The Large and Small of Being a Top 10 3PL

Kenco top 10 3pl

Kenco Logistic Services was named a 2013 Readers’ Choice: Top 10 3PL Excellence Award winner in the annual qualitative assessment by the editors of Inbound Logistics magazine. Kenco is ranked #7 on the prestigious third-party logistics (3PL) list.

With more than 60 years of experience, over 90 facilities totaling more than 30 million square feet, and our long standing Lean Six Sigma focus; this ranking validates the advantages we give our customers in today’s highly competitive environment.

Achieving this recognition is an accomplishment to be proud of and establishes our position against larger competition. Comparison to your competitors is the nature of this industry, and this award is another validation of Kenco’s ability to rise above much larger organizations. As our customers have been quoted to say, “Kenco is big enough to handle tough business, and small enough that the customer knows they are important to Kenco.”

I believe the dedication of our entire 4,700-member team has made this achievement possible. Our longstanding commitment to integrity over profitability empowers all of us to deliver uncommon value for our customers.

The readers who voted submitted comments, which included these observations by top Kenco customers:

“Kenco wants what is best for our company, and always tries to achieve it.”

“Kenco has never let our company down as a 3PL service provider. I trust their knowledge and dedication, and know that every load they book for us will be handled with professionalism and on-time delivery.”

According to Inbound Logistics (IL) Editor Felecia Stratton, “Tactical operational results are fundamental to 3PL value, but so is the strategic vision of experienced logistics providers. IL readers say they appreciate 3PLs that are consultative, proactive, take the lead in sharing best supply chain practices, and help to drive enterprise business process improvement. Because it demonstrates that kind of supply chain expertise and vision, IL editors recognize Kenco as a 2013 Top 10 3PL Provider.”

Kenco continues to build industry leading relationships with our customers. Whirlpool, Honeywell, Cummins, Green Mountain Coffee, and Stryker Medical are just a few of those who have been with us for many years, through multiple contracts. Our commitment to partnership ahead of profits and focus on value have fostered industry leading relationships. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their confidence and continued support.
