Inbound Logistics has selected Distribution Technology as being among the industry’s Top 100 3PL Providers, a distinction we have received each year for more than a decade.

Through the annual list, Felecia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics, said the magazine’s editors recognize third-party logistics providers such as Distribution Technology who support businesses when they face unexpected demand and who allow enterprise managers to maintain customer service levels during periods of explosive growth.

Stratton said Inbound Logistics editors look for 3PLs that emphasize making investments that drive innovative logistics solutions. “World-class 3PLs offer new and more efficient ways to wring every ounce of productivity from enterprise operations,” she said.

Because Distribution Technology empowered logistics and supply chain excellence in 2022 with best-in-class solutions that drive integration across internal and external business processes, and demonstrated excellence in optimizing transportation and logistics operations, Inbound Logistics editors chose Distribution Technology as a 2022 Top 100 3PL Provider,” Stratton said. “Distribution Technology solutions insulated customers from disruption and drove efficiencies across the entire value chain, meriting this recognition.”

Inbound Logistics‘ Top 100 3PL Providers list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers the magazine’s editors feel are best equipped to meet and surpass its audience’s evolving outsourcing needs. Each year, Inbound Logistics editors select the best logistics solutions providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to burgeoning global supply chain and logistics challenges.

According to the magazine, the service providers the magazine selected are “companies that, in the opinion of the editors of Inbound Logistics, offer the diverse operational capabilities and experience that drives efficiency and operational excellence for today’s demand-driven enterprises.”
