Each year the eyefortransport 3PL Awards aim to recognise those 3PLs that continuously deliver excellence in logistics operations and superior service to their customers. The awards are decided on by European 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 will be hosted by eyefortransport, and followed by a reception where senior management from the winning 3PLs, the nominees and their customers will celebrate the winners. Representatives from over 40 major 3PLs, as well as Heads of Supply Chain for major 3PL users will all be in attendance.
“This has been a challenging year for 3PLs and their customers – the market continued to fluctuate, and there have been major opportunities and risks,” said Katharine O’Reilly, Executive Director of eyefortransport. “The awards this year represent customers’ renewed faith in their 3PLs ability to deliver the service they need both during a recession, and in the rebound and growth period. As the industry moves towards new challenges and opportunities, these relationships will make or break both sides of the relationship. It’s an honour to preside over these awards.”
