The service providers 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.

"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 Port Logistics Group 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 Felecia Stratton, Editor of Inbound Logistics.

For those reasons, Inbound Logistics editors are proud to recognize Port Logistics Group as one of our 2014 Top 100 3PLs."
