Jacobson Companies, headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, describes itself on its Web site as a “can do” third party logistics company. The company is indicative of the new breed of logistics services firms that can do it all. If a company, whether a manufacturer, wholesaler, retailer or other type of firm, needs logistical help, they can find “one-stop shipping” for logistical services if they deal with 3PL firms. Along with the avail- ability of an almost unlimited range of services, is the capability of many 3PLs to custom tailor the logistical services they provide to fit the particular needs of their clients. Why do you think 3PLs have become such an important type of facilitating agency in market channels? Do you expect this trend to continue?
