J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JBHT) announced today the Company has again been named a top 10 third-party logistics (3PL) provider in the Inbound Logistics Top 100 3PL Excellence Awards, published in the July edition of the magazine. J.B. Hunt ranked fifth overall.
“J.B. Hunt is proud of our ability to safely and professionally handle transportation requirements across a wide variety of industries,” said Shelley Simpson, President, Integrated Capacity Solutions and Chief Marketing Officer. “Our asset-based, integrated, and flexible 3PL model gives our customers peace of mind; they know their freight is in good hands, from start to finish.”
Each year, Inbound Logistics editors select the best logistics solutions providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to readers’ burgeoning global supply chain and logistics challenges. IL editors selected this year’s class of Top 100 3PLs from a pool of more than 300 companies. The service providers selected are companies that, in the opinion of IL editors, offer the diverse operational capabilities and experience to meet readers’ unique supply chain and logistics needs.
“How a logistics solutions provider enables scalability for its customers is a key factor in the editors’ Top 100 3PL selection process,” says Felecia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics. “In today’s economic climate, 3PLs must produce direct savings for customers by optimizing the transport network, reducing inventory-to-sales ratios, or advancing the order-to-cash cycle. But it’s just as important for a logistics partner to act as a business change agent, driving their customers’ ability to match demand for their products more closely to supply, aligning enterprise operational performance to the larger economic trend. That is what J.B. Hunt does, and why we are happy to recognize it as a 2013 Top 100 3PL.”About J.B. Hunt J.B.
