What is 4PL


A 4PL provider is not tied down to any assets (e.g. warehouses, transportation, technology, etc.) and the fixed costs they involve. Therefore, a 4PL is completely free of bias during the provision of services, choosing the best-in-class resources (often 3PLs, 2PLs, etc.) to operate specific segments of the supply chain.


A 4PL is a single point of contact who handles everything in the supply chain suppliers, service providers, customs, tax rules and regulations, etc. This way, the entire supply chain operation is addressed, giving the 4PL service provider the ability to look at and optimise all aspects of the supply chain.

How ISC works with Freight Forwarders?

ISC selects the best freight forwarder for the customer’s supply chain needs. Rather than be locked in with one freight forwarder for the entire length of the supply chain, we leverage different freight forwarder’s best-in-class resources and avoid the weak spots in their networks.
