Appleton, Wisconsin (PRWEB) October 9, 2008
WOW Logistics has been recognized by Food Logistics as a Top 50 3PL provider servicing the food industry for the third consecutive year.
Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the food supply chain, announced the third-annual listing of the Top 50 3PLs in its September 2008 issue. The Top 50 3PL is a listing of third-party logistics providers that are helping food, beverage and CPG companies gain a competitive logistical advantage.
"Today, many food companies are outsourcing various supply chain activities to gain a competitive advantage," explained Katherine Doherty, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics magazine. "Selecting the right 3PL is vital to the success of a company's overall operations--it's a long-term commitment. Companies need to have an organized process for selecting and working with a potential 3PL as well as a list of appropriate candidates."
Jamie Wally, Vice President of Sales & Marketing with WOW, adds "We truly appreciate the honor of being voted one of the top 3PL providers in the food industry. With over 30 years of experience in handling food-grade products, we understand the importance of providing solutions and facilities that work for our customers.
