OVERLAND PARK, Kan., September 29, 2015 – MIQ Logistics is named one of America’s leading 3PL (third-party logistics) providers for the second consecutive year in Global Trade magazine’s annual report. The report calls out MIQ Logistics for its excellence in specialized services.
“Customers come to us for our global, transportation and distribution services,” says John Carr, president and chief executive officer-MIQ Logistics. “However, it’s our specialized services within those areas of expertise where customers often find additional efficiencies for their supply chains. We call them our value-added services and they’re included in all our offerings.”\
Carr explains by giving several examples of the company’s value-added services.
- Engineering analysis performs productivity studies to eliminate waste and incorporate lean distribution processes.
- Purchase order management enables customers to make sourcing decisions further back in the supply chain to keep operations nimble and cost effective, while reducing supply chain disruptions.
- Kitting activities, which combine one or more items into a new product or SKU, can take place at the country of origin for faster entry into destination distribution channels.
In developing its list of America’s Leading 3PLs, Global Trade magazine partnered with the preeminent 3PL consultants, Armstrong & Associates, to compile a list of companies who deserve recognition in one of 10 different needs-based categories. The complete list is published in the August/September issue of Global Trade and is available online.
