This is such a great video! You're a great educator and love the art direction! But not all 3PLs have warehouses. For example, we don't own warehouses, but we source them strategically for our clients -- when needed. Our lack of physical assets allows us to be incomparably nimble and run lean to keep our customers' costs low. For us, it's not about assets, it's about relationships. Asset-based 3PLs can gouge their customers because of the lack of options that come along with partnering with an asset-based anything. Kind of like a monopoly. Since we source the market for our clients while leveraging our awesome reputation, we offer our clients more options at better prices. Email Jess at jjohnson@evanstrans.com if you'd ever like to learn more. We love talking shop!

Great, does it mean that the manufacture don't have inhouse warehouse. whatever they manufacture that will be sent to 3PL ware house and they maintain. Thank you.

Third-party logistics in logistics and supply chain management is a company's use of third-party. Its companies operate for the shipping industry to supervise logistic undertakings. A fourth party logistics provider selects the 3PL providers from the market which are most suitable for the logistical issues of his customer.

I'm wondering, how to find a 3PL that works with custom repackaging? In case of a customer return, I'd like to repack it in fresh tissue paper, use my gummed paper tape etc. Are there 3PLs that would do that or am I day dreaming?

Ok, I guess the answer is Shipbob, covered in your other video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AeKY9lTP80 ;)

Hi! I'm a university student who is doing the retail management couse assignment. my topic for the assignment is online shopping shipment and i found your video very helpful. Since my assignment is to create a video presentation, is it okay if i put about 30 secs of your video where you explain about the 3PL in my video? It is totally for a personal use and will not create a profit out of it.
Lumi (1 year ago)

I came for the logistics, I stayed for the well explained and especially the analog "effects" like the cardboard cutouts :D Well done! Proves that you don't need fancy graphics to be informative and entertaining ;)
