LOS ANGELES, Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Port Logistics Group, the nation's leading provider of gateway logistics services, today announced that it has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest-Growing Private Companies, to Inbound Logistics' Top 100 3PL Providers list, and to Global Trade's Best American 3PLs list in the "3PLs to Watch" category.
"We are excited to again be listed on the Inc. 5000 and recognized in the 3PL industry," said Greg Morello, Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer at Port Logistics Group. "These awards are a testament to Port Logistics Group's ability to manage the fast growth in our ecommerce, wholesale and retail channels while maintaining high quality service to our customers."
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved three-year growth of 433%. "The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
Inbound Logistics' Top 100 3PL Providers list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers that are best equipped to meet and surpass readers' evolving outsourcing needs. Distilling the Top 100 is never an easy task, and the process becomes increasingly difficult as more 3PLs enter the market and service providers from other functional areas develop value-added logistics capabilities. "Port Logistics Group continues to provide the logistics, transportation, and supply chain solutions Inbound Logistics readers need to achieve the visibility and control that drives successful supply chains," said Felicia Stratton, Editor of Inbound Logistics. "Port Logistics Group was selected as a 2016 Top 100 3PL Provider because it is flexible and responsive, anticipating customers' evolving needs with innovative solutions empowering logistics and supply chain excellence."
Global Trade editors compiled a list of service providers in 10 needs-based categories noting that, "Whatever the task or specialty, what these companies all share is exceptional dedication to customers and a willingness to absorb new ways and technologies while sticking to the core principles that have been proven effective over time." The Global Trade editors noted that Port Logistics Group has "become one of the fastest growing 3PLs and a leading provider of full-service logistics and distribution solutions at the point of entry into the domestic supply chain."
