We are happy to announce that GlobalTranz has joined the list of Inbound Logistics Magazine’s 2015’s Top 100 3PL Providers. Inbound Logistics is the leading trade magazine aimed for business logistics and supply chain managers, providing insight to help companies of all sizes better manage corporate resources by speeding up and reducing inventory, supporting infrastructure, and more accurately matching demand signals to supply lines. Being in the Top 100 3PL Providers list is highly regarded and is reserved for the caliber of companies that is on the cutting edge, offers diverse operational capabilities for an array of supply chain and logistics needs, and continually produces unrivaled results for its clients.
According to Inbound Logistics Editor Felecia Stratton,
“When choosing the 2015 Top 100 3PL Providers, Inbound Logistics editors looked for providers demonstrating excellence in optimizing transportation and logistics operations, as well as transformative solutions that drive integration across internal and external business processes.”
“GlobalTranz was selected because its solutions solve specific logistics challenges and improve processes, and create a ripple effect of efficiencies across the entire value chain. Inbound Logistics is proud to honor GlobalTranz for innovative solutions empowering logistics and supply chain excellence in 2015.”
Andrew Leto, Founder and CEO of GlobalTranz, quickly responded to the announcement.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by Inbound Logistics Magazine for our work. GlobalTranz has set some lofty goals in the past few of years, and we are pleased to see that we have not only exceeded our own expectations, but also garnered enough attention to be showcased by perhaps the most well-regarded trade publication in our industry. Our aim now is to continue our upward trend and continue to deliver the best service and most innovative technologies to our clients.”
Explaining their methodology, Stratton stated,
“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 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.”
Since opening in 2003, GlobalTranz has seen unparalleled growth, so much so that Inc. Magazine repeatedly named it as one of the fastest growing companies in 2008, 2009, and 2010. In 2014, even after a decade in the business, it saw a 54% growth increase. That same year, the company – headquartered in Phoenix’s CityCenter at CityNorth – expanded once again to add a 34,000 square foot space for its sales and operations office in the city’s acclaimed new Riverwalk Arizona development. GlobalTranz now has a customer base of over 18,000 companies, 500 employees, and annual earnings of $408 Million.
In the past few years, GlobalTranz has been among the most aggressive early adopters and implementers of new technologies, and currently offers one of the most robust software solutions for LTL, FTL, Supply Chain Logistics and Warehousing. To supplement its virtual services with brick-and-mortar support, GlobalTranz also operates its own in-house Freight Forwarding Division via the Expedited Services Department. This service offers high quality freight solutions over ground, sea and air. All GlobalTranz customers have access to a proprietary TMS solution, CarrierRate.com, which streamlines supply chain management by offering a real-time view of the flow and storage of merchandise.
Because the third-party logistics industry is full of highly capable companies, and every ounce of recognition is essential in order to stand out. The entire GlobalTranz family is pleased to yet again receive high marks for being a pioneer in the digital age. And companies seeking end-to-end solutions can now place their faith in a relative newcomer whose main purpose is to implement the most useful solutions, create better systems, execute at the highest standard, and help with the bottom line.
Leto concludes that
“2015 isn’t even over, and we’ve witnessed so much incredible feedback, but I can’t state enough that the credit for most of our achievements has to be shared with between our corporate staff, sales force, and loyal customer base. Innovation and new technology will always be what we strive for, but the backbone of this company will always be based on the commitment of our incredible employees and our dedication to our customers.”
