In an increasingly challenging overall market situation, it is difficult for any organization to anticipate and accommodate all internal expertise. Outsourcing logistics allows an organization to concentrate on its core strengths rather than manage non-core yet crucial operations. This program introduces the concepts of third-party logistics (3PL) and fourth-party logistics (4PL) and how they improve an organization's overall supply chain and market competitiveness.
