Is Outsourcing to a 3PL right for you?Download Now
The rise of e-commerce has changed the way those in the shipping industry handle their resource management. 3PL (third-party logistics) fulfillment specialists began being used in the early 2000s. It is now increasingly common for businesses to outsource their fulfillment needs by using a 3PL partner. In fact, according to a recent study by Armstrong & Associates, 86% of domestic Fortune 500 retailers and 96% of domestic Fortune 100 retailers use the services of 3PL's for their fulfillment.
