Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 04, 2011
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 North American 3PL customers - the manufacturers and retailers who depend upon and work with logistics service providers every day.
This year’s awards received the most customer votes in their five year history, and to celebrate the finalists and winners, eyefortransport hosted a Gala Dinner at the Georgia Aquarium on the evening of June 22nd. Senior management from 3PLs and their customers were there to receive accolades, and celebrate the finalists. Representatives from over 40 major 3PLs, as well as Heads of Supply Chain for major 3PL users were in attendance.
“This has been a challenging year for 3PLs and their customers – the market continued to fluctuate, and there have been major period of doubt and realignment on both sides of the table,” 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 period. It’s an honour to preside over these awards.”
