Kenco Chairwoman and CEO Jane Kennedy Greene said, “The dedication of our entire 4,700-member team has made this achievement possible. Our longstanding commitment to integrity over profitability empowers all of us to use common sense that results in uncommon value for our customers.”

According to IL Editor Felecia Stratton, “Tactical operational results are fundamental to 3PL value, but so is the strategic vision of experienced logistics providers. IL readers say they appreciate 3PLs that are consultative, proactive, take the lead in sharing best supply chain practices, and help to drive enterprise business process improvement. Because it demonstrates that kind of supply chain expertise and vision, IL editors recognize Kenco as a 2013 Top 10 3PL Provider.”
