Benefits of a 3PL in the Trucking Industry

Benefits of a 3PL in the Trucking Industry Title

Many industries, including trucking, have experienced supply chain disruptions. Outsourcing a third-party logistics (3PL) provider can help you and your team gain knowledge and expertise, save time and money, scale operations, and become more flexible. By leveraging technology and IT solutions, 3PL companies' services, such as kitting and packaging, assembly and subassembly, shipping and warehousing, improve your product quality and accuracy.

Benefits

Scalability

The trucking industry's supply chain has been extremely unpredictable, with labor shortages and increasing transportation costs, as well as product fluctuations. Outsourcing to a 3PL provides inventory management, as well as the ability to upsize or downsize to meet changing market demands. Since 3PLs have direct connections to service providers, they can quickly respond to fluxes. At NewStream, we offer specialized warehousing that integrates seemingly with your existing system, allowing you to scale up or down warehouse space as needed.

Risk Mitigation

Things happen on the road that can cause delays or alter the speed at which items arrive on time. COVID-19 continues to cause supply chain disruptions, such as labor shortages, which result in shipping and production delays. At NewStream, our 3PL services allow us to limit any risk by being prepared for these situations and communicating with any parties involved in these events.

At NewStream, we  are experts in kitting, packaging, assembly, and subassembly, as well as properly assembling and packaging truck parts, securing physical and barrier protection, and streamlining your logistics operation to ensure parts and products are available for the production line.

In the trucking industry, having high-quality finished products is critical since it ensures that production operates properly. While it's critical to provide products to customers promptly, it's also critical to verify that truck parts and products satisfy quality standards. 3PL professionals use error-proofing technology and infrastructure to quickly assemble pieces and inspect the finished product for quality assurance.
