Strategic delivery services don’t just happen on the road. You can save precious time at the distribution and loading dock, too. That’s where a 3PL with a transportation specialty comes in. When you work with transportation experts, you can rest easy knowing that your shipments are getting out in good time.
Outsourced yard management from a service provider improves the efficiency of your distribution center. Basically, the driver is in charge of moving freight from one dock to the next, depending on the receiving and shipping crews’ schedules, deadlines, and availability. So, if you have freight that needs to be received as soon as possible, the service provider’s manager would be able to open docks to receive that product.
