Why Outsource to a 3PL?

 The bottom line is that every business has a deadline. The fashion industry has a constant need to recognize what styles, designs, and items of clothing are in and out of style. They have to keep up with what is popular or they will fall behind, which can be costly. The best way to prevent this is to outsource to a third party logistics, or 3PL. Here are a few reasons why.

Don’t worry about deliveries

If you are managing your own supply chain, you are most likely also worrying about how to ship everything from place to place. 3PL specialize in delivering the products nationwide and you would not need to be worry about renting or hiring trucks and drivers.

Increase efficiency

3PL specializes in what they do. It is their jobs to look out for the companies they supply for, allowing you to relax. You do not need to worry about hiring or paying for additional staff to perform the duties for you. If there is every any disruption you can be sure that your 3PL will take care of it to the best of their abilities allowing you to continue working.


3PLs are also equipped with experience, knowing perhaps better than you do what you need and when you need it. They are fully aware at all times of the inventory and through tracking sales can predict what they will need to send you to sell next.

There are a myriad of benefits that can be seen when a company decides to outsource to a third party logistics partner. They have the experience necessary to better handle the situations and circumstances that arise while working in the apparel industry. In the long run, not only is it a decision that will provide necessary services but it will also save you time and money.
