Annual eyefortransport 3PL Awards Shortlist Revealed!

The shortlist for this year's eyefortransport European 3PL awards has been announced, based on the nominations by the members of the esteemed judging panel.

The top 4-10 companies in each of ten categories have been announced as finalists. The voting now opens to shippers (3PL customers) ahead of next month’s announcement of the winners.


Each year the eyefortransport 3PL Awards aim to recognise those 3PLs that continuously deliver excellence in logistics operations and superior service to their customers.  The awards are ultimately decided on by 3PL customers - the manufacturers and retailers who depend upon and work with logistics service providers everyday – and run in both the European (October anually) and North American (June annually) regions.


The winners of the final round of customer voting will be announced and celebrated at a reception at the annual 3PL Summit & Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum – the major industry meeting place for 3PLs and 3PL users.  The Awards Reception will be held at the Steigenberger Airport Hotel Amsterdam on November 13th 2013, and will be attended by executives, including the CEOs of many top 3PLs, and VP & SVP supply chains from major customers.


“It’s an important year for the 3PL awards,” said Chris Saynor, CEO of eyefortransport.  “The increasing commoditization of 3PLs, in Europe and other markets, is putting 3PL-customer relationships under significant pressure.  The finalists, chosen by our judging panel, represent companies who are successful in negotiating the fine line between protecting profits and fostering healthy, longterm, vested relationships in the fight against commoditisation.  We’re looking forward to revealing the winners next month.”
