This article reports that third-party logistics service providers should cooperate with all entities throughout the supply chain. Current pressures to reduce logistics costs without sacrificing customer service levels mean that third-party logistics service providers may need to cooperate with all the entities throughout the supply chain. Such cooperation should be targeted towards maximizing the use of the resources and therefore minimizing costs while maintaining, or improving, customer service levels. Cooperation within the supply chain will eliminate competition between third party logistics service providers for individual activities within supply chain and raise the level of logistics competition between products offered in the market place.
