Top 100 Selection Methodologies
Inbound Logistics‘ Top 100 3PL Provider’s list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers the magazine feels are best equipped to meet and surpass readers’ evolving logistical needs. Distilling the Top 100 is never an easy task, and the process becomes increasingly difficult as more 3PLs enter the market and service providers from other functional areas develop value-added logistics capabilities. Each year, Inbound Logistics editors select the best logistics solutions providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to our readers’ burgeoning global supply chain and logistics challenges. IL editors selected this year’s class of Top 100 3PLs from a pool of more than 300 companies. The service providers we selected are companies that, in the opinion of IL editors, offer the diverse operational capabilities and experience to meet readers’ unique supply chain and logistics needs.
SupplyChainBrain’s 10th annual list of 100 Great Supply Chain Partners is the result of a six-month on-line poll in which supply chain professionals were asked to nominate vendors and service providers whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service and overall supply chain performance. Nominations were received for hundreds of trading partners in every aspect of supply chain management.
