JERICHO, NY – August 21, 2019 – Purolator International, a leading provider of North American logistics services, today announced that it has been named to Inbound Logistics’ 2019 Top 100 3PL Providers list.  Every year Inbound Logistics editors evaluate more than 300 3PLs to ultimately pick the top 100 nationwide.  Purolator International was recognized for its ability to solve logistics challenges and improve processes.                            

“When choosing the 2019 Top 100 3PL Providers, Inbound Logistics editors looked for providers who offer transformative solutions that drive integration across internal and external business processes, and demonstrate excellence in optimizing transportation and logistics operations,” said Felecia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics . “We chose Purolator International because its solutions create cost savings and efficiencies across the entire value chain, and help solve specific logistics challenges and improve processes. Inbound Logistics is proud to honor Purolator International for innovative solutions empowering logistics and supply chain excellence in 2019.”

“We thank Inbound Logistics for once again recognizing Purolator International on this highly regarded list of 3PLs,” said Paul Tessy, Senior Vice President, International, Purolator.  “We’re proud of the partnerships we build with our clients.  By working with them to build a long term supply chain strategy, we understand their goals and utilize our flexible range of service options to make logistics management a competitive advantage.”   

Purolator International analyzes a customer’s current operations and builds a custom logistics solution, leveraging Purolator International’s flexible distribution network and unique Canadian expertise.  The U.S. network is made up of hubs, airports, strategically-located operations facilities and qualified transportation partners.  The U.S. network is supplemented by its unmatched network in Canada, maintained by Purolator International’s parent company, Purolator Inc., one of Canada’s largest providers of integrated freight and courier services; allowing customers to streamline their northbound activity from pick up in the U.S. to final delivery throughout all of Canada.

This unparalleled network is now poised to get even better. Purolator Inc. recently announced its plan to invest more than $1 billion through a five-year delivering the future growth and innovation strategy, which includes a new national hub set to open in Toronto in 2021.   

“These investments by Purolator Inc. will enable Purolator International to continue to offer unmatched delivery capabilities and the highest levels of customer service for its U.S. companies shipping to, from and within Canada,” added Tessy.

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. Inbound Logistics editors selected this year’s class of Top 100 3PLs from a pool of more than 300 companies. The service providers we selected are companies that, in the opinion of Inbound Logistics editors, offer the diverse operational capabilities and experience to meet readers’ unique supply chain and logistics needs.
