Recognizing 3PL Excellence -- Fourth Consecutive Year Readers Confirm BNSF Logistics as Top 10 Logistics Provider in Annual '3PL Excellence Award' Survey

SPRINGDALE, AR--(Marketwire - August 10, 2007) - BNSF Logistics, LLC has been named one of the top logistics providers for the fourth consecutive year in Inbound Logistics' annual "Top 10 3PL Excellence Award" survey.

Inbound Logistics has found the secret to identifying the industries' best 3rd party logistics providers through its reader nomination process. In this ever-competitive environment, readers nominated over 400 companies and cast nearly 4,000 votes, which substantiates that service and innovation are key differentiators that customers will take time to recognize.

Felicia Stratton, editor, Inbound Logistics, said, "Year after year, the annual reader participation in the nomination process gets more and more competitive and each year it gives me great pleasure to see the results speak for themselves." Stratton adds, "Customers are looking for an innovative and flexible service provider that is willing to adapt, change and anticipate current and future needs, so it isn't any surprise that these same readers nominated BNSF Logistics, again, for the fourth consecutive year."

"As we grow and develop BNSF Logistics, we continue to listen to our customers and focus on our employees. This award continues to affirm our progress, and we thank our customers and I thank our employees," stated Eric Wolfe, vice president and general manager of BNSF Logistics. "We will continue to evolve our service portfolio to reflect our most current and future customer needs."
