3rd Party Logistics Providers & Freight Brokers

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a 3rd party logistics (3pl) provider and a freight broker?

Although they’re both intermediaries between shipper and carrier, a freight broker is one who generally handles a couple transactional shipments with a few modes of transportation. Example, LTL, full truckload and that’s all. A 3pl tend to handle the overall supply chain of the customers’ requests which generally mean more services. Example, LTL, FTL, expedite, import/export, rail, drayage etc.

PWL is a 3pl provider offering services in all modes of general trucking! Contact us today to speak with one of our experienced account representatives.
