3PL Industry Logistics Costs

We had 17 total 3PL respondents, across several sub-segments of the industry. In general, 3PLs provided the strongest cost-reduction performance of any segment in our survey; however, it’s hard to fully analyze the results, as it’s not clear from what perspective the question was answered (their costs, their clients’ costs, etc.). There may also be some bias in the 3PL data, as it would be in the industries’ interest to show costs declining.

On the other hand, since logistics is what a 3PL does, and many have strong continuous improvement type programs, it certainly could be this group is in fact at the top of the cost improvement curve.
