Our News Release:“Inbound Logistics Magazine published a comprehensive guide this month with their annual Top 100 Motor Carriers directory and we’re proud to be on that list”, said Jim Walker, Executive Vice President, Lily Transportation Corp.
“This in-depth, ‘who’s who’ of truckers presents a snapshot of the industry’s leading players, as well as benchmark for the services transportation buyers need to consider when looking for new partners or evaluating current ones”, said Felecia Stratton, Editor at Inbound Logistics. “The Top 100 Motor Carriers list is a good place for transportation buyers to shift gears, slow down, and take a look at a group of truckers that are paving the road for innovation”. The editorial staff worked long and hard to select these 100 logistic leaders, evaluating surveys, conducting research, and talking with truckers and shippers alike.”
“The Trucking Perspectives data the Inbound Logistics staff compiled during the process was a real eye-opener”, said Walker. This year, Inbound Logistics reported 90 percent of shippers surveyed identified reliability as the most important criterion considered when selecting new carriers compared to 47 percent last year.
This year, Inbound Logistics reported 90 percent of shippers surveyed identified reliability as the most important criterion considered when selecting new carriers compared to 47 percent last year. “That’s a significant increase indicating that shippers focus is moving off of cost as the priority in carrier selection and getting back to other critical criterion like reliability and customer service”. ” To be on that list of ‘Top Motor Carriers’ demands superior service, competitive pricing, and being in-tune with the needs of customers at all times”. “Shippers are shopping around all the time for new carriers, the Inbound Logistics staff sent that message loud and clear with a statistic of forty-seven percent of motor freight buyers switching trucking companies in 2010”. “The information in the Trucking 2010 Perspectives piece, together with the Top 100 Motor Carrier directory will be helpful tools for transportation buyers getting ready to make decisions”. “Lily Transportation Corp. is thankful to be on that list.”
