Third party logistics - 3PL
Many warehouse management systems claim to work for 3PLs. In reality, many of these systems are designed for retailers or distributors, not 3PLs. Why choose a system that is retrofit for 3PL, when the AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL platform is designed specifically for multi-client 3PL operations?

The AccellosOne 3PL Enterprise contains rich functionality developed over 20 years of working with multi-client 3PL operations, and has gone through continuous technology updates to ensure it is easy to support and has a low total cost of ownership.
With the AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL platform you can ensure client satisfaction by executing on client workflows flawlessly and giving your clients real-time access to their inventory and order information. Additionally, the integrated revenue assurance (billing) functionality ensures you maximize your revenue and streamline your billing processes.

Whether a single-item package or a pick-n-pack multi-item carton, Accellos quickly determines the carrier and consignee from the order information, rates the package and level of service, and automatically produces the necessary Carrier and Compliance Labels.”VP of Distribution, Norvanco International

For 3PLs that utilize parcel or LTL shipping methods, the management of multiple carrier rates and carrier compliance can be overwhelming. The AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL suite contains a a multi-carrier shipping system designed to help you reduce your shipping costs, improve your shipment accuracy, track shipments and product key shipping metrics. Shipping is becoming more challenging by the day: rules and regulations from the major carriers (FedEx, UPS, USPS) frequently change, LTL rates are all over the map and customer expectations continue to expand in today’s consumer-focused world.
In addition to executing perfectly for clients, it is critical that you bill them correctly to maximize your revenue. Billing rules for 3PLs can get complex and creative. Accellos’ history and experience with 3PLs results in software that supports complex billing requirements in the standard product without special product customizations. This streamlines your billing process, helps you maximize revenue and speeds on-boarding of new clients.
Even in today’s digital age, there is still a significant amount of paper documentation in the supply chain. AccellosOne eFile allows you to digitize your supply chain documentation including packing slips, bills of lading and commercial invoices. Once information is digitized it can be electronically stored, retrieved and made available to clients via the client portal.
The logistics services market is converging. Third party logistics (3PL) companies are acquiring power units and becoming trucking companies. Traditional freight carriers are leasing warehouse space and getting into the 3PL business. And, freight consolidators are brokering freight at an ever increasing rate. This is why the AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL solution includes capabilities for fleet management.
