3PL refers to third-party logistics. It is a provider that handles all aspects of your logistics supply chain to enable a seamless delivery and processing operation. Since these providers are not from your business and are a separate entity of they are known as 3PL or third-party Logistics Providers.

Hi @Ishu Thanks for the information. Actually, me and my brother want to start a commerce business, but as beginners, we don't like to invest money on building our own logistics team, so we decided to start with the help of a 3PL ( wills transfer )provider for warehousing service, inventory management, and logistics assets to fulfil the client’s orders. Did you know about them and can we move forward? I appreciate any comments.
