Ep.43 Understanding When and Why You Will Need a 3rd Party Logistics (3PL) Company with Waleed Shahzar from ShipHype

Welcome back to the Sprint to Profit Podcast for Amazon Sellers. In this episode, we are going to be speaking with Waleed Shahzad from ShipHype about the ever growing needs that Amazon FBA sellers have when it comes to using 3rd party logistic companies (3PL’s) to help store and fulfill their inventory during peak seasons… or even when Amazon has capacity issues with FBA, like we’re seeing right now.

Waleed also goes over what a 3PL is, what you should be looking for when you search for one, and the important steps and information you need while you are on your search for your perfect 3PL.
