Why We’re Better

Supply chain operations consulting is 3PLR’s primary focus and strength.

This focus differentiates us from the myriad of consultants who really want to sell software, equipment or third-party logistics services. Our approach is different. We work with clients to fundamentally change their processes, infrastructure and organization, and use enabling technology to automate work and manage information. Let us share some key points that give 3PLR and its clients an advantage.

“Highly professional presentation and experience. Clean, crisp and enjoyable across the board. We needed a consultant who could provide us with information on the state of the industry. 3PLR was perfectly helpful and has a deep intellect about 3PL.”

— Greg Petersen, CAO, Planet Access Co.

Expertise Spanning the Supply Chain:
Our consultants offer Supply Chain capabilities from strategy through delivery with proven depth in planning, manufacturing, procurement, and logistics operations. Our expertise was gained through years of leading Supply Chain initiatives for employers and clients, gaining knowledge of how the Supply Chain functions work together, and transforming businesses.

Value of Seasoned Teams:
When working with 3PLR you can be assured you will be working with experienced consultants, not junior consultants looking for on-the-job training. Our consultants are seasoned professionals with deep skills and the ability to work effectively with your teams, as well as independently.

Diagnostic Approach:
Your business and circumstances are unique. Therefore, it is important to choose the right techniques and methods for analysis, solution design, and implementation. We bring a big tool box to the job. Our consultants are experienced in Six Sigma, Lean, business planning, financial analysis, organizational design, change management, and systems implementation.

Focus on Results from the Start:
We define our approach and deliverables before the project begins. It keeps us focused on your objectives, which may include performance improvement, cost reduction, asset utilization, business planning, acquisition integration, outsourcing, change management, organizational design and staffing, technology integration, network optimization, facilities design, and training.

Global Scope:
Often the scope of our client’s business is global. Fortunately, our consultants have worked with foreign companies and cross-border operations in much of the world, but especially in North America, China, Japan, India, and Europe.

Fortune 500 and Middle-Market Clients:
Our client list includes many Fortune 500 companies. We also work with mid-sized companies that are challenged with growth, profitability, and resource expertise. Our expertise and capabilities bring value to all of our clients regardless of size.

Multiple Industries Served:
Our clients operate in many industries, including automotive, telecommunications, industrial, medical, technology, printing, consumer packaged goods, retail, food & beverage, chemicals and services. 3PLR consultants are experienced in a wide range of industries. When forming a team to work with your company, we will handpick consults with experience relevant to your business.

While many companies offer consulting services, at 3PLR we take pride in our objectivity and integrity. Our clients value it as well. Our analysis and recommendations are based solely on data and our industry knowledge.

“I recommend 3PLR. They are on top of their game, have a great background of experience, and they are fun to work with.”
