For the fifth consecutive year, Crowley Maritime Corp.’s logistics group has been recognized as one of the best-equipped industry providers after being named a 2013 Inbound Logistics Top 100 Third-Party Logistics (3PL) Provider.

Editors selected Crowley, along with the company’s fellow honorees, from hundreds of candidates, based on its ability to offer diverse operational capabilities, scalability and experience to meet readers' unique supply chain and logistics needs.

"This honor is a testament to the diligence and dedication our employees show every day to differentiate our company in the marketplace as a unique logistics and liner shipping provider,” said Crowley’s Frank Larkin , senior vice president and general manager, logistics. “We understand our customers’ unique needs and we pride ourselves on tailoring our services to meet their requirements, ultimately helping to make their supply chains run as smoothly as possible. It is an absolute honor to once again be recognized for our work by a panel of our peers.”

According to Inbound Logistics,  distilling the Top 100 is no easy task, and the process becomes increasingly difficult as more 3PLs enter the market and service providers from other functional areas develop value-added logistics capabilities. Inbound Logistics magazine editors select the best logistics solutions providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to readers' burgeoning global 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,” said Felecia Stratton, editor, Inbound Logistics. “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.
