Why should a logistics company’s origins matter to me?
The roots and experience of a logistics provider will make a profound difference in the quality of its solutions and level of understanding its people demonstrate in your business. Most 3PLs come from a transactional transportation logistics background. While they can be strong in arranging air, ground, trans-oceanic or multi-modal shipments, their other logistics services may have been developed afterward, as complements to appeal to customers at either end of transportation. In contrast, flowm is an industrial contract logistics provider. We come from industrial roots and have a perspective and understanding of exactly how logistics will improve your productivity and profitability throughout the supply chain.
