Reflections on 2016: ProPack's Place in the 3PL Universe

Jan 05, 2017
Heading into 2017, we take a look at some general 3PL industry trends, and how the bond between shippers and 3PL industries continue to blossom into mutually beneficial relationships.

As 2016 comes to an end, we would like to share some encouraging benefits from businesses that utilize a 3PL service.

The 2017 Third-Party Logistics study noted:*

• 75% of those who use logistics services (shippers) said the use of 3PL services has contributed to overall logistics cost reductions.

• 86% of shippers said the use of 3PLs has contributed to improved customer service.

• 73% of shippers said 3PLs offer new and innovative ways to improve logistics effectiveness.

As a 3PL provider, ProPack’s clientele currently experience the above-mentioned benefits, which has caused us to build great partnerships.

When we bring a company onboard, our goal is to build a meaningful business relationship. Once we fully understand their product and fulfillment needs we can then determine a solution that will increase the company’s bottom line and free up time and revenue to further grow their business.

“Researchers maintain that shippers, carriers and third-party logistics providers (3PLs) need to take a collaborative, problem-solving approach to service and cost as the industry moves toward bringing value-creating ideas to the table—not just capacity,” says Patrick Burnson, Executive Editor of Logistics Management magazine.**

Collaborative business relationships have been ProPack’s specialty for the last 25 years, and this trend will continue into 2017 and beyond.

For companies looking for open communication, flexibility, and innovative solutions to their 3PL needs, please contact us and we will be happy to be of assistance.
