3PL Singapore

In Singapore, a 3PL (third-party logistics) provider fulfils the orders on behalf of your company. This is a cost-efficient way of managing inventory and distribution, which has become increasingly popular as businesses expand.

How it works?

Your inventory is to be sent by your manufacturer to your preferred 3PL warehouse, where it will be stored. After you have taken orders from your customers, the 3PL company will handle all retail distribution matters.

FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION SERVICES OFFERED BY A 3PL COMPANY IN SINGAPORE

Heavy and bulky cargo and machinery may be handled and shipped by a flat rack container, given that its collapsible sides can be folded to form a flat rack, hence easing the storage process.

Air freight involves transporting your cargo via plane from country A to country B. This transportation method is often used for smaller time-sensitive shipments.

 

Prohibited and restricted items to be shipped via air freight include

 

  • Flammable goods (e.g. perfumes, air freshener, nail polish)
  • Corrosive substances (e.g. batteries, thermometers)
  • Explosives (e.g. fire crackers, weapons)

Sea freight refers to shipping your goods by sea from port A to port B. This method takes longer than air freight; it is usually used for shipments that are not time-sensitive and to lower costs.

 

Prohibited and restricted items to be shipped via sea freight include

 

  • Perishable food
  • Counterfeit products
  • Jewellery
  • Animals or parts of animals
 

Do note that the regulations for each country will differ. Thus, it is best to check with a reliable freight forwarder.

Trucking is typically used in conjunction with air or sea freight. After the cargo reaches the airport terminal or seaport, it will be transferred onto vehicles to be delivered to its designated address.
Other than freight transportation, 3PL companies also handle other logistical matters.
Warehousing involves storing goods till they are needed for distribution. As businesses expand, it becomes more cost-efficient and productive to have an external warehouse to hold all inventory.

The process of custom clearance is tedious as it requires a ton of research to handle by yourself. An experienced 3PL company would know the ins and outs of clearing customs, from liaising with agencies to the submission of necessary documents.

Cargo insurance will protect you against any shipment damage or losses due to unforeseen events. This is especially important if your goods are big ticket, perishable and fragile.

COST-EFFICIENT

If you are getting a substantial number of orders every day, it would be more cost-efficient to engage a 3PL company. This allows you to handover logistics management to a third party while saving money on internal staff salary.

RELIABLE

A seasoned 3PL company would be equipped with the latest equipment and knowledgeable staff to maximise storage and ensure seamless distribution.

ENABLES FURTHER BUSINESS EXPANSION

By working with a reputable 3PL provider, you can be rest assured that all distribution matters are handled efficiently. This gives you more time and energy to work on other key areas of your business.
