Why should Ecommerce Fulfilment clients use 3PL companies like CBF?

Third-Party Logistics (3PL) is a logistics service that can play an integral role in the growth and success of an e-commerce business. By engaging a 3PL service provider like the team at CBF, e-commerce businesses can outsource some or all of the logistics operations, allowing them to focus on the core elements of your business rather than dealing with complex supply chains and operations. But, what are the benefits of engaging a 3PL and how do you explore the tools and services offered by various 3PLs to help your e-commerce businesses grow?

The Benefits of Engaging a 3PL service like CBF Fulfilment

Using a 3PL logistics company to handle aspects of logistics can provide numerous benefits to e-commerce businesses. One of the primary benefits is the ability to manage supply chain and operational costs more effectively. CBF Fulfilment and other 3PLs are able to leverage our expertise and existing systems to establish efficient processes that can potentially reduce operational costs significantly. Furthermore, our knowledge of the industry and access to technology can enable businesses to keep up-to-date with the latest industry trends and take advantage of new technologies. This can help maximise profits and enable businesses to differentiate themselves from their competitors.

In addition to cost savings, CBF like some other 3PLs can also provide businesses with greater scalability and flexibility. This enables businesses to adjust their operations quickly in response to changes in the market or increased demand. Furthermore, utilising a 3PL can help reduce the risk associated with the storage, transport and delivery of goods, as the service.

Our storage is charged volumetrically. No longer do you need to pay for empty pallet spaces you're not using all the time. Using our online tools efficiently means you're working smart when it comes to outsourcing to a 3PL like us.

Multiple channel Integrations

You may be looking to or are already selling your goods through multiple marketplaces or sales channels.

3PL logistics companies that work efficiently will be able to use their in-house I.T knowledge and software to pull in orders from multiple places.  This will eliminate a lot of administration and if you're paying for expensive software to manage this process already, it will eliminate further integrations pulling down the same data and creating possible conflicts.

You will probably be selling via one of the following to attract sales:

  • Amazon
  • eBay
  • Shopify
  • Woocommerce
  • TikTok
  • Etsy
  • OnBuy
  • Wayfair

Each has their own processes but we can integrate directly and communicate to not only pull down order information but to transmit dispatch data including tracking numbers and dispatch notifications.
