3PL Leaders Deliver the Future for Their Customers

Diverse Customer Contracts Demand 3PLs Offer Scalability and Flexibility

Leading 3PL providers are tasked with the impossible: being all things to all clients, making their strategic planning around innovative robotic automation systems imperative in today’s digital economy. 3PL providers manage contracts of varying lengths with multiple customers, meaning product variety, volume, and throughput can range widely. To better meet existing and secure new customer contracts, 3PL providers must prove they can grow with their clients, seamlessly scaling up or down as demand dictates.

“CEVA is committed to continuous improvement and innovation across its fulfillment, transportation and supply chain operations. By partnering with Berkshire Grey and investing in its intelligent robotic automation systems, we can better operate our fulfillment facilities 24 hours per day to manage the excess volume, as well as scale our operations when needed.”

3PL Operational Challenges    

Labor, Labor, Labor  

Labor availability is a major challenge for 3PLs. Additionally, once hired, labor retention is harder than ever. Finally, labor wages are increasing at an accelerating rate, labor issues are a major impediment to 3PL operations built on manual processes and labor. 

Diversity Demands Flexibility  

3PLs need flexible approaches to serve multiple customers and future customers, so infrastructure investments need to be flexible. Berkshire Grey’s Robots As A Service enables that flexibility.

Dynamic Industries Require Scalability 

As eCommerce and seasonal shopping spikes happen, 3PLs must be able to leverage flexible resources.
