Commissions can be complicated for third-party logistics (3PL) providers, especially with potentially complex variable pay structures that include salary, commissions, bonuses, and other incentives.

There are several strategies to consider for calculating 3PL commissions. One of the more popular approaches is the draw against commission. This method guarantees a stable paycheck, with the draw amount acting much like a cash advance for representatives. Another option calculates a “seat cost” and pays commissions once the seat cost is covered. In this method, a multiple of the salary is used to calculate a threshold below which no incentive pay is earned. Once the seat cost is covered, a commission plan kicks in.

Your business may use different formulas for different sales areas or add in other bonus structures at various levels of sales activity. Regardless of your strategy’s complexity, a comprehensive commission management platform can help you figure it out.
