Since sea freight is a vast industry that involves complex functions and multiple players spread across continents, large shippers often rely on third-party logistics providers (3PLs) and freight forwarders for hassle-free and successful order fulfillment. But thanks to the power of automation and technology-enabled tools and platforms, several shippers are now in a position to insource and automate a wide range of tasks and activities that they previously outsourced.
The question, however, is this - how do shippers make an informed decision on whether to outsource your operations or handle them in-house? More importantly, how do you determine which parts of your operations to outsource and which to insource?
Discover the eBook "Insourcing or Outsourcing Ocean Operations? How Shippers Can Make an Informed Decision", a useful tool to help you make the right choice, fitting with your company characteristics.
This eBook takes a detailed look at each of the aspects you need to consider while deciding whether to outsource or insource your maritime transportation operations, from your shipping volume, business objectives, operational procedures to cost-effectiveness, human resource capacity, IT maturity, and more.
