BOSTON, Aug 15, 2012 — Lily Transportation Corp., a leading Dedicated Contract Carrier in North America, today announced it has been named to the Top 100 3PL and Cold Storage Providers list published by Food Logistics Magazine, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the food and beverage supply chain. Lily was one of 15 newcomers to the list in 2011 and has once again made the list of top providers in 2012, reflecting the company’s best-in-class supply chain execution in the food and beverage sector.

“The companies on this year’s list offer tremendous value to their customers in the food and beverage sector, starting with their understanding of the requirements and demands unique to this space,” said Lara L.

In addition, the constant introduction of new products coupled with increased consumer demand for more fresh produce raises the stakes even higher.”
