Is Your Logistics Company Stable?
Is your logistics company stable? Are they going to be around for years to come? Does your logistics company have the background and customer base to ensure that they will not leave you high and dry? Unfortunately many of our customers come to us after having problems with other 3PL companies. We are glad that we can help them, but we cannot always fix problems that have occurred in the past.
Picture this situation… A 3PL company is struggling. They are throwing out low rates to try to attract business. You take the low rate and hope that everything goes okay. You pay your logistics provider. The company gladly takes the money, but they never pay the carrier. The company goes out of business. The carrier still hasn’t been paid. The carrier wants their money. So they go after you. Or they go after your customer. It does not matter that you already paid the logistics company; they have disappeared. The carrier wants someone held accountable.
Every dollar matters in this economy, and having your money essentially stolen by drowning logistics providers could be a huge detriment to you and your business. So our recommendation to you is to do your research. Check up on a company’s background. Check with their current customers. Make sure you are protecting your company.
I assure you that at PNG Logistics things are going very well. We have been in business for eleven years and are booming because we make sure to listen to the needs of our customers and give them full access to each step of the shipping process while providing expert advice.
