Tim Pendleton
The service that 3PLWow provides has been a god-send. They took on my business on during the early days of the pandemic in 2020 and despite contending with reduced staffing and social distancing measures, they worked relentlessly to familiarise themselves with our product range and start fulfilling our product range. Since then, so long as I keep my inventory at healthy levels, this is an area of my business I can just leave to run, knowing that it's in safe hands. Big thank you to the 3PLWow team. **Updated in 2023** - the 3PLWow team continue to provide a superb service, making me feel as if this aspect of my business is running on autopilot. Thank you for the hard work and dedication behind the scenes guys.
