Increase Profits
 
Pik Pak manages many small customer accounts (Clients) on our web based system. We provide account management, reporting and technical support for our clients. Pik Pak consolidates these volumes without the need for 3PLs to duplicate setup and implementation costs.
 
Improve Return On Investment ROI
 
Because Pik Pak WMS is a web based application it can be deployed anywhere, with internet access, without requiring complicated interfaces or capital intensive set ups. Data hosting, training and system upgrades are all managed via our service provider. There is no additional outlay required for 3PL to use Pik Pak services.
 
Economic Scale 
 
Pik Pak manages all our customer expectations to a standardised service level. 3PL do not have to be concerned about the range of order “cut off” times, units of measure, charging structures, account keeping and handling methods. Pik Pak manages all of this for 3PLs and provides them with a single interface so that they do what they do best – run efficient operations.
 
Single interface
 
As the primary customer account for a 3PL, Pik Pak provides a single interface for 3PLs to multiple clients. The duplicated costs of implementation and integration to multiple client operations and systems is removed. Pik Pak interfaces with client systems & shopping cart applications through our web API. Pik Pak provides standard documentation, labels packaging and reporting for our clients so that they don’t need to be duplicated by 3PLs. This allows 3PLs to gain economic scale and achieve the operating efficiencies they need to be competitive.
 
Reduce Waste 
 
One of the biggest challenges any 3PL must face is how to utilise fixed assets effectively. Variations in seasonal demand, production schedules and customer requirements often means that fixed assets (eg. facilities, vehicles, equipment or labour) are not 100% utilised. By introducing smaller and more variable volumes into a 3PL network or schedule allows the 3PL to achieve higher level of utilisation. Higher utilisation of fixed assets results in lower fixed cost/unit and better ROI.
 
Smooth peak volumes
 
Variations between off peak, average and maximum peak effect asset utilisation and, more critically, service delivery. Often with several large scale customers this amplitude between volumes may be co-incidental and have competing priorities. Small scale operations are often complimentary and the volumes can be scheduled to reduce deterioration in customer service and productivity. By managing capacity and variations in schedules 3PL reduce waste.
 
Lower Risks 
 
A single debtor requires less invoicing, reporting and maintenance. 3PL accounts receivable does not have to chase payment for multiple debtors or to perform multiple credit checks.
 
Referral
 
Pik Pak likes to see our clients succeed and grow their business. However, sometimes these customers outgrow our service operating model and will seek to move to a contract logistics model. Pik Pak provides quality data, process and service information to help our clients find a solution that suits them. From time to time Pik Pak will refer these clients to our affiliate 3PL companies or assist with outsourcing arrangements.
