Tim Hoj, CEO of Warehouse Mobile Solutions the makers of WarehouseOS, recently explored whether or not using a 3PL (Third Party Logistics) firm is worth outsourcing a manufacturers’ logistics and supply chain management.
3PLs main focus is to optimize supply chain operations, which means they are masters of their trade. Up-and-coming businesses may not have expertise in this area, and it will cost time and money for the new company to gain the same understanding as a 3PL. This pushes the 3PL to innovate and find major improvements within the supply chain.
There are tools, like WarehouseOS, that can help to increase the likelihood of getting orders right. Such tools can show data on how effectively the 3PL functions to help decide if using that particular provider is worth it or not.
Additionally, weighing out the costs and benefits by doing an analysis for the short-term and long-term of the business. It may be more cost effective to use a 3PL now but keeping control of the warehouse and supply chain down the road might be desirable. Companies can go with a 3PL and not worry about it all. Using a 3PL provides a lot of benefits that can help focus on growing the business and can be a very smart decision.

WarehouseOS, a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.
A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the tablet solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
