Lakeland, Fla., Aug. 6, 2013 – Saddle Creek Logistics Services announced today that the company has been recognized as a top 3PL by Inbound Logistics, a leading industry publication.
Saddle Creek has earned a place on Inbound Logistics’ list of “Top 100 Third-Party Logistics Providers” for the 15th consecutive year. The annual list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers whom editors feel are best equipped to offer the diverse operational capabilities and experience necessary to meet readers’ unique supply chain and logistics needs.
Editors selected this year’s class of Top 100 3PLs from a pool of more than 300 companies by evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to readers’ growing supply chain and logistics challenges.
“How a logistics solutions provider enables scalability for its customers is a key factor in the editors’ Top 100 3PL selection process,” says Inbound Logistics editor Felecia Stratton. “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 Saddle Creek Logistics Services does, and why we are happy to recognize it as a 2013 Top 100 3PL.”
“Scalability and product customization are key areas of focus for Saddle Creek,” said Cliff Otto, Saddle Creek president. “We continually strive to give our customers solutions that allow them to accommodate changing market needs efficiently and cost effectively, so it is particularly meaningful for us to be recognized for our efforts in these areas.”
