Podcast Key Takeaways
- In the podcast interview, Esther and Joe discuss the pain of picking the wrong 3PL.
- Picking the wrong the 3PL to manage transportation and logistics is a big hassle, but picking the wrong 3PL to manage your direct-to-consumer (DTC) shipments is a disaster.

- The best way to avoid the pain of picking the wrong 3PL is to spend the time to select the right 3PL.
- The right 3PL has the culture, leadership, processes, technologies, team, facilities, and locations to effectively manage your business.
