About Logistics Management and the Quest for Quality awards
Now in its 53rd year of publication, Logistics Management magazine and logisticsmgmt.com are the leading business-to-business information resources for logistics and transportation professionals in charge of the planning, management, purchase of freight transportation services.
To determine the best of the best, LM readers—logistics, transportation and supply chain decision makers—rate carriers, third-party logistics (3PL) service providers and U.S. port operators strictly on the basis of service quality. One of the most notable elements about the Quest for Quality Awards is that it calls these shippers to vote in the genre of services they actually use; in turn, they vote for the providers that they think have best delivered on quality service in specific niches.
This year, LM had 5,437 logistics and supply chain decision makers cast their votes resulting 129 transportation and logistics services providers who earned Quest for Quality gold.
