3PL Central is excited to introduce the 3PL Intelligence Ecosystem with new partner and developer programs that build upon the 3PL Central Platform. The 3PL Intelligence Ecosystem empowers customers, partners, and developers to grow and thrive in our dynamic industry by providing the means to build and control their fulfillment network through one interface. This announcement is part of our 3PL Intelligence Initiative, aiming to provide customers with all the right tools to move from paper-based workflows to a modern, paperless warehouse.
The 3PL Intelligence Ecosystem is comprised of a powerful network of customers, partners, and developers built around the 3PL Central Platform. Together, this ecosystem strives to enable intelligent distribution and drive growth for our customers.
As third-party logistics warehouses scale their businesses, the need to inevitably support more orders and customers will require updates to their technology solutions and services. Systems that originally facilitated growth may not be enough to prepare warehouses for expansion while keeping operations efficient to meet growing demands. Many 3PLs will need to supplement services by partnering with industry leaders and implementing best practices – leveraging more solutions and services, integrations, and other resources.
Offering access to the resources needed to efficiently operate and scale, increase customer satisfaction, and quickly deliver value, the expanding 3PL Intelligence Ecosystem already includes:
“We leverage the 3PL Intelligence Ecosystem to integrate with other key players in logistics through one interface,” said Manny Arriaza, head of management information systems at Woodland Group. “With pre-built connections to the largest shopping carts and retailers, our customers can start sending orders to our warehouse within minutes. It would take hundreds of hours for one of our staff to manage this through manual order entry.”
At the core of the 3PL Intelligent Ecosystem, the 3PL Central Platform serves as the proven backbone of our customers’ operations and quickly transforms paper-based, error-prone businesses into service leaders. Picture the platform as a hub or stable center of gravity, with connections to other solutions and services at its core. The value is derived not only from the platform’s own robust capabilities, but from its ability to easily bind these products and services together, and orchestrate them in a common mission – to enable intelligent distribution and drive growth.
Currently, 600 access credentials have been issued to connect more than 7,000 different endpoints. Additionally, high-volume processors are creating hundreds of thousands of orders per day, and more than 250 customers are already connected to the 3PL Central Platform through external API access and the 3PL Intelligence Ecosystem.
With the new programs, 3PL Central further enables customers, partners, and developers to easily discover and effectively leverage best-of-breed solutions and services.
As the 3PL warehouse landscape continues to transform and evolve at a rapid pace, 3PL Central is dedicated to keeping our customers, partners, and developers at the forefront of the industry. The 3PL Intelligence Ecosystem is designed to help them successfully navigate through the changes ahead and continue connecting the world through intelligent distribution.
