3PL Tendering

Ensuring a smooth and impartial 3PL tender that delivers value.

As consultants, we’ve worked on both sides of the fence in the third party logistics tender process.  

We’ve been the eager provider, designing solutions to meet the prospect’s requirements. We’ve also been the prospect detailing our requirements to get everything just right.

Combining these experiences we offer impartial advice, helping you set out the right information to get creative and value-led responses from providers. Let us help you choose the best solution for the future of your business.

3PL Tender Support

Tendering for third party solutions can be an exciting and invaluable process. Presenting your supply chain challenges to some of the biggest and most innovative suppliers of logistics solutions means having access to a global network of distribution. However, to get the most out of a 3PL tender process, it is vital that you first understand what your core challenges are, providing the tender participants with the information they need to best solve your problems, both creatively and commercially.

Whether it is through flexing the parameters that you have set out in your requirements, or achieving your stated aims in a way that you had not envisaged, being open to alternative solutions is a key part of finding the ‘right’ solution. If your thinking is limited to your preconceived, or current, ways of working, you will only polish your current solution through the tender process. Being open, and challenging your thinking, might deliver a more valuable step change.
