Logistics Evolves into Strategic Business Concern

Transportation Insight Sees Double Digit Upswing in Armstrong & Associates' Ranking of Top 50 3PLs.

Transportation Insight, an Enterprise Logistics Provider recognized for excellence in supply chain and business process improvements, advanced its ranking by third-party logistics consultancy Armstrong and Associates.

According to A&A's annual list of the Top 50 domestic 3PLs and the Top 50 Global 3PLs, Transportation Insight climbed 11 positions from #37 to #26 on the list of largest U.S. 3PLs and earned a spot on A&A's list of largest Global 3PLs for the first time.

The rankings by gross logistics revenue appear in the June issue of Logistics Management Magazine. Transportation Insight's increases are attributed to strategic acquisitions, organic sales and client retention.  

“Our primary objective is to engineer solutions that help our clients align their supply chain to strategic business goals and continuously improve their enterprise value streams,” says Transportation Insight President and CEO Chris Baltz.

Transportation Insight's services for the end-to-end supply chain include carrier sourcing, supply chain and parcel advanced analytics, parcel audit and optimization, freight bill payment and audit, technology, network optimization, warehousing, international, LEAN consulting, client training and supply chain sourcing of indirect materials including secondary packaging.

Transportation Insight Executive Vice President of Enterprise Business Solutions Ken Wacker says, “Logistics has evolved into a strategic business concern—from a back office function to a boardroom agenda item—as a result more shippers are seeking multi-modal capabilities for complete end-to-end integration.

“By linking all transportation modes, enterprise shippers leverage the entirety of the supply chain to realize optimized, more economical logistics performance.
