Managing 3rd Party Logistics (3PL) Service Providers – Key Success Factor # 4 – Implementing a disciplined supplier management process

A disciplined supplier management process is essential. There is a perception that once you outsource, you will loose control.

You must define the reporting methodology and format; you must set up the reporting schedule and timetable; and most importantly you must measure and monitor performance diligently and consistently.
