INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - August 27, 2014) - Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to global supply chain solutions for the food and beverage industry, this week announced those companies chosen for its 2014 Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers list.
Flagship Logistics Group is honored to once again be one of the Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers and it was profiled in the August 2014 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
The Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers serves as a resource directory of third-party logistics and cold storage providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.
"To have been chosen for this award several years in a row is a great honor and also very humbling considering the depth and breadth of providers in the marketplace today," exclaimed Keith Warren, President of Transportation for Flagship Logistics Group. "We always strive to provide unmatched customer service and supply chain innovation for both our clients and our carrier partners. We excel, not by being all things to all people, but by maintaining a laser focus within our chosen niche of temperature controlled food and beverage products, and more specifically on Less-Than-Truckload and Consolidation services within this category."
"Our growing list of 3PLs and cold storage providers indicates how important these two segments are to the food industry and the level of expertise and services required to support today's growers and processors, shippers, and grocery retailers," noted Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief for Food Logistics. "Assuring a safe and secure global food supply chain is paramount. In addition, reducing food waste, managing fuel and energy costs, and responding to new demands related to omnichannel retailing are just some of the expectations the food industry has of their 3PL and cold storage providers."
