For Inbound Logistics editors, selecting the annual Top 100 3PL Providers demands a great deal of industry and analysis, given the pace of change and the number of new entrants in the global outsourcing market. More than 300 companies submitted questionnaires for consideration this year, and IL editors conducted a diligent process of evaluating these surveys and speaking with companies and customers, in addition to conducting online research. The service providers the editors selected possess skill sets and resources capable of matching most outsourcing needs. Editors make their selection with the goal of providing a balanced and accurate assessment of readers’ needs and the 3PLs best-suited to meet their specific requirements.
