Top 5 Benefits of using a 3PL for Durable Medical Equipment Supply Chain Management

Healthcare logistics continues to grow more challenging and can become complex for companies trying to manage fulfilling orders themselves. If you’re struggling to keep up with fulfillment, it’s time to consider how you could benefit from a Third Party Logistics (3PL) provider.

Whether it’s kitting services, inventory management, custom return services, or a combination, most healthcare companies can benefit from a 3PL provider. Partnering with a 3PL provider is the key to help reduce healthcare costs while maintaining a high level of patient care.

Depending on your specific needs and company goals, 3PL providers offer a variety of benefits, including:

  1. COST SAVINGS: Partnering with an experienced 3PL provider you take advantage of their exclusive logistics relationships offering greater volume discounts and minimizing overhead costs. You can also save on additional warehouse space, staffing, and technology investments. 

  2. SCALABILITY: Depending upon what your needs are, 3PL providers offer many different solutions that are often customizable and scalable to meet your exact needs. They also have the flexibility to adjust with growth throughout the year.

  3. GROWTH: Outsourcing logistics will give your company more time to focus on its core while continuing to have timely deliveries and greater brand reliability. 

  4. EXPERTISE: Managing a supply chain requires expertise throughout to deliver optimal results. It is a very dynamic function and requires a vast understanding of business strategy, planning, inventory management and more. 3PL providers have expertise in all of these functions and more.
