With more than 100 years of experience among its senior management, Tri-National Inc. is considered a premier transportation provider under NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). Included in Tri-National Inc.’s services are truckload third-party logistics.

Using a third-party logistics (3PL) company means outsourcing one’s transportation needs. If a business decides to use a 3PL, there are steps it can take to get the most out of the relationship.

Businesses and 3PL services should keep their performances on record and be as transparent as possible about their operations. Both parties must adhere to quality control standards and monitor performance using agreed-upon benchmarks.

Apart from looking at the data and statistics, both parties must also strive to look at each other’s sites, to check the credibility and operations of each business. Merchants should visit 3PL sites to ensure that their services can accommodate shipping, packing, and protection of products for transportation, and to discuss any needed changes.
