3PL logistics (Third Party Logistics) is also sometimes called complex logistics services. This service is relevant when the client needs not only freight transport but also other transport services. Previously, many manufacturing and trading companies thought that the logistics department is a financially optimal solution, however, today only a few companies can afford it. The reason is simple – it is more economically reasonable to transfer the jobs of logistics department maintenance to a reliable and experienced company.
To own a logistics department means not only a possibility to transport cargoes independently. This also means transport fleet development and management, hiring of qualified professionals and ensuring that the cargo is transported complying to all requirements and laws. These processes are difficult and complicated to the non-logistics companies. This is why it is worth to entrust necessary processes to the external partner – transport professional that understands 3PL logistics. Located near Panevėžys bypass, UAB Siramis is a highly skilled company working in the transport market for two decades, has a fleet of 100 new and almost new tractor units and logistics warehouse.
3PL logistics covers a wide range of activities including taking over, storage and delivery. UAB Siramis has a lot of experience and knowledge in the area and offers a much wider range of 3PL logistics. The transport company can take over the cargo from the supplier, pack it, store and deliver. And not only that.
