Fifth Party Logistics
What is 5PL?
5PL is the fifth level of service in sub-contracting a company’s logistics activities (1PL, 2PL, 3PL and 4PL also exist). The term 5PL refers both to the level of sub-contracting and the companies which provide transport and supply-chain services in the international business arena, and can thus be called ‘logistics integrators’.
The principal function of a 5PL service provider is the coordination of the various players involved in a company’s logistics operations.
A 5PL service provider usually supports companies in the sub-contracting of their logistics activities by offering:
- Implementing the complete logistics process;
- Organisation, management, optimisation and evaluation of that logistics process;
- Managing the logistics service providers;
- Full control of the supply chain using its own resources and its own technology.
