The editorial staff of Logistics Management (LM) is thrilled to offer the shipping community the results of the 27th Annual Quest for Quality Awards. This year, 108 providers of transportation and logistics services have received the ultimate vote of confidence, posting the highest scores across our lists of critical service criteria.
For more than a quarter century now, LM’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 considering the environment in which carriers and 3PLs found themselves operating over the past year, the staff agrees that walking away with a Quest for Quality Award in 2010 just may be one of the greatest accomplishments a transportation and logistics provider has ever achieved.
The Great Freight Recession—which began in December of 2007 and continued into late 2009—had a negative impact on every single segment of the global logistics system as shipment volumes plummeted. And while many carriers struggled to keep their heads above water, the savviest shippers continued to put more pressure on the carrier and 3PL community, demanding closer partnerships and deeper service commitments as they restructured distribution networks to maximize efficiency and minimize miles.
