Time Service - Integrated Third/Fourth Party Logistics Provider


Third party logistics (3PL) companies are becoming an important part of today’s supply chain. These companies offer services that can allow businesses to outsource part of all of their supply chain management function. The growth of 3PL companies has been driven by the need for businesses to become leaner, reducing assets and allowing focus on core business processes.

Deciding to a use a third party or fourth party logistics company is a decision that depends on a variety of factors that differ from business to business.

There are three types of Third Party Logistics Companies that operate today:

  • Asset Based
  • Management Based
  • Integrated Providers

Asset based third party logistics companies use their own trucks, warehouses and personnel to operate their business.

Management based companies provide the technological and managerial functions to operate the logistics functions of their clients, but do so using the assets of other companies and do not necessarily own any assets.

The third category, Integrated Providers, can either be asset based or management based companies that supplement their services with whatever services are needed by their clients.
