IT Challenge: Achieving sustainability through 3PLs

In this IT Challenge, learn how supply chain sustainability and 3PLs can go hand in hand.

The SearchManufacturingERP.com IT Challenge of the Month for November 2012:

I'm considering using a third-party logistics provider (3PL) to outsource my logistics needs. My company is very committed to sustainability and wants that to carry over into our transportation methods. What should we look at or expect from our 3PLs as far as sustainability goes? Is "being green" something that most 3PLs are concerned about?

Do you have a solution to this challenge? Have you encountered a similar issue at your business? If so, please contact the SearchManufacturingERP.com editors and share your suggestions or experiences. 

IT Challenge respondents will receive a free copy of a new book from SAP Press.

And be sure to check back here all this month -- we'll be posting solutions from experts and readers as we receive them.
