Inbound Logistics editors selected this year's class of Top 100 3PLs from a pool of more than 300 companies. Each year, IL editors select the best logistics solutions providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to the readers' global supply chain and logistics challenges. 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. "Port Logistics Group 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 Port Logistics Group as one of our 2014 Top 100 3PLs."

Global Trade editors worked in partnership with Armstrong & Associates to select 105 leading 3PLs in 10 categories. "Global Trade is very pleased to have the opportunity to recognize Port Logistics Group for its excellent work," said Patrick Dooley, Editor of Global Trade. "This is the second year we have included the company among our picks of the industry's best, and we're looking forward to tracking its progress as it grows and continues to impress its clients."

The Global Trade editors called attention to Port Logistics Group's strategic gateway locations at five top port areas in the U.S. – New York-New Jersey, Long Beach, CA, Seattle-Tacoma, Savannah, and Houston. "Port Logistics Group specializes in services specific to port operations – drayage, cross-docking and transloading, and a host of warehouse and distribution services," stated the editors.

"Our specialized, value-added services are critical components of our overall service offering at every gateway location," said Greg Morello, Chief Marketing Officer of Port Logistics Group.
