Purolator International Named a Top Third-Party Logistics Provider

JERICHO, NY – August 11, 2016 – Purolator International, a leading provider of cross-border logistics, today announced that it has been named to Inbound Logistics’ Top 100 3PL Providers list.  By continuing to evolve and strategically adapt its products and services to accommodate customer needs, Purolator International is recognized on this highly respected list, following a thorough analysis by Inbound Logistics editors.

“Every year, leading third-party logistics providers of all shapes and sizes submit their credentials, hoping to match their solutions with our readers’ business logistics needs.  It remains an increasingly difficult task for the Inbound Logistics editorial team to narrow down the list to only 100 top 3PL providers,” said Felecia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics.  “Purolator International was selected as a Top 100 3PL Provider because its solutions solve specific logistics challenges, improve processes, and create a ripple effect of efficiencies for our readers across their entire value chain.”

Today, Purolator International’s business is evenly divided between business to business (B2B) and business to consumer (B2C) shipments.  The continued rise in international ecommerce and omni-channel has contributed to the significant growth in Purolator’s consumer solutions.  On the B2B front, with the trend moving towards leaner inventories, Purolator is working closely with its customers for expedited and/or emergency shipments to keep production lines up and running.

Purolator International also launched PuroLogistics last year to provide customers with a customized solution to optimize their supply chain every step of the way, including import services, customs clearance, port recovery and inland U.S. and Canadian forwarding and delivery, transportation management, as well as inventory and seasonal demand management, consolidation services and returns processing – with all of the data integrated into the customer’s existing IT platform.

“In today’s global marketplace, it’s an exciting time for Purolator International.  Our cross border shipping and logistics solutions are designed to help U.S. based companies leverage international opportunities in a cost effective way,” said John Costanzo, President, Purolator International.  “We’re incredibly proud and honored to once again be named as a Top 100 3PL Provider, and thank the editors for recognizing our continued growth.” 

Inbound Logistics‘ Top 100 3PL Provider’s list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers that the magazine’s editors feel are best equipped to meet and surpass readers’ evolving outsourcing needs. Each year, Inbound Logistics selects the best logistics solutions providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to readers’ burgeoning global supply chain and logistics challenges.  Inbound Logistics editors selected this year’s class of Top 100 3PLs from a pool of nearly 300 companies.  The service providers 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.

The complete list of the 2016 Top 100 3PL Providers appears in the July issue.
