SPRINGDALE, Ark. — BNSF Logistics LLC has been named one of the top logistics providers for the seventh consecutive year by readers of Inbound Logistics magazine in its annual “Top 10 3PL Excellence” awards program.
More than 6,000 votes were cast in this year’s survey, for over 800 unique third-party logistics providers.
“Recent economic times have forced companies to deal with product scalability, demand volatility, access to capacity, and matching inventory more tightly to demand,” stated Felecia Stratton, Editor of Inbound Logistics. “BNSF Logistics qualifies because it has shown consistent results in helping customers navigate stormy economic times.”
“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 our readers’ burgeoning global supply and logistics challenges,” said Stratton. “Inbound Logistics selected BNSF Logistics as a 2010 Top 100 3PL Provider because of its successful track record in acting as a business change agent for its customers, while delivering the operational efficiency needed to be globally competitive.”
“In the past year, supply chain volatility was at seemingly an all time high, with weak demand, lean inventory, and capacity challenges on a domestic and international basis. This volatility has required team BNSF Logistics to refocus on our core strengths of operations flexibility and creativity to ensure value generation for our customers,” stated Eric Wolfe, vice president and general manager, BNSF Logistics. “The recognition from Inbound Logistics’ readers and editors indicates that we are making tactical and strategic decisions that have long-term benefits. We appreciate the vote of confidence in our broad service capabilities and modal flexibility.”
