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.”
