For nearly 30 years, Logistics Management’s Quest for Quality has been regarded in the transportation and logistics industry as the most important measure of customer satisfaction and performance excellence—and the annual Quest for Quality Awards Dinner has been widely considered the best evening of the year for carrier and 3PL executive networking.

This year’s awards dinner will take place on Wednesday, October 5, at the Philadelphia Marriott from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., the final evening of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) Annual Conference.

Our entire Logistics Management editorial staff will be in attendance this year to present the 2011 Quest for Quality Awards to the 111 winners.
