How can we help with 3PL?

We take great pride in selecting just the right third-party logistics provider for every customer, regardless of their industry or the nature of their supply chain. When we enter into a partnership with a third-party logistics provider, we gain the ability to scale space, labor, and transportation according to inventory needs.

Using 3PL solutions can enable a hassle-free transition. DFDS’ proactive approach to using third-party logistics providers ensures that your supply chain can adapt accordingly.

Be certain of end-to-end visibility

At DFDS, we of course handpick each and every one of our 3PL providers. Our tailored third-party logistics services meet the requirements and demands of a range of sectors, industries, and businesses.

Such as those who deal in automotives, forest and metal products, chemicals and seafood, as well as other goods that might require a steady cold chain and temperature-controlled environments.

Our sophisticated integrated IT systems give you end-to-end visibility across the entire supply chain, giving you access to detailed, real-time information all the way.
