LLP and 4PL Services

The outsourcing of logistics operations can involve a wide range of services and activities, starting with the role of Lead Logistics Provider or 4PL. GEODIS can provide its services and manage a set of 3PL providers on behalf of our customers – depending on their requirements – who retain the contractual relationship with those providers. In other cases, GEODIS can be the contract holder, operating on behalf of the customer. In either situation, we can provide outsourcing services for a particular country or region, or a specific part of a customer’s business on a local or global basis.

Full end-to-end visibility

As with our Sourcing and Procurement offering, the platforms delivered by GEODIS’ Strategic Outsourcing services offer customers full end-to-end visibility of their supply chain, irrespective of the number of logistics providers involved. Along with enhanced monitoring, this increased visibility enables customers to optimize these supply chains. In addition to the work of our local teams, our three global Centers of Excellence in China, Mexico and Serbia help to facilitate this level of visibility and logistics expertise. In turn, these global sites are supported by a network of 10 satellite centers that cater to specific, localized requirements.
