FREEPORT, NEW YORK--(Marketwired - Aug. 8, 2016) - DB Schenker today announced that it has been selected a Top 100 Third Party Logistics (3PL) Provider by the editors of Inbound Logistics (IL) magazine. Every year, leading third-party logistics providers submit their credentials hoping to match their solutions with readers' business logistics needs.
It remains an increasingly difficult task for the editorial team to narrow down the list to only 100 top 3PL providers. DB Schenker was selected as a Top 100 3PL Provider because its solutions solve specific logistics challenges, improve processes, and create a ripple effect of efficiencies for readers across their entire value chain.
Commenting on the award, Felecia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics, said: "DB Schenker continues to provide the logistics, transportation, and supply chain solutions Inbound Logistics readers need to achieve the visibility and control that drives successful supply chains. DB Schenker was selected as a 2016 Top 100 3PL Provider because it is flexible and responsive, anticipating customers' evolving needs with innovative solutions empowering logistics and supply chain excellence."
"Today, many companies are struggling to balance advanced planning against the rigorous demands for agility, low-inventory solutions and complex distribution channels," added Robert Walpole, CEO of DB Schenker Inc. "DB Schenker continues to provide the right solutions to help our customers meet those challenges, acting as an enterprise change agent for efficiency and adaptability."
Top 100 Selection Methodology
Inbound Logistics' Top 100 3PL Provider's list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers that editors feel are best equipped to meet and surpass readers' evolving outsourcing 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, IL 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 nearly 300 companies. The service providers 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.
