Key Takeaways: Launching a Successful 3PL in the Age of Tech

  • The transportation and logistics space is becoming increasingly competitive. To survive and thrive 3PLs and brokers will need to up their game. The following problems are still common in the industry:
    • Inefficient manual processes that drive extra headcount to make follow up phone calls.
    • Outdated, legacy systems that do not enable companies to automate processes.
    • Poor customer experience - too many touchpoints, poor interface, clunky technology, no system integration.
    • No real-time visibility.
    • Poor hiring practices and bad culture leading to high employee turnover (resulting in inconsistent customer service).
    • Bad relationships with carriers.
  • Launching a successful 3PL in the age of tech requires business leaders to take a fresh new approach that should include the following:
    • A superior customer experience from beginning to end. To accomplish this transportation companies must understand customer needs.
    • A tech-centric approach that delivers easy-to-use interfaces, automated processes, real-time visibility - a system that customers will want to use.
    • A collaborative logistics platform that is built not just for the 3PL, but for the shipper, suppliers, carriers, and any other organization within the digital ecosystem.
    • Eliminating manual processes with digital automation.
    • Contract or strategic customers who want their 3PL to become an extension of their suppply chain group.
    • A culture that emphasizes ethical values and win-win relationships with both customers and carriers.
    • Hiring, training, and retaining the best people – people who believe in the company and culture.
    • A partnership with technology providers who can provide a collaborative logistics platform that will give your company a competitive edge.
