Landstar has been recognized as one of the industry’s leading transportation logistics providers in Logistics Management’s 2016 Quest for Quality Awards Survey for the following Truckload categories: Dry Freight Carriers, Expedited Motor Carriers, and Industrial and Heavy-Haul Carriers.
For more than three decades, Logistics Management has surveyed a representative sample of its readers to evaluate the transportation logistics service providers that they use. More than 4,725 logistics and supply chain decision makers cast their votes for the carriers and 3PLs providing outstanding customer service and performance excellence over the past year.
The 2016 Transport Topics’ annual survey of the Top 100 For-Hire Carriers once again ranked Landstar in the top 10: 9th Overall; Flatbed/Heavy Specialized - 1st; Truckload - 3rd; Air/Expedited - 6th; Intermodal/Drayage - 11th; Less Than Truckload - 32nd. The August 2016 issue of the publication ranks carriers overall and by sector.
And, Landstar Transportation Services companies were again this year recognized by Inbound Logistics magazine as a Top 100 3PL. This is the 14th year Landstar is on the prestigious list acknowledging 3PL excellence. Landstar was also recognized by Inbound Logistics with a Readers’ Choice: Top 10 3PL Excellence Award.
Inbound Logistics editors evaluate submitted information, conduct personal interviews and online research, and then compare that data against their readers’ global supply chain and logistics challenges. This year’s Top 100 3PLs were selected from a pool of more than 300 companies.
