A 3PL, or third-party logistics provider, is a company that offers outsourced logistics services to businesses that need to manage their supply chain operations more efficiently.

A 3PL typically provides a range of logistics services, including transportation, warehousing, inventory management, order fulfillment, and freight forwarding, among others. These services can be tailored to meet the specific needs of a business and are often provided on a contract basis.
