  3PL or 4PL?
Quinten Evans, Manager, United Kingdom, Member
  In reality most 3PL's incorporate a 4PL outlook in some of their core compentencies, the logistics field incorporates so many different types of forms, from international customs clearance and delivery, to domestics deliveries, storage distribution and now even mailing houses. Only the companies big enough to cover international deliveries from their own fleet might be considered to be a true 3PL, but even in countries they dont have a presence in, they will no doubt have a local supplier to complete the delivery transaction, which could place them technically as a 4PL.
If you are investigating if you need a logistics provider you need to first realise the service you need, apart from delivery does it include storage or fulfilment. Do you require delivery timescales. Once you know your requirements let the providers run after you.
