Choosing a third party logistics (3PL) company to outsource your freight can be an overwhelming task.  When perusing through different shipping companies, they may all seem similar with their service offerings, which can make it difficult to narrow down the right selection. However, not all shipping companies are created equal. When deciding on the 3PL company that is going to provide you with peace of mind, qualify the provider by ensuring they have the following:

High-Quality Service

When selecting a 3PL company you’re entrusting someone else to ensure that your freight arrives on time to your destination. You want to make sure your provider has the logistics solutions needed to get your goods where they need to be on time and on budget. OCL provides 24/7 customer service and a dedicated customer service representative, along with a personalized network of carrier partnerships to identify key trade lanes that provide you with faster and reliable service.

The Right Technology

Make sure your 3PL company uses up-to-date technology to allow for transparency of your cargo during transit. The most important element for OCL is to provide outstanding customer service to our clients. With the right technology in place, our clients have continued peace of mind in knowing where your shipment is at all times and when it arrives at its destination.


An Expert Team

An expert team is a part of providing a high-quality logistics service. Any 3PL company that you consider should have team members with the knowledge and expertise to handle all types of shipments with care and dedication. If your shipment ends up in the hands of a team that isn’t properly qualified it could end up costing you exorbitant amounts of money. Knowing that your products are being taken care of by experienced logistics specialists during the shipping process is an invaluable aspect of outsourcing your shipping.

Top-quality 3PL companies provide their clients with quality service, an expert team who supports them, and the proper technology to ensure visibility of their shipments, giving clients peace of mind. It’s important that you trust a company that has the know-how to ensure your shipment is properly cared for during transit and arrives when you need it.
