Understanding Inventory Forecasting and 3PL Logistics

When it comes to inventory forecasting and 3PL logistics, it’s important to have a firm understanding of the concepts involved. Learn more with this helpful guide.


Understanding Inventory Forecasting and 3PL Logistics

Every business could understand its inventory better. Through accurate inventory forecasting, businesses stand to increase their profitability. The easiest way to keep track of your inventory is to outsource it to a 3rd party logistics company that will store and manage your inventory for you.

The Importance of Inventory Forecasting and 3PL Logistics

Inventory forecasting can help businesses avoid major challenges. If you order too much inventory, you are using up valuable warehouse space. Order too little and you could run out of stock.

As you scale and grow your company, it gets more difficult to store and manage your own growing inventory. Inventory management systems are expensive and can be time consuming to set up and maintain. All this planning requires a lot of labor and manpower. Outsourcing your inventory management to a 3pl company can save your business time and money.

What is 3PL?

When it comes to expanding your eCommerce business, a 3pl company is your best friend. 3PL companies allow small eCommerce companies to focus on customer satisfaction, marketing, and growth.

They take care of storing and managing your inventory. They already have the equipment and the trained staff to monitor your stock levels efficiently and accurately. They can also take care of picking, packing, and shipping your packages. This dramatically reduces the amount of time and energy your team needs to devote to managing your inventory and order fulfillment operations.

Third-party logistics services are the essential link between the manufacturing operations of your business and the end customer. They ensure that the fulfillment operations of your business are running smoothly.
