About the Quest for Quality Awards
To determine the best of the best, LM readers - logistics, transportation, and supply chain decision makers - rate carriers, third-party logistics (3PL) service providers, and now U.S. port operators strictly on the basis of service quality. One of the most notable elements about the Quest for Quality is that it allows these shippers to vote in the genre of services they actually use and fully understand; in turn, they can vote for the providers that they feel have best delivered on quality service in specific niches.
You can find the full list of winners from each Quest for Quality category in the August issue of Logistics Management and online at http://www.logisticsmgmt.com/article/30th_annual_quest_for_quality_simply_the_best
