Thanks for alerting me to the post on your site, Dustin. I recently wrote a piece on my own blog on how important transportation and logistics providers, i.e. freight carriers, are in supply chains. 3PLs should rightly be integrated or partnered into supply chains, and not be seen as an add-on or external service.
