What Is 3PL and How Does 3PL Work？
What is a 3PL?
Third-party logistics (3PL) is the process of outsourcing logistics services. This includes anything that involves the management of one or more elements of a business’s procurement and fulfillment activities, including storing and shipping items around the world.
What Services does a 3PL Provide?
What is the 3PL Order Fulfillment Process?
The first step in the 3PL process is receiving the inventory at a warehouse after being made. As soon as the stock has been received by one of our warehouses, it gets ready to go into storage.
During the next phase of the 3PL process, your stock is placed in one of our 3PL warehouses for storage. Each stock-keeping unit (SKU) has its own dedicated location in one of our warehouses. Our scalable solution means there’s more than enough room to scale with you.
When a customer places an order, the fulfillment part of 3PL begins. If your CMS is through Shopify or WooCommerce, our app ensures that orders are automatically passed through to the warehouse to be picked, ensuring a seamless, automatic process.
For non-mainstream platforms, orders can be uploaded by CSV/Excel spreadsheet.
As soon as the items have been picked up by warehouse staff, it’s time for them to be packed! Honest FulPhilment allows for custom packaging, branding, and inserts for your products.
The next step in the 3PL process is to ship your order to your customer, whether this is by land, air, or sea.
We offer our shipping services direct to your customer and to businesses. Our tracking software integrates with your eCommerce platform to keep up to date with orders and their fulfillment.

One of the most daunting aspects of 3PL is the hidden fees and complex pricing structure. It is a challenge to figure out the different fees for each service, such as unloading, loading, warehousing, storage, shelving, etc. We believe 3pl fees should be more transparent, that’s why choose our 3pl service, HF’s 3pl service has only two fees: packing fee and shipping fee, this fee also applies to our 17 warehouses around the world, for more pricing details please check out our pricing page.
