What Is a 3PL Company and How Can It Benefit Your Small Business?

A third-party logistics or 3PL company handles the logistics and shipping operations for businesses. As a small e-commerce business owner, working with a 3PL lets you focus on growing your company instead of managing the ins and outs of order fulfillment.

What can a 3PL do for you?

A good 3PL partner, like Envoy, provides end-to-end solutions so you can scale your business. They handle:

  • Warehousing and inventory management: Envoy operates secure warehouses and uses technology to track your product inventory in real time.

  • Packing and shipping: Envoy's team packs and ships customer orders accurately and on time. They can even customize packaging with your branding.

  • Returns management: Envoy handles product returns, repairs or replacements and restocks items. This avoids the hassle for your team and customers.

  • Reporting and analytics: Envoy provides detailed reports and data on your shipments, returns, inventory, and costs so you have insight into your operations and can make better business decisions.

By outsourcing these crucial but labor-intensive tasks to a 3PL, you free up your time and resources to focus on sales, marketing, product development, and customer service. Envoy's experience, logistics expertise, and cutting-edge technology enable your small business to provide a great customer experience without logistical headaches. Isn't it time you started thinking bigger? Let Envoy handle the logistics so you can focus on growth.

Why Envoy Stands Out Among 3PL Companies
