Miami, FL, October 6, 2015 – APS Fulfillment, Inc. (www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading and most cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, is commenting on a report that details the challenges facing third-party logistics companies.
“Outsourcing fulfillment and warehousing, often called third-party logistics, is the process of outsourcing business operations including inventory keeping, warehousing, pick-and-pack, customer service, and transportation to a third party or supply chain management company,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “Outsourcing also allows brands to take advantage of the fulfillment company’s international distribution networks and knowledge of importing and exporting.”
According to a recent report, third-party logistics and fulfillment companies face ongoing pressure in their efforts to achieve greater efficiency due to industry innovations as well as mergers and acquisitions. As a result, 40% of firms have reported increased rates, 29% say assets aren’t available to move shipments when needed, and 30% have to outsource their own work with larger third-party logistics to increase capacity.

“Warehousing and fulfillment companies are always trying to help their customers reach influential markets by removing hurdles related to international and national shipments and reducing costs,” Aultman adds. “Unfortunately, many third party logistics and fulfillment companies are facing challenges and are unable to meet growing demands.”
Aultman explains that APS Fulfillment, Inc. is located just minutes from the Port Everglades and a short distance to the Ports of Miami. It is also close to the Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport and just 40 minutes from the Miami International Airport.
