Combining 3PL with Print-on-demand
Customers often ask us what we can do to help them with non-Print-on-demand (POD) parts of their business. While our POD services allow businesses to produce custom clothing on demand without holding inventory, we understand that logistics and supply chain management can still be a challenge for many of our customers. That’s why we offer third-party logistics (3PL) services to help businesses streamline their logistics operations and save money on transportation, warehousing, and fulfillment. In this article, we’ll explain what 3PL is and the benefits of using our 3PL services in combination with our POD services to help businesses become more agile and competitive.
What is 3PL?
Third-party logistics, or 3PL for short, is a service that businesses can use to outsource their logistics and supply chain management to a third-party provider. This can include services such as transportation, warehousing, and distribution, as well as other value-added services like packaging, assembly, and order fulfillment. By using a 3PL provider, businesses can focus on their core competencies while leaving the logistics and supply chain management to the experts.
What are the benefits of using 3PL?
One of the main benefits of using a 3PL provider is cost savings. By outsourcing logistics to a third-party, businesses can reduce their overhead costs for storage, transportation, and labor. 3PL providers have economies of scale that allow them to negotiate better rates with carriers and offer more competitive pricing to their customers.
Another benefit of using a 3PL provider is improved flexibility and agility. Because 3PL providers specialize in logistics, they have the expertise and resources to handle fluctuations in demand and supply chain disruptions. This means that businesses can quickly adjust their logistics operations to accommodate changing market conditions or unexpected events.
How can combining 3PL services with Print-on-demand clothing help businesses?
By combining 3PL services with Print-on-demand (POD) clothing services, businesses can enjoy even more benefits. With POD, businesses can produce custom clothing on demand, without having to hold inventory or invest in large quantities upfront. This means that businesses can offer a wider variety of products and designs, without the risk of overstocking or waste.
When combined with our 3PL services, businesses can take advantage of a fully outsourced supply chain solution. The 3PL services means that all of the off the shelf products are stored, managed and fulfilled on demand alongside the printing and production of Print-on-demand products. This means that businesses can offer a seamless and cost-effective solution to their customers, without having to invest in expensive logistics infrastructure. Customers receive all their order in one delivery, rather than receiving multiple expensive deliveries.
In conclusion, using 3PL services in combination with Print-on-demand clothing services can help businesses become more agile, save money on logistics, and offer a wider variety of products to their customers.
