Top 5 Benefits of Business Process Outsourcing to your Supply Chain


We used to call it sub-contracting but now it’s BPO or business process outsourcing. The main benefit of turning to a process outsourcing is the expertise. Take for instance the security guards that you hire for your business that you employ whether in the office or in the warehouse. The outsourced security guard is already trained with license which relieves you of those hassle. Another example is the repairs or construction of the structure. Hiring a sub-contractor is much convenient than getting your own workers for the job. The only catch in BPO is the high cost of service contract.

Thanks for sharing interesting information.
I want to add some additional points about IT outsourcing which are common to all types of business from this article:

- access to a giant talent pool;
- teams extension;
- opportunity to choose optimum cost/quality ratio;
- hands-on experience in the latest trends

In my mind BPO tend to apply to the 'back office' part of Outsourcing. Like call centres and IT support.

As for Logistics Outsourcing to a 3PL (Third Party Logistics) company, many think it is a good way to reduce costs.
I have rarely seen that!

More common reasons to outsource Logistics are:

To gain flexibility in resourcing
To access expertise
To access specialist equipment
To get a large Logistics cost 'off the books'.


I have confidence on the “mover” because they are used to doing the job especially of delicate items like computer equipment. From what I know, they also do the packaging of the items to be moved so they are protected from impact that can cause breakage. Doing the moving by yourself may save on cost of the transport but you may experience some adverse effects that can cause losses on your part.
