Unishippers' Checklist for Transitioning to a New 3PL

It takes time and research to choose a third-party logistics provider (3PL), but once you select one, you’re not done yet! There are a number of things you need to plan for as you begin transitioning to your new 3PL — but don’t worry, we’ll make sure you don’t miss any important steps.

Download Unishippers’ checklist to learn the important steps you should take when transitioning to a new 3PL, including:

  • Setting expectations with your provider
  • Determining a timeline for the transition
  • Discussing your billing options
  • Reviewing any terms and conditions
  • Understanding the onboarding process

When you’re in the middle of a 3PL transition, you’re also sure to have a lot of questions. But with so much to manage when operating a business, it can be hard to remember all of those important questions off-hand. You may be wondering:

  • When and how often will I receive invoices?
  • Does my 3PL have credit card upcharges or late fees?
  • How long will the transition to my 3PL’s shipping solution take?

We remind you of all these questions (and more!) in our comprehensive checklist, so you can feel confident during the process and transition to your new 3PL without a hitch.
