Over the years, third-party logistics (3PL) providers who have traditionally built their business on providing warehousing and logistics services have been looking to position themselves as more agile and strategic suppliers by offering value-added services under one roof. Much of the 3PL VAS landscape, however, lies uncharted: How are 3PLs leveraging value added services to win new business? Which value added services offer the greatest growth opportunities? What factors are crucial to acquiring and retaining clients?
Adelante SCM, in a study commissioned by Nulogy, surveyed supply chain executives from more than 30 leading 3PLs to answer these questions, while exploring the strategic importance of value added services within the 3PL industry.
