NILES, Ill.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--AFN, (formerly known as Advantage Freight Network), was named
a Top 100 3PL Provider by Inbound Logistics for the fifth consecutive year.
TOP 100 SELECTION METHODOLOGY
Inbound Logistics' Top 100 3PL Providers list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers we feel 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. Each year, Inbound Logistics editors select the best
logistics solutions providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online
research, and comparing that data to our readers’ burgeoning global supply chain and logistics challenges. IL editors
selected this year's class of Top 100 3PLs from a pool of more than 300 companies. The service providers we
selected are companies that, in the opinion of IL editors, offer the diverse operational capabilities and experience to
meet readers' unique supply chain and logistics needs.
According to Felecia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics, “Recent economic times have forced companies to deal
with product scalability, demand volatility, access to capacity, and matching inventory more tightly to demand.
Experienced third-party logistics providers stepped up to the plate, and took the lead in offering suggestions and
helping to transform their customers’ businesses. AFN qualifies as an Inbound Logistics 2010 Top 100 3PL
Provider because it has shown consistent results in helping customers navigate stormy economic times.”
