LQTop40HICKORY, NC (June 18, 2013) – Transportation Insight has been selected by Logistics Quarterly magazine as a Top 40 North American 3PL in the publication’s ninth annual compilation of the best logistics providers across the continent. This highly regarded list features leading 3PLs conducting business in the United States and Canada.

“Over a decade ago, we saw an unserved need for a logistics provider to partner with businesses to deliver a co-managed, continuous improvement approach to optimize the entire supply chain without disrupting the internal resources and strengths of the client’s existing infrastructure,” says Transportation Insight Founder and Chairman Paul Thompson. “Today, we have assembled a best-of-breed team of logistics experts who are architecting world-class enterprise logistics solutions for our clients, from privately-held manufacturers, distributors and retailers to Fortune 500 companies. We are delighted to be recognized among the top 3PLs in North America.”

Transportation Insight defines and implements continuous improvement through an Extended LEAN™ approach. One of the most effective methods for enhancing the performance of a company’s supply chain, Extended LEAN examines processes outside a company’s four walls, applying LEAN principles throughout its supply chain. While maintaining and building upon existing capabilities and resources, companies connect the units of their supply chain and then perfect the system to create industry-wide value stream networks that build competitive advantage.
