Third-Party Logistics: Why You Should Use Them for Your Business

Traditional businesses relied on in-house staffing for every part and process. Still, several businesses use this model to ensure quality. However, the recent rise in third-party logistics providers has made outsourcing more common, especially in the eCommerce setup. Several startups and established businesses utilize these services to maximize profitability.

Components of supply chain management are the most frequent to be outsourced. From warehousing inventory to order delivery, 3PL companies may offer any combination of services.

Third-Party Logistics & The Benefits of Outsourcing

At ShipFusion, we provide comprehensive order fulfillment services. We strive to provide customized solutions so you can receive optimized services. Here’s why you should opt for outsource order fulfillment:

Access Resource Network

Since we provide services to a number of different businesses, over time, we have established strong relationships with other companies such as shipment carriers and business software companies.

Our long term relationships directly profit your company. For instance, you will receive the best rates for your required shipping locations and speed. And, we’re talking about reputed carriers, known worldwide for timely shipment.


Other than saving on shipping costs, you also receive warehouse storage space and inventory management services.

Opting for individual providers or hiring staff for these services can cost you a lot more with lesser productivity. You’ll also need to coordinate with multiple companies or monitor staff performance, adding further responsibilities on your shoulder.

Streamlined Processes

From ordering to product delivery, 3PL services ensure that all processes are streamlined. This is the key to business success.

Streamlining various processes is particularly necessary if you’re entering new markets, introducing new products, working for exponential growth or expanding otherwise.

Your business is only as productive as your protocols are efficient.

Easy Tracking

We make sure you receive timely updates on inventory through our inventory management solutions.

You will remain informed about order processing times and be able to track shipments through cloud-based software tools.

This means, you get real-time updates, enabling you to take action and plan business strategies accordingly.

Integrative Tools

We integrate all ecommerce platforms utilized by your company, ensuring that the process is seamless and stress-free for our clients.

We also help you combine sales from the multiple channels that are currently in use by your retail business. This way, no orders get left behind, and all products get delivered on time.

Shipfusion has multiple fulfillment centers across the US and Canada– making it easy to manage your eCommerce business.
