3PL has become a rather common acronym today. It stands for “third-party logistics”, and applies to a wide range of different service providers, from shipping companies to warehousing options. In fact, a 3PL warehouse can deliver a significant number of important advantages to your business. What are these warehouses and how might you benefit?
What Is a 3PL Warehouse?
Simply put, this is a warehouse operated by a third party logistics company. As such, you receive storage space for products and goods without having to deal with warehousing on your own – building, staffing and maintaining a warehouse is rarely cost-effective for any but the very largest retailers.
Why Work with a 3PL Warehousing Provider?
You’ll find some important benefits available by working with the right third-party logistics warehousing provider. For instance, with a location just miles away from the Miami International Airport in Florida, you get easy access to storage from inbound planes, and the Port of Miami is also nearby for ship-bound loads. Of course, you can easily ship your products out via air or sea, too.
Another benefit here is that you get very affordable storage solutions without the need to manage or handle them yourself. For example, with DGD Transport, we’re proud to offer our clients rates starting at just $6 per pallet in our 80,000-square foot facility.
In addition to affordability and convenience, you also gain the benefits of flex space solutions. Whether you need short-term storage or long-term storage, the right warehouse can offer a host of services to add value, convenience, time savings, financial savings, and more. What’s more, you can create a customized menu of services based on your specific needs.
For instance, you might benefit from cold storage, shipment segregation, and both loading and unloading trailers. Another company might benefit more from the use of a container freight station and cross docking, while another might find bonded cargo storage and cargo manipulation to be more important.
At DGD Transport, we offer the ideal combination of expert warehousing services combined with state of the art trucking. Our goal is to be an all-in-one solution for our clients. We invite you to contact us today to learn more about our 3PL warehouse services and how we can benefit you.
