One of the first logistics companies in Sri Lanka to offer in-plant 3PL solutions to its customers, Eagle Logistics Colombo’s 3PL solutions provides and manages all or a significant part of an organisation’s logistics requirements and performs transportation and locating.

It also assists companies that provide an outsourcing option for many parts of the supply chain by offering consolidated transportation alternatives, and managing the movement of goods and information for their clients.

Eagle Logistics started offering this product two years ago with multinational company Nestle Lanka and last week took over the total operations of another large exporter in the country, Eskimo Fashion Knitwear.

Eagle Logistics Managing Director Asanga Weerackody said: “We are delighted to know that customers in Sri Lanka are taking interest in these modern supply chain solutions through which they save finance as well as streamline their operations.  

“As a logistics company, it is our duty to introduce new methods to improve the productivity in the import export industry and it is not just about offering cheap costs for freight. Customers in Sri Lanka still expect logistics providers to only be involved in freight from one place to another place and local custom formalities.”

He also added: “We started this company eight years ago with the concept ‘Think Different’ and this concept has really helped the staff to do things differently, starting from traditional freight forwarding. Our staff always looks for solutions to improve current supply chain processes of our customers.”  

Eagle Logistics 3PL Operations Head Christine Jennifer said: “It is a privilege to be involved with our customers in day-to-day operations in the supply chain by studying it and introducing new methods to improve efficiency and productivity.”

Eagle Logistics Colombo has a staff of over 80 and operates from four locations – Colombo, Katunayake, Biyagama and Moratuwa.
