There are many benefits to hiring a 3PL (Third Party Logistics Company). Having a partnership with a 3PL provider seems to end with picking, packing, and shipping your products for your business. There are other businesses that just use it to storage. A lot of businesses forget that using a 3PL can help in more ways than just fulfillment and inventory storage.
Having a 3PL can help you focus on other aspects of your business. Your fulfillment partner should be there to silently take care of everything fulfillment. But in doing so, they free up your schedule because you don’t have to worry about the fulfillment side of your business. Yes, it is good to check in to make sure your products get to their destinations safe and sound, but it should not have to take up all your time.
You can utilize your newly found free time to focus on other parts of your company that will help scale your business. Things like the financial side of your business, taking care of your customers, and finally, marketing.
Having a great 3PL can help you improve the marketing for your business in a couple different ways. As mentioned before, they will help you by giving you back time that you were using fulfilling your orders. You can use that very valuable time to refocus on your marketing efforts. Having a quality 3PL to rely on, you can feel confident that when it comes to your marketing efforts, you are able to keep your word.
Having a 3PL on your side has many benefits. More time for marketing is just a fraction of the benefits to using a 3PL. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. Here at Launch Fulfillment, we value your time. Let us free up that time for you.
