Logistics / 3PL / 4PL / Fulfillment / Distribution Services / Supply Chain Management / Etc..
There are many services and definitions that overlap in the world of 3PL (Third Party Logistics), 4PL (Fourth Party Logistics), Fulfillment, Distribution, Reverse Logistics, and Supply Chain Management. Depending on who you talk to these terms can be partially synonymous or can mean completely different things. Each of these disciplines also comes with a whole host of specialized terms and acronyms that also get applied individually, or cross over each other.
No matter how you define them, spa has a full suite of services that will meet all your needs at an affordable price. We've been managing supply chains, logistics, fulfillment, distribution, and reverse logistics solutions, (and much, much more) for over 15 years, so we know all the terms and all the quirks in the industry.
We've seen many of our competitors come and go over those 15 years and the one thing that our customers will tell you is that fast, quality services at an affordable price are an unbeatable combination for our customers. We scale and customize our services to meet your needs based on market conditions and the demands and delivery service requirements for your products and materials.
For those of you who do want the technical lingo:
spa is a 3PL Service Developer, Customer Adapter/Developer, who manages the planning and implementation of any/all activities involved in sourcing, procurement, conversion, and logistics management activities. Additionally we manage and control the flow of goods, energy, information and other resources like products, services and people from the source of production to the marketplace. This includes coordination and collaboration with channel partners, which can be suppliers, intermediaries, third-party service providers, and customers. We also provide/manage the processes whereby a person or company fulfills their obligations to send products that have been ordered, purchased, or requested, including the manufacture or assembly of these products. All of this is wrapped in a real time data tracking methodology that give us real-time 24/7/365 statistical access and analysis into all of the previously mentioned services.
We find that most people stop
listening/reading at about the third line of that definition,
so we just like to say, No matter what your needs spa has a solution
that will fit your business.
