    Hi Micheal,

    Can you provide more information? How exactly will you run a 3PL company?

    Some common questions to ask yourself are:
    1) What is your specialty? in a special region, or transport mode?
    2) Technology - tracking each carrier, and identifying problems in the delivering process (no one wants surprise)
    3) What prices are you charging?
    4) Who are your competitors?

It helps businesses to serve their customers better.
