Outsourcing logistic operations to a third-party logistics (3PL) provider can prove beneficial to your business. As we witness signs of life returning to normal, the question remains as to what normal will look like post-pandemic. The COVID-19 epidemic has created a labour shortage that has resulted in higher wages. Warehouse space has become scarce and therefore more expensive. Working with 3PL freight shipping companies post-pandemic allows small or medium-sized businesses to redistribute these operations – at reduced cost – so they can shift their focus to other priority operations.
While the cost of warehouse space and labour has spiked exponentially over the course of the pandemic, so has the cost of having to hire and train new workers. Shared warehousing – offered by some 3PLs – allows for the ability to ramp up resources when volumes are high, and to reduce operations when not needed. Utilizing the services of freight trucking companies provides the flexibility to simply pay for what your business requires at any given point in time.
All 3PLs are different, but choosing one that offers multiple logistic services can prove to be beneficial for businesses. Managing relationships, when outsourcing logistics operations, requires time and resources. By having just a single operations provider that can focus on multiple functions, allows for more efficient business operations.

Greg Grimes got it done. I had an unusual shipment that he took on seriously and professionally. Greg was very responsive and communicative, worked many different angles to get me a good price, and overcame several logistical challenges. I would definitely use MGA again.
We have made several trips to Toronto for the 2013 PGA Championship and over the course of those trips we have gotten to know the principles of this organization well. They are headquartered in Toronto and are great people. If you need to reach out to them, ask for Greg or Brad Grimes and let them know you heard of them through this note and they will take good care of you.
Can count on MGA for all my shipping requirements. Fantastic personnel and service.
