MIQ Logistics Named a Top 100 3PL

Overland Park, KS, August 4, 2011–MIQ Logistics is pleased to announce its selection by Inbound Logistics magazine as a Top 100 3PL Provider for 2011. The publication reviews the credentials of hundreds of third-party logistics service providers before narrowing the field to just 100.

3PL Top 100According to the editors of Inbound Logistics, today’s business logistics leaders appreciate 3PLs that are proactive, take the lead in sharing best supply chain practices, and help drive enterprise transformation. Strategic supply chain vision is a key measurement of 3PL excellence.

As one Inbound Logistics reader says: “Our 3PL is critical to our business because it constantly formulates strategies that align our supply to our demand and cuts total cost of logistics, while improving customer service at the same time.” For having that kind of supply chain expertise and vision, Inbound Logistics editors recognize MIQ Logistics as a 2011 Top 100 3PL Provider.

“This month, MIQ Logistics celebrates its one-year anniversary. It’s particularly gratifying to see us included on this esteemed list,” says John Carr, president and chief operating officer. Carr notes that the company was ranked among the magazine’s top 100 multiple times since 2005 under its legacy names.

“I think our customers would agree that what sets us apart is the expertise and professionalism of our employees and their commitment to customers,” adds Carr. “We create strong solutions-based relationships based on customers’ transportation, distribution and global needs and we deliver a consistently high level of service excellence in locations around the world.”
