There are four major layers of logistics services which are;
First Party logistics (1PL) – Either we deal with favorable cargo owners, which can be the consignee (regards retailers who go-to suppliers for pickup), or shipper (regards manufacturers who deliver cargo to their customers). They determine the destination (demand) and origin (supply) of the cargo while we determine the distribution of the cargo. Globalization has influenced offshoring and outsourcing of manufacturing activities, which used to be fully an internal business influence the contracting of distribution services. That is where we come in, to take over your distribution services.
Second Party logistics (2PL) – This refers to the carriers who provide transportation services throughout a certain aspect of the transport chain. Such services might include a truck or rail operators, and maritime shipping company hired to tow cargo from a distribution center to its destination, e.g. port terminal.
Third Party Logistics (3PL) – This is where the freight forwarders have shares in an associated transportation sector as well as its physical assets and at the same time providing freight distribution services down the transportation chain. The freight distribution service could include terminal operations, warehousing, transloading and even types of light manufacturing like labeling and packaging. A 3PL, on the other hand, tries managing tasks that relate to physical distribution to enable transportation of parts and finished goods from point of manufacturing to their destination.
Fourth Party Logistics (4PL) – This deals with regular neutral and independent actors like the specialized consulting firms who manage and organize the whole of their customers supply chain strategies.

What is Contract Logistics?
This refers to the outsourcing of resource management task to third-party service providers. Such companies will manage every task such as warehousing, designing and planning supply chains, processing orders, designing facilities, transporting and distribution of goods, management of inventory, processing orders, and collection of payments and some other aspects of customer service.
Logistic management is an essential part of a company’s profitability and the general success of companies. However, some companies find it satisfactory to hire specialized contract logistics companies while others manage their logistic aspect themselves. Contract logistics companies are required to an in-depth understanding of how varying industry works to enable them to manage the logistics of different companies. This is a reason why most of the contract logistics companies are established by former logistic managers with the background knowledge and experience of the industry and where they can place their contracts.
Benefits of Contract Logistics
The major benefits of hiring a contract logistics company are because they are cost saving either by time or equity, removing the need to build expensive infrastructure. For instance, a glass producing company may build an office for its staff accommodation and then a large factory.
Such companies need to hire contract logistics services to handle their shipping needs. This will remove the need to heavily invest in shipping facilities, airplane, packaging materials, shipping trucks and other items which don’t have a direct impact on products and designs. In addition, most of the contract logistics companies in every sector are mostly large. They can manage and negotiate lower-priced goods which such glass companies or smaller businesses don’t want to do. This means working with contract logistics companies can be cheaper than for companies to build the infrastructure themselves.
