The MCM Top 3PL listing for 2018, a directory of leading third-party logistics (3PL) providers in ecommerce and direct-to-customer operations, has now gone live.
For the third year in a row, the editorial team at Multichannel Merchant has put together this valuable service for our readers. 3PLs have been growing in importance in recent years as ecommerce sales continue to skyrocket and more merchants look to outsource critical operations and fulfillment functions. A trusted 3PL partner can free them up to focus on other aspects of growing and managing their business.
The MCM Top 3PL listing includes company profiles on 40+ providers, vetted by our editorial team. Each includes information on their key capabilities and service offerings, top merchandise categories handled, the mix of B2B and B2C business and number of distribution/fulfillment facilities and their locations, and more.
By showcasing these leading providers in a searchable format, we’ve created a go-to resource throughout the year for ecommerce and direct-to-customer merchants looking to outsource their fulfillment operations.
Selecting the right 3PL for your business can lead to lower cost per order, better focus of management time, smoother scaling during peak holiday season, lowered capital investment in facilities and systems, reduction of time-to-customer, lowered shipping costs and easier distribution of international orders.
According to a 2017 study from Capgemini, 75% of shippers who use logistics services said use of a 3PL contributed to overall cost reductions, while 86% said it helped improve customer service.
