JERICHO, NY – September 10, 2015 – JERICHO, NY – September 10, 2015 – Purolator International, a leading provider of cross-border logistics, has been recognized with a 2015 Quest for Quality Award from Logistics Management magazine. Conducted as a reader poll, the Quest for Quality Awards is the gold standard for customer satisfaction and performance excellence for carriers, ports, and logistics providers worldwide. Purolator International was recognized in the Airfreight Forwarders category for providing superior service quality. The awards will be presented at the 32nd Annual Quest for Quality Awards Gala on September 29th during the Council for Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) annual conference in San Diego, Calif.
“What makes the Quest for Quality Awards stand out in the market is the fact that the winners are determined by the readers of Logistics Management—the buyers of logistics and transportation services who put these carriers and service providers to work around the clock and around globe,” said Michael Levans, Group Editorial Director of Peerless Media, LLC., the publisher of Logistics Management.
Levan continued, “The growth of e-commerce and the subsequent evolution of omni-channel fulfillment has changed the game for both retailers and manufacturers, shortening lead times across the board. According to the readers of Logistics Management, the list of carriers and service providers receiving a Quest for Quality Award this year have been equal to the task, matching their ever-demanding service needs and helping them keep pace with the new speed of global business.”
“We’re honored to be named among the best in the industry for airfreight forwarding,” said John Costanzo, President, Purolator International. “Our custom airfreight and air charter solutions allow U.S. based companies to compete more successfully in international markets. With overnight service for industrial manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors supplying the manufacturing, mining, retail and aerospace industries, speed of order fulfillment is critical for maintenance, repair and overall operations."
About the Quest for Quality Awards
To determine the best of the best, Logistics Management (LM) readers—logistics, transportation, and supply chain decision makers—rate carriers, third-party logistics (3PL) service providers, and now U.S. port operators strictly on the basis of service quality. One of the most notable elements about the Quest for Quality is that it allows these shippers to vote in the genre of services they actually use and fully understand; in turn, they can vote for the providers that they feel have best delivered on quality service in specific niches.
This year, Logistics Management had 4,649 logistics and supply chain decision makers place their vote. This six-month research undertaking resulted in nine lists featuring 125 transportation and logistics services provider organizations that have gone for the gold and have achieved their mission of being designated “best of the best” by the readers of LM.
