The client and 3PL should have signed an early Reciprocal Confidentiality Agreement (NDA) to protect the detailed discussion of the project and 3PL capabilities. Reciprocal recourse means that the NOA similarly protects the intellectual property of both parties. The treaty often has different formulations than the former autonomous NOA. Decide with your lawyer what to do with the original provisions of the NDA. Agreements should define your intellectual property, including, but not only: a contract will identify the specific conditions under which the contract can be terminated. Does compliance with 3PL according to contractual standards, error rates, service levels and account management allow you to terminate the contract? Consult your lawyer and identify the specific conditions and language. Putting your mission in the hands of an external party is a big step. It is understandable that every company wants to have protection for its business. The “Standards” section that was discussed explains your performance expectations. Your lawyer should advise you on the guarantee of your company`s protection service. The SOW and the contract combine all the sales materials and the seller`s commitments during the sale process into a relatively short document.
If that is an important promise, put it in the contract. The sale of materials is not contractual. The SOW is the services for which you and 3PL sign a contract. SOW should cooperate with other parts of the contract, such as standards and pricing of services. Here is a partial list of the services that may appear in the work declaration: agreements often have automatic renewal clauses. In these contracts, the contract is renewed, unless the customer informs the 3PL of the termination within a specified period before the end of the contract. Most often, this period is 90 days. Remember that it takes months to select a new 3PL and months to move your business elsewhere. It takes 9 to 12 months to plan and open a fulfillment centre. Make sure that the termination language protects both parties and never terminates a contract without a fixed plan.
Agreements often set the payment of all invoices at the end of the contract by one of the parties. The stock can be maintained until the bills are paid, which can prevent the move. A customer should reserve the right to check and verify their account bills.
