)-- Nexus Distribution was recognized by Inbound Logistics as a top 3PL for a ninth consecutive year in the annual Top 100 3PL issue. Inbound Logistics, a monthly print, web, digital and tablet resource for business logistics managers, announced the companies chosen as the Top 3PLs in July 2012.
Nexus Chairman and CEO, Dean Hansen, responded to the news saying, “We are honored to be ranked for the ninth year in a row with the top providers in the logistics profession. We continually strive to bring prime solutions to our customers to deliver market performance and exceed their expectations for service and dependability in a time when most things are uncertain. This multi-year recognition shows just how beneficial it is to have the certainty of more than 30 years’ experience from a tried and true team of experts.”
Inbound Logistics Editor, Felecia Stratton, shares, “Today’s economic climate has created fervor among shippers to cut transport costs, placing greater emphasis on a 3PL’s ability to provide capacity at the lowest possible cost. Today's business logistics leaders say they appreciate 3PLs that are proactive, take the lead in sharing best supply chain practices, and help to drive enterprise transformation. Strategic supply chain vision is a key measurement of 3PL excellence. For having that kind of supply chain expertise and vision, Inbound Logistics editors recognize Nexus as a 2012 Top 100 3PL Provider.”

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.
