Course description

This webinar will study how to implement third party logistics (3PL) to outsource your logistics, warehousing and transportation to a specialist in the field, so that you can focus on your core products. The training program will also discuss why the key to success is collaboration, trust, compatibility, and fairness and why adversarial relationships do not work. Further, it will discuss reasons why large companies use a 3PL:


Transportation should be handled by a quarterly business review (QBR) wherein you both review the fuel surcharge (FSC) and agree to savings using the 3PL’s transportation management system (TMS) which optimizes lanes and routes for better mileage and transportation efficiency.

When it comes to 3PL, the best method to maintain/monitor a transparent and strong relationship is to mutually set up a win-win service level agreement (SLA) with agreed upon key performance indicators (KPIs). This document has to be reviewed frequently, quarterly at minimum, and monthly to begin with, as the two parties go through the honeymoon period. Some issues in the SLA/KPI are continuous improvement for cost reduction, quality levels, reliability, flexibility, responsiveness, customer service percentages, voice of the customer techniques, inventory management, inventory records accuracy, transportation, IT systems integration, safety, security, manpower, weekend work and many other issues depending on the customer and a 3PL.
