While this answer might be different for each company. Here are 3 examples that it might be time to make the switch to a 3PL
-Filling orders impacts running your core business
-Your inventory control is headache. Ordering too much or too little
-You need more people to do the job but hiring staff is not an option
Deciding who you use for your third party fulfillment is huge decision. Order fulfillment is a key part of the customer experience and you don’t often get a second chance if a new customer has a bad interaction with your brand. So doing your homework is really important. 3PL Bridge has already completed that task and can help you choose the right fulfillment company.

A third-party logistics (3PL) company specializes in warehousing and distribution. A 3PL operates with the goal of maximizing cost savings to your supply chain and helping you grow and scale your business. A partnership with a 3PL will allow you to leverage their expertise while letting you focus on your core business competencies.
3PL Bridge helps with the matching process to see how your company “fits” with the 3PL- culturally, values, relationship, flexibility and ambition. It’s key to be aligned on what’s important.
Last mile delivery is the movement of goods from a transportation hub to its final delivery destination, whether a residential or commercial address.
The most important factor in delivery is customer satisfaction. A customer who is waiting for a package might track it and see that it’s “out for delivery.” But if that package continues to be “out for delivery” for a long time, the customer gets impatient and may develop a negative perception of the company and its brand. The last mile is the last interaction the customer has with a brand.
