Maintaining a competitive edge in today’s supply chain environment is increasingly difficult as supply chains become more dynamic and complex. A dedicated capacity program is an excellent opportunity for businesses that require high levels of service, guaranteed capacity, and a positive brand extension. Finding the right third-party logistics partner is essential for improving the capacity strategy of your business. Below, we have three significant benefits of partnering with a professional third-party logistics provider.
- Committed Capacity
To ensure that your products arrive on time and damage-free, your company needs to implement a Dedicated Contract Carriage Program. A DCC is the most reliable, flexible shipping mode available, allowing shippers to pay a flat rate per truck and choose the length of time for which they can secure space on vehicles based on their needs. A DCC program ensures capacity, but it also meets the unique needs of your products, whether that’s a dedicated amount of space, temperature control, or mode of shipping.
- Protection of Freight Rates
If nothing else, 2020 has proved that the freight market can undergo significant changes in a short amount of time. Shippers need to have a clear understanding of how the freight market can change and a strategy in place to support their shipping needs. DCC agreements are structured on operational costs derived from engineering a solution that maximizes asset utilization, not the overall freight market. With a 3PL provider, you can easily manage your assets to align with your budget requirements.
- White Glove Services
The most important part of your shipping process is ensuring that your product reaches the destination. By implementing White Glove Services, you set a very clear standard for your shipping needs. White Glove is a solution for in-home delivery, installation, and set up to protect your product’s quality and the integrity of your brand. This service is designed to fit the most complex DCC networks’ dynamic needs, training drivers to focus on protecting the shipper’s brand and products.
