With a 42% Increase in Year-over-Year Black Friday Weekly Order Volumes, 3PLs Seek Automation and Efficiency Opportunities
EL SEGUNDO, CA – December 3, 2020 — 3PL Central, the leader in cloud-based Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) built to meet the unique needs of third-party supply chain and logistics (3PL) warehouses, today launched a new suite of Consulting Services designed for 3PL warehouses to optimize efficiency, implement best practice workflows, and automate processes. Last week alone, 3PL Warehouse Manager customers saw increased order volume of more than 42% compared to the previous year’s Black Friday volumes, highlighting the need for warehouses to create scalable and optimized processes.
In a recent survey, 3PL warehouses cited managing costs (49%), driving operational efficiency (47%), and technology implementation / integration (45%) as the top three challenges within their businesses today—finding and retaining workers came in as a close fourth (43%). Designed to address these challenges, 3PL Central’s Consulting Services include a variety of options to overcome the unique challenges associated with efficiency bottlenecks, insufficient IT resources, and time to revenue for new customers.
One-time engagements include custom report creation, new customer set up, best practice consultations, on-site visits, and custom consultations. For warehouses needing greater support with technical integrations, Developer Enablement offers additional API connectivity to help warehouses accelerate technical WMS integration projects. For warehouses that need a technical extension of their team, Premium Account Services offers the skills of a product expert for technical and functional support.
“With 3PL warehouses experiencing unprecedented order volumes and the strain of increasing ecommerce demand, we’ve had numerous inquiries for process and program optimization to improve efficiency,” said Dave Spellman, 3PL Central consulting group vice president of customer success. “Additionally, some warehouses may lack in-house IT, Development, or System Administration staff to support strategic initiatives like new technology integrations and new customer onboarding. With our Consulting Services, 3PL warehouses can obtain expert advice on how to eliminate process bottlenecks and scale their business for new customer acquisition.”
