3PL Central

3PL Central was founded in 2006 by John Watkins and Nancy Rohman while running their own 3PL warehouse. When they were unable to find an adequate warehouse management system (WMS) to manage their own inventory and operations, they built the first cloud-based WMS solutions designed for 3PLs. Powerful, flexible, scalable, and specifically designed to help 3PLs and warehouses grow to the next level, our WMS solutions now serve more than 750 customers around the world.
