With costs rising and a corresponding increase in demand by consumers, many e-retailers are leaning on their 3PL providers for more dedicated support. Those 3PL partners must be fluent in the ongoing changes of the supply chain landscape – offering strategies and recommendations to meet those unique customer’s needs.
According to a 2022 study by ResearchAndMarkets.com shared on Yahoo! Finance:
“With the increasing penetration of e-commerce in the United States market, consumers are demanding customized shipping along with real-time visibility of the shipments. These demands are driving the 3PL service providers to focus on providing overall network optimization and creating an agile supply chain through innovation and optimization for greater visibility.”
This begs the question … does your 3PL have the required expertise and novel technologies to ensure your specific needs are met in the e-retail space?
