Big thank you to Luis Nipoli for this brilliant insight!
Throughout the 19 th century, over-sized ships performed freight transportation with great success. While the types of goods that were being transported greatly varied, most traded thru some common commodites: wood, cast iron and metals such as linen, cotton , salt and hides.
In 1853 John Braithwaite invented an articulated lorry for hauling bulk warehoused across streets in Manhattan, which was the predecessor to Lee Logistics road vehicles . This was a variation of the fire-engine pump style of towed artillery to transport large loads in both roadways and off-road – water conveyance. At first it was mainly used on roads that had running water. The units could actually be attached at both ends either by wheels or a tow rope/horse cable such as most wagons use today for urban transit systems (sewers).
The rear sleds or side rails were used in various shapes and sizes connected together. This would be the first continuous cycle prototype combined with precision track adjustment tracking over curbstones and manhole covers atop city river beds narrow passageways (alleyways)where they could reach the lower bridges under which anything moved
What type of 3pl originated from the public or contract warehousing business?
They have a wide and diverse geography, but can be categorized to the west Corn Belt factory cities and the east Tennessee chain store-style supermarkets.
What is one of the strengths of an asset based 3pl?
There is one: the strength of an asset-based company is that it can add value to the economic growth of a country like Uruguay for example and also to every Uruguayan through its production. Moreover, it could be said “that everything we have belongs to threepl companies; this implies it belongs to all citizens without privileging anyone.”
