Frequently Asked Questions

3PL stands for ‘Third Party Logistics’ and is the activity of a company hiring an external company (Third Party) to handle aspects of their fulfilment and logistics requirements. ‘Supply Chain Outsourcing’ is the exact same process as 3PL, but just using different terminology. Both activities relate to a business using an external partner to assist with aspects of their storage and distribution needs. Typically, eCommerce Retailers who have no physical shop or storage facility utilise order fulfilment providers to store, pick, pack, and distribute their items once purchased online via their eCommerce platform.

Using a ‘3PL provider’ or a ‘supply chain outsourcing provider’ for eCommerce fulfilment is a very common, efficient, and cost-effective solution for businesses of all shapes and sizes and comes with significant benefits.

Firstly, having your own facility capable of receiving, storing, and distributing your products can be extremely complex to set up and maintain. It is also significantly financially constraining on your company as you have to consider various fixed costs such as; facility rent, maintenance charges, staffing costs, and equipment purchase/hire. All of which you have to pay for whether you have goods to store or not. The location of your fulfilment operation facility is also a big consideration, with warehouse real-estate next to key distribution routes proving extremely expensive requiring long term rent commitment. The majority of businesses understand that their money could be far better invested in activities such as; product enhancement through research & development, increased marketing campaigns, and market diversification. All of which seek to add value to their customer.
