4PL – Fourth Party Logistics Provider

In contrast to 3PL – Third Party Logistics Providers, Fourth Party Logistics Providers (4PL) do not have their own infrastructure for transport, transshipment or storage. 4PLs only provide the know-how: Instead of a physical vehicle fleet, 4PLs provide fleet management, for example. By using 3PL and 4PL provider services, companies receive all logistics services from a single source.
