Improve operations and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage
As a result of ever-increasing demand for global supply chains to deliver efficient and cost-reductive services or products, manufacturers have outsourced non-core activities. Such activities include transportation, warehousing, customs clearance processes, inventory management, customer service, and reverse logistics.
Thinnes Transport is a 3PL, a business that provides logistics services to customers for part, or all of their supply chain management functions. We offer integrated operation, warehousing, transportation and other value-added services and customize them to meet client’s needs based on the demands and delivery service requirements for their products.
Why consider using a 3PL company for your Warehousing and Distribution needs?
Provides on-demand storage for your merchandise
Warehousing ensures a regular supply of goods into the marketplace by being able to store goods when supply exceeds demand and then releasing them when demand exceeds just-in-time production. The provider can manage the entire process of inventory receiving, inspection, sorting, storage, and delivery.The flexibility of only paying for storage as it is needed, means you only pay for what you actually need, when you actually need it.
Removes the headaches of inventory management
A good 3PL provider has cutting-edge inventory management technology, and the processes set in place to effortlessly manage your replenishment handling. And because it’s all they do, they tend to do it better and more efficiently than you can for yourself.
Seamless links between inventory and transportation
The provider can manage the entire process of inventory receiving, inspection, sorting, storage, and delivery. Instead of shipping individual products from multiple sources, central warehouses help package and ship orders together as a complete order, effectively eliminating expensive shipping costs. Most warehouses provide processing, packing, and blending, and grading facilities, meaning, small business owners can save more by not having to pay third parties in the order fulfillment process.
Location is Key
The right warehouse location can make all the difference in effective and efficient distribution and transportation of goods.
