English term or phrase:asset-based logistics provider / non-asset based logistics service provider
An asset-based logistics provider owns many or all of the assets necessary to run a client's supply chain. These assets include trucks, warehouses and distribution centers, among others.
vs a non-asset-based logistics provider:
A non-asset based logistics service provider does not own the assets necessary to manage and implement a supply chain. Instead, a non-asset based provider offers its expertise in negotiating contracts with carriers, maintaining carrier relationship management programs, warehouses, and distribution centers in order to manage your supply chain at the lowest possible cost to your business. A non-asset based logistics provider realizes that every client has different priorities for their logistics operations, and since they do not need to utilize an inventory of assets to remain profitable, non-asset based third party logistics companies exhibit a flexibility in supply chain solutions that asset based logistics providers do not.
