Third-party Logistics (PL) is the outsourcing of various elements of logistics and distribution by companies to logistics solutions providers known as PL providers. A PL provider is a company to which shippers (customers that transport goods using PL services) outsource some or all the supply chain management functions of their logistics services. A PL provider is responsible for handling customer logistics requirements and performs transportation, location tracking, and sometimes product consolidation activities.
Thus, PL providers typically specialize in transportation, warehousing, and integrated operation services, which are customized according to customer needs. The need for efficiency in delivery, inventory management, and freight forwarding is propelling the demand for PL in the region.
