Taking on a third-party logistics provider is a big decision, but there are a number of benefits – we hope the below will provide some clarity.

The decision on how to manage your order fulfilment can also bring a number of questions to the surface.  Can I do it myself?  What happens if I get really busy?   How will I know about all the legal requirements?  Will it cost me less if I do it in-house?  How will I get reliable people? Here's some reasons why 3G Logistics can help your business.

Preserve your time

  • When your business is growing it needs your attention.   Our services allow you to focus on the things that matter – sales, marketing, customer service and relationships.
  • We’ll take care of the full supply chain management, and let you take care growing your business.

Control costs

  • With a warehouse, full IT systems and processes already in place, using a third-party logistics provider will help control your capital costs.
  • When times get busy, especially around the Christmas period, you won’t need to run around finding temporary workers to fulfill your orders – our team at 3G Logistics will be on standby. 
  • Less recruitment equals less training and therefore less cost.
  • Because we streamline our processes constantly, we reduce time waste – and this cost is passed on to our customers.
  • Our full in-house service including courier distribution provides you the cost benefit across the supply chain from pick to delivery.

Reduce uncertainty

  • We don’t require any fixed contract or minimum spend.  So you can grow, increase or lower stock levels as you need to. 
  • Using a third-party provider means they will take care of any fluctuation in order fulfillment, so you don’t have to worry about fluctuations in cost.   
  • We’re in the business of delivery, so you can be sure that you will always get the best, and never have to worry about unreliable people.
  • If you do grow, take on new clients, or bring in new product ranges, you can get set up and going faster, and with less risk.

Stay on top of legals

  • The legal environment can be a mine-field, and sometimes it’s hard to know what you actually need to be aware of.
  • We are accredited to industry standards recognised for quality and environmental management.  Accreditations are expensive to achieve, but we’ve sorted it. 
  • Because we are accredited independently, you know that you are getting the best of services, and all the legal ins and outs are covered.
  • With changing and more stringent health and safety legislation, you can be assured we can take care of any regulatory requirements.
