What is Contract Logistics?
Contract logistics refers to outsourcing various logistics activities and services to a third-party provider. It involves managing and coordinating a range of logistical functions, including transportation, warehousing, distribution, inventory management, and order fulfillment.
Contract logistics may involve managing the entire supply chain, from procurement to delivery, or it may focus on specific areas, such as warehousing and distribution. The contract logistics partner is responsible for optimizing the efficiency and effectiveness of the logistics operations, ensuring timely delivery of goods, reducing costs, and meeting the client's requirements.
Contract logistics is a strategic approach to logistics management that enables companies to outsource and optimize their supply chain activities through a contractual partnership with a logistics service provider.
