Atlanta Bonded Warehouse Named by Inbound Logistics as a Top 100 3PL Provider for 2014
ATLANTA, GA., August 10, 2014 – Atlanta Bonded Warehouse Corporation (ABW) has been named by Inbound Logistics magazine as one of the nation’s Top 100 3PL Providers for 2014. ABW is featured in the just published July 2014 issue as a leading provider for logistics solutions across a variety of services. Inbound Logistics carefully assesses the capabilities of hundreds of providers of warehousing, transportation, and other supply chain services.
“World-class logistics performance is crucial for companies of all sizes – from Fortune 500 to SMBs. Given the scope and scale of that challenge, IL editors recognize that Atlanta Bonded provides the kinds of solutions that companies large and small rely on to solve the tactical logistics issues of serving customers better, faster, and more efficiently,” said Felicia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics. “ABW is responsive, and continues to anticipate evolving needs by also offering the strategic solutions required to drive business process improvement and change for customers. For those reasons, Inbound Logistics editors are proud to recognize Atlanta Bonded Warehouse as one of our 2014 Top 100 3PLs.
“Inbound Logistics' Top 100 3PL Provider's list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers we feel are best equipped to meet and surpass readers’ evolving outsourcing needs. Distilling the Top 100 is never an 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. Each year, Inbound Logistics editors select the best logistics solutions providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to our readers’ burgeoning global supply chain and logistics challenges. The service providers we selected are companies that, in the opinion of IL editors, offer the diverse operational capabilities and experience to meet readers' unique supply chain and logistics needs.”
Not only does ABW offer over 60 years of public and contract warehousing and co-packing services, but they also provide quality LTL and contract transportation services. Colonial Cartage Corporation (CCC), the asset-based refrigerated carrier and sister company of ABW, has expanded its service area for the second time in 15 months. CCC cites a growing customer base and dedication to customer service requirements as the reason for this expansion.
Hal Justice, Vice President of Sales and Operations for ABW, said, “This is the second consecutive year Inbound Logistics has named us to the Top 100 3PL list. This demonstrates that ABW is exceeding our customer’s service requirements and continuing to invest in our facilities, our people, and our technology.”
