Outsourcing is extensively used by both manufacturing and service industries. Many business functions are being outsourced so as to enable organizations to concentrate on their core competencies. Companies outsource for strategic, tactical and transformational reasons.
There are various forms of outsourcing like vendor managed inventory, third party logistics providers and fourth part logistics providers. Vendor managed inventory is important for improving multi firm supply chain efficiency. The vendor monitors the inventory of the buyer and periodically supplies according to the requirements of the organization.
TPL or 3PL involves the use of an outside party to take care of company's product distribution fully or partly. 4PL combines the capabilities of management consulting firms and third party logistics providers.
