Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Kenco, a provider of distribution, transportation, and supply chain intelligence solutions, was named a 2013 Readers’ Choice: Top 10 3PL Excellence Award winner in the annual qualitative assessment by the editors of Inbound Logistics magazine. This year, Kenco made the third-party logistics (3PL) list ranked at No. 7.

 “Our 2013 Readers' Choice Top 10 3PL Excellence Awards give logistics managers a chance to praise the providers who make a difference for their businesses,” according to the publication. “Supply chain professionals from companies including consumer packaged goods, manufacturers, food companies, automakers, and retailers—both brick-and-mortar and e-commerce—weighed in, casting 9,276 ballots in this year's survey.” 

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.”

Many readers who voted also submitted comments, which included these observations by top Kenco customers: 

"Kenco wants what is best for our company, and always tries to achieve it."

"Kenco has never let our company down as a 3PL service provider. I trust their knowledge and dedication, and know that every load they book for us will be handled with professionalism and on-time delivery." 

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.”
