Transportation Insight Named Leading 3PL by Global Trade Magazine

Versatility Across All Modes, Industries and Services Highlighted in Fifth Top 3PL Appearance

HICKORY, NC (September 25, 2017) – Transportation Insight, a multi-modal Enterprise Logistics Provider and end-to-end supply chain strategist, has been named one of America’s Leading 3PL Providers by Global Trade for the fifth consecutive year. The company is recognized by Global Trade for the versatility of its broad services portfolio that delivers significant improvements in overall supply chain performance. Transportation Insight’s technology, advanced analytics, intellectual capital and hallmark consultative Co-managed Logistics® approach empower clients with integrated intelligence and next-generation supply chain control. A robust parcel platform underscores the 3PL’s versatility to engineer multi-modal networks and architect e-commerce solutions for sustained competitive advantage for manufacturers, distributors and retailers.

“Transportation Insight works as an extension of our clients’ teams, helping them transition their operations from B2B to e-commerce by leveraging industry knowledge, knowing key performance indicators and developing strategies for rapid growth,” says Transportation Insight President and CEO Chris Baltz. “Using our integrated Enterprise Logistics solutions, we are able to reduce billing errors in our clients’ parcel and freight operations through our rigorous auditing process, improve customer service with added multi-modal insight into service failures and performance gaps, and optimize the utilization of parcel and LTL, a critical factor in selling direct versus commercially to the customer. The technology and business expertise we bring to our customers foster improved operational efficiency and customer service because of the significantly improved visibility to increasingly complex supply chains. We are pleased to have been named a Leading 3PL by Global Trade magazine for the fifth consecutive year.”

Regarded by many as “a different kind of 3PL,” Transportation Insight offers a consultative approach that helps companies grow their business and mitigate risks while reducing supply chain related costs. Transportation Insight Founder and Chairman Paul Thompson was recently recognized by Global Trade as a Global Thought Leader within a company anchored by 500 years of executive level supply chain experience. This deep domain expertise enables Transportation Insight to offer clients a unique approach to supply chain optimization, business process improvement, parcel shipment analysis and interactive business intelligence.

Dedicated to helping clients improve enterprise sustainability, Transportation Insight was named a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay® Excellence Awardee for its ability to help clients reduce vehicle miles, energy consumption and air pollution emissions as a byproduct of optimizing transportation networks and the supply chain.

For the past five years, Global Trade magazine has selected 3PLs for the America’s Leading 3PL Award.
