What is 3PL (Third Party Logistics)?
3PLs outsource the logistics part of running your business. You know, all the fun stuff you do on the daily like packing boxes and making multiple, sometimes frantic, trips to the post office. But here’s the catch: eventually, it gets way more complicated. This can quickly become a three-part chain that is at least three-ties longer than you may be ready for.

We have the capacity to complete over 10,000 orders per day, in addition to utilizing an automated order fulfillment system to assure efficient and precise picking and packing. Pay as you go allows you to only pay for the services you use with ShipA2Z. It's that simple.

Intelligent Storage & Third-Party Warehousing

We actually charge daily for storage, unlike the majority of third-party logistics and order fulfillment companies, so you only pay for the days you use. Additionally, each of our facilities is outfitted with a cutting-edge security system to safeguard your valuable inventory.
Maintaining hassle-free returns and exchanges is essential and crucial for maintaining customer satisfaction at an all-time high.And this is where our expertise in third-party logistics is useful. Our customized solutions ensure that returns and exchanges are neither time-consuming nor expensive, but rather a positive experience for both you and your consumers. In addition to accepting returns from a variety of product categories, we can also quickly exchange SKUs for different sizes and colors, perform product testing, assessment, and sorting, and accept returns from a wide range of product categories.
Custom Packing Procedure
Custom packing processes are available from ShipA2Z and can be used in a wide range of situations. Whether it’s removing manufacturer labels, stripping away bulk packaging, or kitting products into bundles, we can do it all. Occasionally, we’ll receive products that need to be modified, but worry not. While other 3PLs choose to focus on quick turnarounds at the expense of some wiggle room, ShipA2Z maintains enough flexibility to meet your needs without slowing down.
How Does a 3PL Work?
You focus on marketing and selling your products; we’ll handle the rest. Our software will automatically import orders by syncing with your online shopping cart through our unique API connectors. From there, we will pick, pack, and ship each order promptly. The best aspect is that our process is completely scalable and flexible, so regardless of how quickly your business expands, you can be sure that every order will receive the same excellent service.
