Making Full-Fledged Use of 3PL
TOKYO SHIRTS CO., LTD., has begun making full-fledged use of 3PL* to subcontract all of its logistics operations to a major logistics operator. By integrating its systems with this logistics operator, TOKYO SHIRTS succeeded in more quickly determining its orders, shipments and inventory levels.
At the same time, misdeliveries fell considerably (from 1.9% in the previous year, to 0.8%). Furthermore, improvements in distribution efficiency helped to reduce environmental impact.
