OVERLAND PARK, Kan., July 31, 2014 – Global Trade magazine named MIQ Logistics one of America’s Top 3PLs (third-party logistics providers) and one of the Top 10 providers in its Most Versatile category. The magazine will publish its complete list of leading 3PLs in the September/October issue.
“We are pleased to be rated as a leading logistics-services provider and recognized for our versatility by Global Trade,” says John Carr, president and chief executive officer-MIQ Logistics. Carr explains that the flexible approach and global capabilities of MIQ Logistics likely contributed to the recognition.
“Our method is to get a clear picture of our customers’ business, including where processes breakdown or cost more than they should. Once we understand the problem, we can design the appropriate solution,” adds Carr. He notes that MIQ Logistics doesn’t rely on “off-the-shelf” solutions and instead draws on its global network, comprehensive portfolio of transportation, distribution and global services, and industry expertise. This is a real differentiator in the market place as many of our competitors are inhibited by their size and rigid infrastructure. The flexibility and versatility of MIQ Logistics is clearly being recognized by our customers through this acknowledgement.
In developing its list of America’s Top 3PLs, Global Trade magazine identified categories of shippers’ needs based on input from leading 3PL market research and the industry-consulting firm, Armstrong & Associates. In addition to the Most Versatile category, other areas of need identified by the publication include technology, temperature control, innovation, green operations, specialized services, global services, domestic services and specialty cargo. An additional category is 3PLs to Watch.
