In Singapore, a 3PL (third-party logistics) provider fulfils the orders on behalf of your company. This is a cost-efficient way of managing inventory and distribution, which has become increasingly popular as businesses expand.
How it works:
Your inventory is to be sent by your manufacturer to your preferred 3PL warehouse, where it will be stored. After you have taken orders from your customers, the 3PL company will handle all retail distribution matters.
Freight transportation services offered by a 3PL Company in Singapore
There are 3 main transportation modes that 3PL companies use to deliver your goods to your customers, depending on the destination and type of good.
Air freight involves transporting your cargo via plane from country A to country B. This transportation method is often used for smaller time-sensitive shipments.
Prohibited and restricted items to be shipped via air freight include
- Flammable goods (e.g. perfumes, air freshener, nail polish)
- Corrosive substances (e.g. batteries, thermometers)
- Explosives (e.g. fire crackers, weapons)
Supply chain services offered by a 3PL Company in Singapore
Other than freight transportation, 3PL companies also handle other logistical matters.
Warehousing involves storing goods till they are needed for distribution. As businesses expand, it becomes more cost-efficient and productive to have an external warehouse to hold all inventory.
