Every organization seeks to increase operational efficiency and accommodate fluctuating customer needs when selecting a reliable third-party logistics (3PL) partner. A 3PL partner that is flexible and scalable enables businesses to grow faster with less effort and maximize profits with the knowledge that their day-to-day logistics are in safe hands.

This is precisely what Sam Souvall set out to achieve when he founded Anchor3PL ten years ago.

“At the core of Anchor3PL’s foundation is the vision to provide durable, flexible, and scalable infrastructure for organizations to plug in and go to work,” says Souvall, CEO of Anchor3PL.

Anchor3PL is an asset-based, full-service warehousing and logistics company specializing in raw and finished food-grade inventory, dry goods, retail fulfillment, hazmat/chemical, and routing guide specialists. The company caters to both national and regional companies and has an impressive list of clients, including Toyota, Costco, Target, Henkel, and Cornwell Tools. Anchor 3PL offers warehousing, inventory management, distribution, transportation, transloading, and road and rail services. Strategically located in Utah, Anchor3PL is capable of timely distribution throughout the Western United States.

Staying true to its vision, Anchor3PL adapts its services to mirror each client’s systems and processes. By constantly communicating with its clients, Anchor3PL streamlines the entire process, provides regular updates, and improves its operations to elevate the partnership.

Anchor3PL is keenly focused on building long-lasting relationships with clients, helping them grow and achieve their business goals. In one instance, a rigid plastic packaging company faced challenges with their current 3PL partner.

They sought help from Anchor3PL, which stepped in and performed an EDI integration to facilitate the exchange of data across a variety of platforms and, in the process, align its systems with the client’s. Anchor3PL efficiently addressed the challenges faced by the client and has since built a harmonious relationship with them, becoming their trusted partner for all 3PL needs.

Not only does Anchor3PL establish a strong rapport with its customers, but it also builds a synergistic relationship with its competitors. Interestingly, a large percentage of the company’s leads come from friendly competitors. “We believe our biggest accomplishment is that we have been able to grow with our competitors and have benefitted from each other. We all bring something different to the table, and the connection we have built has turned us all into better operators,” says Souvall.

With a deep-rooted passion for serving its clients in the best possible way, Anchor3PL collects feedback and analyzes them to further enhance its services. The company’s decision to focus on people, excellence, and profit has enabled them to retain and hire top talent in the industry.

Anchor3PL has obtained numerous compliance certifications over the years and is currently in the final stages of its Safe Quality Foods (SQF) certification. The company is a one-source provider for all third-party logistics needs and operates out of a 250,000 square feet facility.

Constantly investing in its people and processes, Anchor3PL strives to make sure that its systems, processes, and team are second to none. The company always meets and exceeds the expectations of its clients and offers competitively priced services. For Souvall and his team, providing clients with top-notch services is not just a mission; it is an obsession.
