Kenco Ranked A Top 10 Logistics Provider

By Readers Of Inbound Logistics Magazine

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

For the second year in a row, Kenco—a provider of distribution, transportation, and supply chain intelligence solutions—was named to Inbound Logistics’ list of Top 10 logistics providers in North America.

Every year, the magazine’s editors poll their readers about the quality of third party logistics companies and select the Top 100. They then ask their readers to rank the candidates for the Top 10 list. The 2014 Top 100 3PLs and the Readers’ Choice Top 10 Excellence Award winners are profiled in the July edition of Inbound Logistics. Kenco is ranked at No. 8 on the list.

“This is great news, and shows how much our customers value Kenco and its services,” said David Caines, president of Kenco Logistic Services. “It also demonstrates that every person on our 3,500-member team is committed to providing common sense solutions for an uncommon value.” 

Many readers who voted also submitted comments about their relationship with Kenco:

“Kenco goes beyond operational excellence to provide thought leadership and a high level of customer service.” 

"Kenco has saved our company more than 30 percent on transportation.” 

“Kenco has provided us with custom warehousing, transportation, and IT solutions. It provides…continuous improvements that make an impact.” 

According to Felicia Stratton, editor, Inbound Logistics, the Top 100 selection process is rigorous. “When Inbound Logistics editors select the Top 100 3PL providers, they carefully analyze how a logistics solutions provider enables scalability for its customers. 3PLs today must produce direct savings for shippers by optimizing the transport network, reducing inventory-to-sales ratios, or advancing the order-to-cash cycle. But it’s just as important for a logistics partner to act as a business change agent, driving their customers’ ability to match demand for their products more closely to supply, aligning enterprise operational performance to the larger economic trend. That is what Kenco does, and why IL editors have selected Kenco as a 2014 Top 10 3PL.”

Details about the 2014 awards can be found in the July edition of Inbound Logistics.
