In this IT Challenge, find out whether smaller manufacturers can make third-party logistics (3PL) worth the cost.

The SearchManufacturingERP.com IT Challenge of the Month for September 2012:

What size does a manufacturing organization need to be to benefit from a third-party logistics (3PL) provider? In other words, when does the cost of outsourcing become worth it for a company?
