The France based Transport and Logistics Group and its international logistics network was selected as a Top 100 3PL Provider because of its capacity to identify specific logistics challenges for different industries, the ability to structurally improve processes, and by the proven success of creating a ripple effect of efficiencies for customers across their value chain.
“Every year, leading third-party logistics providers of all shapes and sizes submit their credentials, hoping to match their solutions with our readers’ business logistics needs,” said Felecia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics. “It remains an increasingly difficult task for the Inbound Logistics editorial team to narrow down the list to only 100 top 3PL providers. GEODIS 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.”
“We are delighted that GEODIS has been recognized by Inbound Logistics and has achieved the high standard required by the publication to be included in the Top 100 3PL Providers list for 2016,” said Marie-Christine Lombard, Chief Executive Officer of GEODIS. “We are focused on providing high-quality and innovative solutions to overcome our customers’ logistical constraints.”

TOP 100 SELECTION METHODOLOGY
Inbound Logistics’ Top 100 3PL Provider’s list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers that are best equipped to meet and surpass the outsourcing needs of shippers reading Inbound Logistics. Entering the Top 100 list becomes increasingly difficult as more 3PLs enter the market and service providers from other functional areas develop value-added logistics capabilities. Each year, Inbound Logistics editors select the best logistics solutions providers by evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing publicly available data. The service providers selected are companies that offer the diverse operational capabilities and experience to meet shippers’ unique supply chain and logistics needs.
