Using Synapse within a fully deployed RF environment we are able to implement tools such as real-time tasking, labor management, and barcode verification to maximize accuracy and productivity.
Ultimately one of the most valuable aspects of Law’s 3PL Services is our flexibility. While Synapse fully supports most customers, every operation has unique challenges and opportunities.

For some customers we bring their systems in-house, operating as an off-site location directly on their systems, directly updating their systems. No matter what IT solution we use, our IT staff has the knowledge and experience to solve all your IT needs.
Their location, which is serviced by Pan Am Railroad, serves as a central location for the distribution of product to and from New England.

Variable Cost Advantage for Growing and Seasonal Businesses
Growing businesses often lack the capital to build and epuip warehouses and/or fleets of trucks. Seasonal fluctuations can put pressure on distribution systems, or worse, leave valuable capital assets idle. Before investing in an expensive warehouse facility, fleet of trucks and the resources, equipment and personnel required to operate your own space, visit us for cost-effective solutions. Let us handle your warehousing and transportation needs so that you can invest your capital back into your business. Through our experience and professionalism, we make it possible for you to focus your time and resources on your core strengths.
With more than 10 years of employment at Law on average, you can count on Law’s well-qualified and professional staff to be efficient, friendly and proactive working on your accounts.
