East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/18/2015 -- Picking Perfection, sponsored by Pcdata USA, brings important and interesting information to those in the material handling, warehousing, distribution, and manufacturing sectors. From best practices to industry data, this weekly communique reports on trend data, process improvement, and technology evaluations about picking, packing, shipping and profitability.
Pcdata USA noted that thanks to omni-channel requirements and growing customization preferences, the warehouse is increasingly a catch-all for kitting and packaging complex orders that extend well beyond individual item or pallet delivery fulfillment. 3PLs suggest new ways to execute orders, thinking of the different stakeholders they deal with as product moves further downstream. Whether asset-based or not, a 3PL's knowledge of operational best practices within the modern warehouse and distribution centers will make clear they know how to use resources creatively to come up with new ways to deliver a stellar product.
Keeping options on the table for value-added services will make 3PL recommendations valuable, which is a gold star for customers who may struggle to advance logistics responding to varying customer requests. Value-added warehousing and distribution contributed $35.9 billion in gross revenue to the 3PL market, according to an Armstrong & Associates report, making it a key source of developing further revenue potential.
