Turn-Key Distribution Solutions

Fourth-Part Logistics

With such a variety of supply chain offerings, how can ADS approach best be described? We’re not simply a contract manufacturer.
​Nor just a third-party logistics (“3PL”) company.

We describe ourselves as a “4PL” (fourth-part logistics) provider. 4PL is defined as… “an integrator that assembles the resources, capabilities, and technology of its own organization and other organizations to design, build and run comprehensive supply chain solutions.” Essentially, we function as both an architect and a general contractor, adding value from initial product design to managing production resources, to facilitating distribution.

As a 4PL company, we convey significant benefits to our clients, starting with dramatic simplification of the supply chain processes via a single point of contact and our market-proven network of trusted resources, we deliver “best of breed” quality and create economies of scale for maximum cost-effectiveness and speed. And when you include end-to-end services and powerful technologies to take projects from product development through order management and fulfillment, it all adds up to one thing. Smart business.

More Value. Less Worry.
