Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 1, 2010
Each year the eyefortransport 3PL Awards aim to recognize those 3PLs that continuously deliver excellence in logistics operations and superior service to their customers. The awards are decided on by 3PL customers - the manufacturers and retailers who depend upon and work with logistics service providers everyday.
As such, these awards take on a special significance, and the winners can feel confident in the knowledge that their customers have chosen them as best of breed partners in supply chain excellence.
The awards ceremony was hosted by Dr. John Langley, Professor of Supply Chain Management, Georgia Tech and presented by Greg Javor, VP Global Supply Chain Operations, Starbucks. “This has been a trying year for 3PLs and their customers,” said Katharine O’Reilly, the Event Director and eyefortransport’s Senior Vice President of Research. “The awards this year represent customers’ renewed faith in their 3PLs ability to deliver the service they need both during and after a recession. As the industry moves towards new challenges and opportunities, these relationships will make or break both sides of the relationship. It’s an honor to preside over these awards.”
