Kenco Ranked As A Top 10 Logistics Provider By Readers Of Inbound Logistics Magazine

For the fifth year in a row, Kenco was named to Inbound Logistics’ list of Top 10 logistics providers in North America.

Every year, the magazine’s editors poll their readers about the quality of third party logistics (3PL) companies and select the Top 100. They then ask their readers to rank the candidates for the Top 10 list. The 2017 Top 100 3PLs and the Readers’ Choice Top 10 Excellence Award winners are profiled in the July edition of Inbound Logistics. Kenco is ranked at No. 7 on the prestigious list.

“This is great news, and shows how much our customers value Kenco and its services,” said David Caines, president of Kenco Logistic Services. “It also demonstrates that every person on our 5,000-member team is committed to providing common sense solutions for an uncommon value.”

Many readers who voted also submitted comments about their relationship with Kenco like this one:

"Kenco is an excellent supply chain partner. It's very customer-focused and patient."—J.T., associate director, customer fulfillment

According to Felicia Stratton, editor, Inbound Logistics, the Top 100 selection process is rigorous. “When Inbound Logistics editors select the Top 100 3PL providers, they carefully analyze how a logistics solutions provider enables scalability for its customers. 3PLs today must produce direct savings for shippers by optimizing the transport network, reducing inventory-to-sales ratios, or advancing the order-to-cash cycle. But it’s just as important for a logistics partner to act as a business change agent, driving their customers’ ability to match demand for their products more closely to supply, aligning enterprise operational performance to the larger economic trend. That is what Kenco does, and why IL editors have selected Kenco as a 2017 Top 10 3PL.”

Details about the 2017 awards can be found in the July edition of Inbound Logistics.
