One of the most significant advantages of working with a 3PL provider is the ability to customize your services based on your needs. For example, you can add or remove services based on high volume months, flash sales, or preparing for the holidays.
Then when you work with an experienced logistics company, like Beitler Logistics Services, Inc. (BLS), they can quickly adapt to your changing needs. For instance, if your shipment order has a last-minute change, the BLS team can respond quickly to help find the best solution.
