warehouse selection + network optimization

optimized physical + information flows

Deciding whether to operate your own warehouse, distribution, or fulfillment operations or to outsource to a third-party logistics provider (3PL) is an inherently complex task on a variety of levels. A plethora of considerations must be addressed as part of a thorough quantitative and qualitative third-party logistics provider (3PL) vs. company run analysis that addresses at a minimum, the following issues: Current situation and conditions; Strategic and tactical goals; Customer service requirements; Capital and recurring costs; Financial and P&L impact; Flexibility and scalability; Control and risk.

ADT can help you advise you and your organization throughout this process. Our experience tells us that while you can outsource the execution (under the right circumstances and in the right industries and market channels), you cannot outsource planning and ongoing strategic management. Even the best third-party logistics provider (3PL) needs to be guided and directed to meet the changing demands of the business. Stringent performance metrics must be established and the operations must be continually benchmarked against the standards. Like all warehousing, distribution, and fulfillment operations, third-party logistics enterprises must be subject to continuous improvement programs in order to maintain a strategic advantage and tactical superiority
