables you to reach a wider customer base by utilising 3PL's distribution network. 3PL’s also use technology solutions that integrate with ecommerce platforms, providing real-time visibility into inventory levels, order status, and shipment tracking.

The Benefits of Third-party Logistics:

  • Cost saving: Working with 3PL will save you on warehousing costs, as well as improve efficiencies, and add value to your business. 3PL can also help save businesses from costly errors, which in the long term can save your business large amounts of money.
  • Customer satisfaction: Customer satisfaction is the main priority for 3PL and therefore the promise to ensure timely pick-up and drop-offs of orders means customers will be happy.
  • Access to expertise: 3PL companies have knowledge and expertise in transportation, documentation, import and export and shipping regulations. They are aware of the most efficient ways to help your business succeed.
  • More time to focus on your business: By leaving the shipping and inventory to 3PL it gives you the chance to invest more of your time in other aspects of your business and takes off additional pressures you might face.

There are many benefits to your company using 3PL as it is the most efficient way for ecommerce businesses to sell their products. Putting the trust into 3PL to run your fulfilment services can ensure things can run smoother for your business as well as reducing costs.
