The third-party logistics (3PL) industry constantly evolves.

Here’s a starter checklist to help you recognize the types of actions a responsive 3PL regularly takes:

* Updates technology to meet the ever-changing transportation industry.
* Prepares for capacity constraints.
* Possesses the flexibility to design and prepare reports to your specifications.
* Takes calculated risks in its own business to stay on the cutting edge.
* Responds to the particular needs of all clients regardless of size.
* Sustains cutting edge methods for tracking and quoting truckload shipments.
* Structures itself to keep abreast of industry and economic trends.

Choosing an agile 3PL can make you happy with your decision years after you first made it.
