Food Logistics Announces Its 2010 Top 85 3PLs

Leading business magazine presents annual listing of third-party logistics providers.

Melville, NY : Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the food supply chain, this week announced the fifth-annual listing of the Top 85 3PLs in its July/August 2010 issue.

In 2006, Food Logistics announced its first “50” list of third-party logistics providers that were helping food companies optimize their warehousing and transportation operations. Last year, the magazine expanded the list to 70 companies. This year, the magazine added 15 new 3PLs to the list, for a total of 85 companies. These 3PLs offer a broad scope of services and capabilities that enable food companies to reduce costs, increase flexibility and improve service levels.

“Food distribution is a very complex business and 3PLs play a crucial role in the supply chain,” explains Katherine Doherty, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics magazine.

“While most 3PLs have felt the effects of the economic downturn, the Top 85 continue to respond to their customers’ needs and rise to the logistical challenges that today’s food organizations face.

“Our annual list has grown to 85 companies, reflecting the changing and diverse needs of our readers,” says Doherty. “We’ve expanded this list to help our readers find and evaluate 3PL partners that can help them achieve their goals.”

After receiving nomination forms from end users and solution providers, the editorial staff culled through the submissions to compile this year’s Top 85 3PLs listing. Final recipients are featured in the cover story of the July/August issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at

The Top 85 3PLs is not a ranking. The alphabetical list has been designed to help FL readers find the third-party logistics providers to the food industry.
