3PL Logistics FAQ’s: What Is Load Optimization?

When it comes to 3PL warehousing and logistics, load optimization is the practice of identifying the most cost-effective and timely manner in which to deliver a shipment based on factors such as the nature of the goods being transported and the timeframe in which the goods will need to be delivered.

When properly implemented and executed, load optimization can not only help to cut logistics costs for the customer, but can also result in faster, more accurate deliveries.
