Evans Proves Quality, Talent, Innovation Keys to Being Logistics Leader
MELVINDALE, Mich., August 15, 2016 — Inbound Logistics Magazine recognizes Evans Distribution Systems as a Top 100 3PL for a 14th consecutive year.
The logistics industry is seeing many changes. Truck driver shortages, autonomous vehicles, increased shipping demands, agility and flexibility of operations, and labor demands, to name a few challenges. “What remains the same are the quality of service, the talent of our teams, and innovation of the services we offer” said Leslie Ajlouny, vice president of business development at Evans Distribution Systems.
“Today’s leading companies are struggling to balance the need for advanced planning against the demands for supply chain agility, low-inventory schemes, and complex omni-channel distribution regimes. Evans Distribution Systems continues to provide solutions to help companies meet those challenges, acting as an enterprise change agent for efficiency and adaptability. That’s why Inbound Logistics is proud to honor Evans Distribution Systems as a Top 100 3PL Provider in 2016.” said Felecia Stratton, editor at Inbound Logistics.
Evans has developed unique logistics solutions for both enterprise clients and small businesses alike. “Our experience and systems allow us to be innovative and effective for the largest supply chains and those with simpler needs” said Derek Byrd, marketing and inside sales manager at Evans Distribution Systems. Evans has many Fortune 100 clients in the automotive and food and beverage industries. Evans order fulfillment solutions have also proven to be successful for international clients shipping to big box retailers and to end-users.
Inbound Logistics’ Top 100 3PL Provider’s 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 nearly 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.
