If you are an ecommerce business owner, you may have heard the term 3PL. You probably then asked, “What is a 3PL?”

Order fulfillment is an integral part of your operations. As your business grows, you may find that fulfilling customer orders in-house is no longer feasible.

At this point, you’ll need to expand your fulfillment strategy; for many businesses, this means outsourcing fulfillment to a third-party logistics (3PL) company.

As a business owner, it’s vital to understand how 3PLs work in order to make the most of your ecommerce fulfillment strategy and grow and scale your company. Here’s what you should know.
