WHAT IS A 4PL ACTUALLY?

1 PL

The manufacturer uses own vehicles to send products to a local customer.

2 PL

A transporting company is contracted
which owns vehicles like shipping carriers
or trucking companies.

3 PL

The manufacturer or customer contracts
a forwarder which outsources its service
to 2 PLs whilst adding necessary additional service like storing, labelling or packaging.

4 PL

The contracted logistics provider oversees
the full supply chain and is free to source
from any 2PL or 3PL provider. The 4PL has
no own assets but skilled supply chain
specialists who have the mission to optimize
the supply chain to best fitting service and
costs for manufacturer and customer. The 4PL
is the single point of contact for the supply chain.

Our Green Footprint

CIP SERVICES AG is committed to take part in the global effort to minimize global logistic industry’s impact on the environment. As company CIP SERVICES contributes within an Asian project. The Bangkok Kamphaeng Saen East project is Thailand’s first landfill gas project. It converts methane emissions from landfill waste into electricity, channeling it into the country’s national grid. The methane (a potent greenhouse gas) would otherwise escape into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change. Creating renewable electricity is also helping to reduce Thailand’s reliance on fossil fuel-generated electricity, and lower its carbon emissions.

Environment Ecocert

  •  The project significantly improves local air quality
  • The project creates global benefits through reduced impact upon climate change
  • The project creates employment and is helping to develop domestic expertise in landfill gas technology.
  • An additional source of revenue from the project’s Certified Emissions Reduction credits (CER) will help to secure the future and the continued provision of sanitary waste disposal.
