Last week Food Logistics Magazine announced it’s sixth annual listing of the Top 100 3PLs — the leading third-party logistics providers for the food industry. Selected as one of 15 new companies to make the 2011 list, Lily is happy to achieve this “Best-in-Class” designation.
“Selecting the right logistics partner to manage your supply chain is of great importance to the future of any company’s operations,” explained Katherine Doherty, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics. “In the food industry, outsourcing has become a foundation of competitive advantage for many companies. We provide this (Top 100) list to help our readers find the best providers for their business”. Ms. Doherty goes on to say, “Food distribution is a very complex business, and these providers play a crucial role in the supply chain. While most 3PLs have felt the effects of the economic downturn, the Top 100 continue to respond to their customer’s needs and rise to the logistical challenges that today’s food organizations face.”
Lily was included as part of this exclusive group due to our extensive experience and broad scope of services and capabilities which enable food companies to manage costs, increase flexibility, improve service levels and operational efficiency and reduce capital expenditures.
