COLORADO SPRINGS, Col.--Accellos has announced the release of its latest white paper titled, The Next Generation of the Supply Chain Elite - 4PL Providers.

Topics discussed within this white paper include: how a 3PL becomes a 4PL, the 4PL Model, key responsibilities and associated benefits of the 4PL, best-of-breed technology for 4PLs, supply chain planning and execution terminology, and 5 Keys to forging a successful 4PL partnership.

According to a 2013 Third Party Logistics Study, only 86 percent of shippers view their relationship with their 3PL as successful as compared to 94 percent of 3PLs. While this is an increase over previous years and shippers “credit the improvement to the 3PLs with finding new and effective ways to improve logistics effectiveness,” the discrepancy opens up an opportunity for leading 3PLs to further improve their operations by supporting more innovative technology, said the release.

“Being an Industry leader requires that you stay at the forefront of the Supply Chain Cycle and if you’re a 3PL service provider, you need to think about considering a 4PL Strategy, as this logistics segment is on the rise, ” said Joe E. Couto, Senior Vice President & 3PL General Manager, Accellos. “In this white paper, we show that Accellos has true domain expertise by outlining the benefits of becoming a 4PL.”
