Logistics services are all the elements of your supply chain, from the factory to the end customer. They include transportation from
manufacturer to warehouse, warehousing and order fulfillment, and delivery to the end customer.

Freight Forwarding

When you place a purchase order with your manufacturer, a wholesale supplier, or a distributor, logistics are involved in getting the freight from the point of origin to your fulfillment warehouse. Freight forwarding is the process of shepherding a shipment from the manufacturer to the fulfillment center.  Domestic freight forwarding includes arranging for trucking, rail shipment, or air transport. Transport for full truckload (FTL) or less than truckload (LTL) shipments of bulky or heavy items is almost always by rail or truck. Freight forwarders might use air freight for orders that need expedited shipping or high-value products.

Inventory Management

Inventory planning and management are foundational to every successful eCommerce business. Managing inventory can also be a pain in the neck. The best way to relieve the pain is to automate your inventory management as much as possible.  A logistics services provider may have an inventory management solution that integrates with warehousing services. For example, Red Stag Fulfillment’s inventory management system offers you inventory visibility, stockout projections, and data on order trends. An inventory management solution from your logistics provider can provide data to help you generate inventory forecasts and improve your inventory replenishment processes. The net result of better inventory management is fewer backorders and greater profitability.

Third-Party Logistics

Third-party logistics providers typically specialize in integrated operations of warehousing and transportation services that can be scaled and customized to customers’ needs, based on market conditions, to meet the demands and delivery service requirements for their products. Services often extend beyond logistics to include value-added services related to the production or procurement of goods, such as services that integrate parts of the supply chain. A provider of such integrated services is referenced as a third-party supply chain management provider (3PSCM), or as a supply chain management service provider (SCMSP). 3PL targets particular functions within supply management, such as warehousing, transportation, or raw material provision.

Supply Chain Management

The freight forwarder makes sure the paperwork meets local border control requirements before the container of furniture is loaded onto the ship in China. It also ensures that the container has cargo insurance in place. If the container isn’t full of couches and chairs, the freight forwarder might save Sit Still money by consolidating the shipment with other compatible goods. A few weeks later, when the container ship reaches port in the U.S., the freight forwarder once again makes sure the paperwork is in order so the furniture can clear customs. After the container arrives in the U.S., one 4PL service might be to breakbulk or split the container into LTL shipments for distribution to multiple fulfillment centers.
