Key performance integration

Will your potential logistics service provider remain a valuable partner years down the road?

3PL Award 2012

Even if you're only looking to outsource one logistics service or technology at this time, consider whether a potential 3PL could integrate your logistics data with future partners. CTSI-Global offers solutions that integrate with Intranet / enterprise systems such as WMS, ERP and order management systems. Conversely, our solutions integrate with Internet / logistics systems, including the capability to connect with 17,000 carriers.

A TMS without integration functionality is a truck without axles. You may have the pieces to move your supply chain, but without the connections, you'll get nowhere fast.

"Strategic supply chain vision is a key measurement of 3PL excellence. For having that kind of supply chain expertise and vision, Inbound Logistics editors recognize CTSI-Global as a 2012 Top 100 3PL Provider," wrote Felecia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics.

To choose a 3PL company you need to know the level of service they provide as well as establish their objectives.
