Logistics Solutions for the Hotel and Hospitality Industries

Hotel logistics informationIn the corporate world, the catch-all term “logistics” describes any and all activities involved in the transportation and warehousing of goods.

Commercial logistics adopted the concept from its military application, where the procurement, maintenance and transportation of materials, facilities and personnel are all of equal importance. In essence, logistics is the science of supply chain management.

Providing logistics solutions to the hotel and hospitality industries is a very particular discipline, one that’s practiced almost as an art form at 3PL Links.

A Specialized Area of Expertise

Interestingly, logistics is defined as “the handling of the details of an operation.” Few business environments are more exacting than the hotel and hospitality industries, so supplying logistics solutions in those areas requires extremely detailed, up-to-the-minute expertise.

We understand the challenges faced by the hotel and hospitality industries. ADR (average daily rate) discounting has become far more commonplace in recent years, as have restaurant value deals, and – while both initiatives can boost traffic – they also cut into the bottom line. Minimized cost of sales, coupled to maintained or increased levels of service, are the twin keys to success, and working with 3PL Links makes both goals simultaneously realizable.

By cutting costs in the supply chain, while sacrificing neither reliability nor customer service, our detailed, expert approach to logistics can improve service to all major operational challenges:

  • Food and beverage
  • Furniture, fixtures and equipment
  • Operating supply and equipment
