Mike Kukiela, 3PL Thought Leader

GREEN BAY, Wis. (June 21, 2016) — Mike Kukiela, vice president and general manager for Schneider’s Logistics division, was recently honored as a Top 3PL Thought Leader by Global Trade magazine, whose mission is to entertain and to educate readers on ways to utilize the global marketplace. This recognition identifies influential professionals who are pushing the envelope in the logistics industry.

Global Trade chose Kukiela for his disciplined approach to risk assessment and vision alignment with crisp delivery of objectives. Since he joined Schneider in 2004, Kukiela has been instrumental in taking the company’s model of asset-based logistics solutions to the market in new and creative ways. That includes the launch of several distinct services: Supplier Management, Network Design and Optimization, Supply Chain Diagnostic and Sole Source and Promotional Freight Management. With technology as the cornerstone of his success, he recently led his team in a technological business transformation that was successfully completed within 12 months.

As a leader constantly in search of smarter ways to meet each shipper’s individual needs and deliver real business value, Kukiela stands out as a 3PL Thought Leader in transportation. Global Trade couldn’t agree more in Kukiela’s in-magazine feature, saying, “Add [training and experience in the U.S. Army] to Kukiela’s 12 years with Schneider, and it is small wonder he has displayed the creativity and bold vision that make him a thought leader in a complex and ever-changing industry.”
