Milwaukee, WI, March 2, 2022 – To ensure an optimal product lifecycle, many manufacturers have outsourced the management of Spare/Service Parts Logistics (SPL) to Third-Party Logistics Providers (3PLs). The SPL Market is driven by high-value manufactured products and their maintenance, particularly in the Automotive, Industrial, and Technological verticals, and is an essential part of global supply chain management.

(A&A’s) latest report, “Longevity: Insights and Analysis of the Global and Regional Spare/Service Parts 3PL Markets” we estimate the global SPL Third-Party Logistics (3PL) market reached $35 billion in 2020, and including the effects of COVID, grew at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.1% since 2016.

Additionally, some providers offer repair and refurbishment services, call center staffing, field technician training, and value-added services. 3PLs meet shippers’ needs with their strategically positioned global networks, integrated IT systems, reporting and analytics, flexibility, scalability, and standardized processes.
