4PL,3PL and Type of Logistics Service Providers
The 3PL (third-party logistics) services is not a new concept, but the 4PL (fourth-party logistics) services are the picture... Here are the details of all types of logistics service providers who are part of the entire supply chain spectrum like distribution, warehousing, transportation and procurement management.
1PL (first-party logistics) services...
The 1PL (first-party logistics) service providers transport cargo, freight, goods or merchandise, who are either Sellers-cargo sender (like a manufacturer delivering to customers) or Buyers-cargo receiver (like the retailer picking up cargo from a supplier). In this arrangement, the entire logistics and distribution process is managed internally by the business.
2PL (second-party logistics) services...
The 2PL (second-party logistics) service providers manage the transportation part of the supply chain and manage the company’s goods from one location to another. 2PLs mostly provide transportation services via leased or their owned vehicles. They also sign Contracts for transport freight. A logistics provider that only transports goods over a certain part of the supply chain could also be classified as a 2PL.
