Third-Party Logistics, Partnerships and In-House Services

While companies that serve local or regional markets may utilize in-house delivery resources, most businesses use third-party logistics (3PL) or engage in partnerships. Some of the larger players in online and omnichannel retail have acquired or built their own networks for B2C delivery and train workers for the future. Manufacturers and intermediary goods producers face a series of different obstacles in their B2B logistics in the domestic market. Readings for this assignment provide a broad perspective on today’s distribution channels.

The paper should be written in the third person; this means words like “I,” “we,” and “you” are not appropriate. For more information, see Differences Between First and Third Person. The excessive use of quotes or unoriginal content will directly impact performance since it suggests a lack of comprehension and indicates that a student may not have mastered the concepts.

Anatomy of a Job Description


Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, review this week’s readings and Weekly Lecture.

The job description plays an important role for job evaluations, performance reviews, and the success of the individual within the organization. All areas of the process rely on the proper analysis and construction of the job description. There are times that the job description and the job posting are one in the same. For this exploration, we are going to look at job description templates and job postings and determine the effectiveness of the design and the impact on intended outcomes. Be sure to do some research on the key differences between job description and job postings.


Job Descriptions: Search online for a minimum of two different job descriptions from various sources. Save and attach descriptions to your initial post. (If there is no option to save, copy and paste the whole job description template into a Word document and attach.)

Job Postings: Search online for a minimum of two job ads or postings from various sources. Copy and paste each job ad and/or posting to a Word document, and attach it to your initial post.


Job Descriptions: Review each job description template, and identify the strengths and weaknesses of each. Compare and contrast the templates, looking for good aspects and poor aspects of each. What is missing for a solid understanding of what the job requires?

Job Postings: Review each posting, and identify the strengths and weaknesses of each posting. Compare and contrast the postings, and define the unimportant pieces of the ads and the information that is lacking for a solid understanding of the expectations. Will the job posting attract the appropriate candidate pool? Why or why not?


After reviewing job description templates and job postings, discuss the various components of the job description template and a job posting. Is it appropriate to use one template for both tasks?

As a human resource manager, assess the importance of job description templates and job posts in human resource planning and how that planning fits within a larger corporate strategy. What design would you recommend when posting for a position?
