What to look for in a 3PL?


I am finally looking to outsource my fulfilment to a 3PL. I have spent quite a while looking for a suitable one, but after reading a lot of sales copy etc, I am still undecided on how I determine what may be the best for my business.

Anyone who has experience working with 3PLs what would you advise I look for when deciding on who to partner with, besides price?

Also what should I look to avoid?

I have 2 SKUs with around 300 orders per month (including international), but I am looking to expand on this, and do not want to quickly outgrow a small 3PL.

I am also based in the UK so I have found it difficult to find any information about recommended 3PLs as most posts are based on those in the USA.

My products are high value so I want to make sure that I make the right decision when trusting another company to deal with such an important part of my business.

Thanks in advance.
