Logistics Outsourcing (4PL) can be defined as the strategic use of outside parties (business independency) to perform activities traditionally handled by internal staff and resources. Allyn allocates resources to your company in order to manage your supply chain. We work as an extension of your company, exercising your strategy and driving your initiatives. Our objective is to lead your business to logistics best practices, providing logistics expertise & consultancy support, optimizing your processes and your supply chain.
The 4PL term dates back to 1996 and was invented by Accenture who defined a 4PL as, "A supply chain integrator that assembles and manages the resources, capabilities, and technology of its own organization with those of complementary service providers to deliver a comprehensive supply chain solution."

Allyn becomes an extension of your organization helping you develop and implement your supply chain strategies. We can create a customized routing center to support daily logistics planning and operations.
Our client's routing center will support and carry out their day to day freight management operation in compliance with the developed strategy.
As a 4PL provider, Allyn offers full-scope logistics support as well as customized logistics solutions. The standard services provided range from freight management to invoice auditing. We also offer on-site coordinators, Transportation Management Systems, and logistics sourcing.
Implementing a 4PL freight management system brings our clients many benefits including access to a uniform process via our custom deisgned transportation management system, scope and reach from our global operations, and expertise tailored to the local market. Collaborating with Allyn will allow you to leverage your purchasing power and improve service providers performance.
There are two aspects (qualitative and quantitative) in a study used to determine if an organization and their logistics profile are suitable for the 4PL concept.
Our goal is to ensure that we understand your business CTQ’s (Critical To Quality). We examine your operational and strategic requirements in order to confirm compatibility with the 4PL concept and to ensure that the quantitative part of the study compares "apples to apples".
This part of the study focuses mainly on analyzing the shipment profile and spend of an organization to determine the suitability of the 4PL concept and return on investment.
The goal of the analysis is to analyze spend, shipments profiles, pattern recognition and trends to determine how the business performed in the past and what possible savings Allyn can achieve. During the qualitative study Allyn will analyze the volume and flows to confirm they are sufficient for the 4PL concept. We will compare your historical data to a logistics market snapshot in order to determine potential direct savings which a 4PL implementation would generate.
Ideally, data for a period greater than 3 months should be supplied to realistically estimate yearly trend and volume. Format and detail of the data can vary.
Allyn is fully prepared to sign confidentiality clauses or similar in order to guarantee that the provided data and information will not be used for other purposes than the specific 4PL study.
Please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to present you with further information and help you investigate the 4PL potential for your company.
