Benefits of Using a 4PL (4th Party Logistics) company

Implementing a 4PL freight management system can bring clients many benefits including access to a uniform process via a transportation management system (TMS). Here are some of the other main advantages of using a 4PL company

 

  • Advantages of Outsourcing Logistics via 4PL
  • Single point of contact
  • Open-book management, full transparency
  • Industry best practices benchmarking
  • Data ownership & visibility (reporting)
  • Material flows optimization
  • Substantial logistics costs savings
  • Gain in productivity
  • Global sourcing strategy & synergies

 

4PL’s act as a single point of contact between you and all of the logistics providers required in operating your logistics network. This is why 4PL’s are also commonly referred to as Lead Logistics Providers (LLPs). 4PLs can simplify the process, because they reduce supply chain functions being controlled by many providers in a myriad of ways.

 

Is a 4PL right for you?

With a single interface, you are not required to work directly with a large number of companies that provide your services. That keeps the time and money spent on your logistics lower, and can make it easier for you to keep everything running smoothly. Some of the most common reasons companies utilize 4PLs include:
Supply chain partners lack uniformity and consistency Lack of end-to-end visibility across supply chain Acquisitions or rapid growth have created an inefficient and fragmented logistics network Cultural alignment and success with the right logistics provider

As a 4PL, Millennium Logistics Management realizes that every client has different priorities for their logistics operations, and since we are non asset based and maintain low overhead, we exhibit flexibility in supply chain solutions that asset based 3PL’s do not.
