CONCORD, N.C., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation has been selected as a 2013 Quest for Quality Award recipient by Peerless Research Group and Logistics Management magazine. In fact, Cardinal ranks #2 out of more than 120 companies in the Third Party Logistics category and leads 4 of 5 categories including: carrier selection/negotiation, inventory management, logistics information systems, and order fulfillment.
"When you consider the challenging environment in which transportation and logistics service providers have had to manage over the past year, we believe that walking away with a Quest for Quality Award in 2013 is nothing less than a monumental achievement that should be celebrated," says Michael Levans, Group Editorial Director of Logistics Management Magazine.
Each year since 1983, Logistics Management magazine has surveyed a representative sample of its readers, who are logistics and supply chain decision-makers, to evaluate transportation carriers, ports, and service providers with whom they do business. In 2013, there were 6,179 total responses to the Quest for Quality survey – 1,470 more than last year. In order to be a "winner," a company must receive at least 5% of the category vote.
Vin McLoughlin, Chairman at Cardinal Logistics Management has this to say about the award. "We at Cardinal are most proud to have ranked number one in four of five categories, especially considering the formidable competition of other larger, globally-known firms. We are very grateful for our customers who provide for our very existence. This award is a tribute to all of the hard-working, passionate people at Cardinal who know that if you place customers and drivers first, good things result."
