Contract-oriented logistics services Third-party logistics companies can manage the entire logistics process or can choose several logistics service items, such as order management, inventory management, freight negotiation, carrier selection, etc. The traditional outsourcing is limited to one or several scattered logistics functions, such as transportation companies providing transportation services and warehousing companies providing warehousing services. In addition, when industrial and commercial enterprises choose third-party logistics services, they generally have to sign a special contract, stipulating service items and goals, and include certain penalties. Some companies have also formulated some incentive clauses. 2.
