When it comes to your business, you're always looking for more ways to move your pallets, your products, and your business. More and more companies are relying on small third-party logistic (3PL) companies that take transportation, technology, and supply chain functions to the max to streamline your business and let you do what you do best.
Having a company like HWP Pallets move, transport, and operate your heat treated recycled wood pallets, ispm 15 pallets, or wooden crates gives you the utilities that you need to expand your business and make more money. However before making any agreement, there are a few things that you should consider:
When it comes down to it, don't pick a logistic company that is too big and doesn't have the time to manage your product properly and give your business their full attention, rather than waiting around or struggling to dedicate the necessary time to meet your needs.
Every business has a specialization- even HWP Pallets. Most 3PL's are better at certain aspects of the process, like moving products, transporting them to different areas, or storing your business in warehouses. 3PL's should be very willing to disclose their resources, and different companies are going to offer you substantially different rates when your needs match their product specs.
You need to deliberately lay out your needs and wants from your chosen 3PL, meaning that you'll need to make your performance requirements, pricing needs, and movement abilities. Be ready to ask and answer some questions. You need a logistics company to map out their process, and how they would be able to meet your movement needs.
Just because a 3PL says something doesn't mean that it's the truth. On the same hand, you should always tell them the truth about your company too. If they aren't willing to disclose information, move on to the next one. Our specialists at HWP Pallets swear on honesty as the best policy.
When it comes down to it, it's all about finding the best fit. You'll save a ton of money, move more product, and have time to worry about your own needs! Contact HWP Pallets for a free quote!
