Contract logistics fails small business

Contract logistics provides big companies with limited benefits in Australia. Having fixed costs may be OK if you have a big budget but if you are a small company looking for a customised solution then a contract logistics provider may not be the solution for you.

99% of all business with less than 1000 pallets storage requirement will benefit from outsourcing. Most of the time a service provider will be able to share costs so will achieve lower costs than an in-house solution. The problem is that most of the major third party logistics (3PL) providers are not interested or are unable to provide cost effective solutions for small business.

Pik Pak Logistics specialises in small business and short term warehousing on demand. Our web based system is designed to give small players all the benefits of outsourcing without the big business price. On demand means you donít need a long term contract you just use what you need when you need it.
