Our Top Pick Examples of Website Design for 3PL, Logistics and Supply Chain Companies
Here are some of our favorite examples of website design for logistics companies, 3PL companies, and supply chain companies:
GlobalTranz recently made a large acquisition and, when looking at folding content from their acquisition into their existing website, found themselves frustrated with the challenge. Their old site wasn’t flexible enough for such a complex content migration, so they decided to have a new site made to meet those specific needs.
They wanted their website to solidify their online presence as a professional, formidable logistics provider and partner. To accomplish this, they came to Windmill Strategy for help. After speaking to their team, we developed a strategy that focused on sitemap reorganization, copy clarity, and instilling the manageability and flexibility needed for future growth.

Promote Your Specialties and Niche Offerings
If you excel at delivering in a certain specialty, the messaging and organization of content on your website should reflect this specialization.
For example, if you offer food-grade warehousing and storage, and want to grow that business you should include this content on your homepage and on a service page. You also should be writing thought leadership and resource-driven content that targets your ideal customer who might be searching for ‘food grade warehouse + geography’ so you appear as a leader in the space online.
Global Trade and Timely Communication
As global trade increases, your organization needs to be prepared for the potential interruption to the supply chain which might impact how you interact with your customers. You may experience weather delays, technology outages, a pandemic, driver shortages, etc. Thus, you need a way to quickly and effectively communicate to your customers early and often.
In nearly every supply chain website we develop, we include spots to enable and customize optional alerts, typically at the top of the website. Those alerts prominently present a short-version message to the user when interacting with your website, and then lead the user to a landing page with greater detail should a customer be affected.
We can gather ideas and key points for success by reviewing these 3PL, logistics, and supply chain company sites. They all demonstrate visual appeal and useful organization. A few additional points bear repeating.
- Design with your target audience in mind. Lead with a positioning statement that clearly describes who you are and what you do..
- Stand out as a thought leader with an optimized blog, relevant industry news, and informative content that adds value for your visitors.
- Ensure that site visitors grasp the extent and value of your 3PL, logistics and supply chain services by featuring case studies and content that highlight your full range of services.
Marketing complex products and services to a B2B audience requires a comprehensive strategy to earn increased quality and quantity of leads.
