Working with a 3PL Warehouse

Warehouse 3PL services are varied and can be client specific. You might find that a 3PL warehouse handles the storage, shipment and returns of your products. Third party logistics warehouses can take the pressure off you and let you focus on your product. 

Your warehousing services and logistics provider should be able to assist you with the following:

  • Pick up your product and move it to the warehouse facility: An effective partner should be able to move your product quickly and efficiently. If you're using a separate partner for transportation, you're likely missing out on potential savings through bundling of services.
  • Store your product: Make room and eliminate your storage needs by allowing someone else to store your products. We have warehouses and partner warehouses located across the country. In demand locations on the east coast, west coast, and all throughout the U.S. make it easy to store your product strategically.
  • Process your customers’ orders: Be sure your provider has technology that meets your needs and is compatible with software that your business uses. Our warehouses use Deposco, a cloud-based, e-commerce order management and fulfillment software. This allows us to process your orders with ease. Pick and pack, kitting and assembly and other services are available.
  • Shipping and more: Since we offer shipping services as well, you're able to benefit from cost savings without sacrificing quality. This includes drop shipping to both consumers and retailers, bulk distribution, and even marketing collateral distribution.
  • Handle product returns: Most businesses have to deal with returns in their line of work. Having a provider experienced in reverse logistics is key. We offer return logistics services to complete the full service offering.
