Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
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.
The winners of the final round of customer voting will be announced and celebrated at a Gala Reception at the annual 3PL Summit & Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum – the major industry meeting place for 3PLs and 3PL users. The Gala Awards Reception will be held at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in Chicago on the evening of June 18th, and will be attended by 500 executives, including the CEOs of many top 3PLs, and VP & SVP supply chains from major customers.
“It’s a very exciting year for the 3PL awards,” said Katharine O’Reilly, the Executive Director of eyefortransport. “We’ve had a great voter response, and the competition in some categories is fierce. It’s clear that happy customers are really willing to support their best logistics partners. This represents a real sense of partnership in the industry, and reflects longer and more stable relationships that are a very positive trend.”
