What does 3PL stand for?

3PL is the acronym for ‘third-party logistics provider’ and refers to outsourcing all or part of your operational logistics to a professional 3PL service provider.

3PL companies can provide various services, including warehousing, transportation, co-packaging, co-manufacturing, kitting, ecommerce, and other order fulfillment services to companies needing to outsource these services rather than handle them internally.

In addition to our local plant shuttle transportation and TL and LTL distribution services, Colonial Cartage works with our sister company Atlanta Bonded Warehouse, to provide public and contract 3PL services for various industries.
