3rd party logistics is when you enlist the help of another company (the 3rd party) to take over operational logistics. This includes warehousing, delivery, transport, and other services.
Third-party logistics providers are those you outsource logistics and other operations to.
Many companies from a diverse field utilizes third-party logistics, such as hospitals, bookstores, retail, and other industries. This is because transport and logistics can be considered a universal need for businesses that sell and purchase products.
The three types of logistics are inbound, outbound, and reverse. Inbound refers to resources going into a business, outbound refers to products going out of a business, and reverse is when an end product has to go back to its origin.
4PL is more general, while 3PL is focused primarily on the logistics side.
Transport and warehousing, mainly. These two are one of the more costly logistics activities and can be much cheaper to outsource than buying supplies and equipment necessary to fulfill them.
