Innovative Solutions for 3rd Party Logistics Providers

The dramatic rise in online purchasing to satisfy growing consumer demand has accelerated the need for retailers to offer a more varied, flexible, and efficient service. Faced with a continual shift in product ranges and customers demanding fast and accurate order fulfilment, the role of 3rd Party Logistics (3PL) has become more prominent as a highly effective resource to deliver retailer’s requirements in today’s fast-moving logistics landscape.

Flexible Automation for Optimum Efficiency

In a traditionally labour-intensive industry, to fully maximise the opportunities presented through the rise of e-commerce, 3PLs are increasingly looking towards Automation as a cost-effective way to enhance storage, fulfilment, and delivery services to entice retailers to outsource their operations. L-A-C Logistic Automation offers a wealth of experience in the design and installation of innovative automated solutions, tailored to the specific needs of 3PL providers. From initial concept to delivery of the final solution and beyond, L-A-C supports our 3PL customers every step of the way.

Automation solutions that offer flexibility are vital for multi-client use. A key focus for 3PLs is the ability to handle different order profiles for clients within the same solution, for example store replenishment with large volumes alongside e-commerce fulfilment where there is a vast amount of 1-2 item orders. With such wide-ranging requirements, 3PL services lends itself to the deployment of automation which can quickly and efficiently manage wide-ranging order picking and fulfilment processes, regardless of SKU profile or order volumes.
One of the core benefits to automation is removing the reliance on a scarce labour force. Automation also delivers enhanced productivity, reduced costs, and improved accuracy with zero errors as well as eliminating the potential for detrimental physical effects on a manual workforce.
Automated high-density storage solutions offer efficiencies for 3PL operations through the swift and accurate implementation of goods-in, put-away, order picking and final onward shipment. With real estate at an all-time premium, fully optimising the available warehouse footprint for storage is crucial for running cost-effective operations.
Deploying automation provides the necessary agility to handle changing product ranges as well as seasonal peaks and evolving online purchasing trends. Investing in the necessary automation to keep operations agile and receptive to change, will provide long-term benefits in a highly competitive marketplace.
3PL contracts are often determined by headcount and volume of storage requirement. However, with automation now a cost-effective option for upscaling operations to provide high-density storage solutions and swift order fulfilment, both 3PLs and their clients benefit from contract restructuring to focus on the overall cost efficiencies gained through the use of automation.
