8 Things DTC Brands Should Look for in a 3PL Partner
Multichannel Merchant (April 14, 2021) – When your direct-to-consumer brand reaches the tipping point, where filling orders and keeping track of inventory is all you’re doing day and night, it’s time to look for a third-party logistics or 3PL partner. Since these companies specialize in inventory storage, packing and shipping, you can focus on more important things like developing your products.
When choosing a 3PL it’s important to do your homework but in the end, you’ll have to trust your instincts. Are they listening to you? Do they have a good understanding of your needs but also show a willingness to adapt? Is their technology where it should be today, and are they investing in tomorrow? The answers to these questions will tell you whether or not you can trust them with your brand.
