Transportation Insight Named 2016 Top 100 3PL by Inbound Logistics Magazine
HICKORY, NC (August 16, 2016) – Transportation Insight, a leading global third-party logistics (3PL) provider, has been selected as an Inbound Logistics Top 100 Third-Party Logistics Provider for the fifth consecutive year. Transportation Insight was selected by the Inbound Logistics editorial team for its state-of-the-art Enterprise Logistics solutions that deliver value, end to end, across the supply chain.
“Transportation Insight focuses on eliminating waste from within our clients’ supply chains as we serve them in our role of trusted logistics partner and advisor,” says Transportation Insight President and CEO Chris Baltz. “The tremendous depth and scope of our carrier management experience, logistics optimization and execution technology, supply chain engineering capabilities and business insight tools sets us apart from other logistics providers in the North American marketplace.”
In addition to the spotlight on Transportation Insight’s position as a Top 100 3PL provider, the July 2016 edition of Inbound Logistics includes an in-depth examination of challenges in the omni-channel marketplace provided by Transportation Insight Vice President of Client Solutions Rick Brumett. The thought leadership “Logistics Knowledgebase” mirrors Transportation Insight’s mission to identify and mitigate client challenges in transportation logistics and supply chain management.
Transportation Insight’s robust Enterprise Logistics solutions address many key challenges clients face, such as capacity issues, government and industry regulations and rising operational costs.

“The growth of the omni-channel market is creating strain across the shipping landscape.

More broadly over time, as we encourage our clients to evaluate and innovate and to continuously repeat that cycle, we believe our clients will see that logistics excellence will lead to dominance in their marketplace, whether by reputation or size, or both.”
Inbound Logistics’ Top 100 3PL Provider’s list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers that are best equipped to meet and surpass evolving outsourcing needs. 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 their readers’ burgeoning global supply chain and logistics challenges.
“Every year, leading third-party logistics providers of all shapes and sizes submit their credentials, hoping to match their solutions with our readers’ business logistics needs. It remains an increasingly difficult task for the Inbound Logistics editorial team to narrow down the list to only 100 top 3PL providers,” says Inbound Logistics Editor Felecia Stratton. “Transportation Insight was selected as a Top 100 3PL Provider because its solutions solve specific logistics challenges, improve processes and create a ripple effect of efficiencies for our readers across their entire value chain.”
