Gartner’s biennial review evaluates and charts the top logistics companies
GREEN BAY, Wis. – (June 4, 2019) – Supply chain leaders stay on top by working with the best third-party logistics providers (3PL). The Magic Quadrant for Third-Party Logistics Providers, North America, compiled by Gartner, is an industry-leading, best-in-class evaluative tool designed to assist supply chain leaders in their selection process. This comprehensive overview of 3PLs was created for companies to evaluate logistics providers doing significant business in North America. Schneider (NYSE: SNDR), a premier provider of trucking, intermodal and logistics services, continues to climb the list because of its expertise and robust offerings to customers.
Every two years, the Magic Quadrant evaluates the top 3PLs to demonstrate how they compare with one another across a variety of detailed criteria. There are two major criteria categories for placement on the Magic Quadrant: Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. Within each category, there are additional evaluative criteria to inform the final category score. The criteria are designed to define “what good looks like” for logistics providers based on capabilities, strategies, services and operating models.
“Logistics outsourcing can be an effective strategy to apply innovative technologies that optimize a supply chain’s visibility, flexibility and profitability,” said Mike Kukiela, vice president and general manager of supply chain management at Schneider. “Advancing within this exclusive list shows we continuously offer valuable expertise and resources to customers looking for logistics solutions.”
The final scores plotted 3PLs on the Magic Quadrant graph, where they are identified as either Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries or Niche Players. Schneider advanced its position in the Challengers quadrant, where 3PLs are defined as performing traditional logistics functions exceptionally well for customers. Schneider’s strengths include:
- A broad spectrum of truckload, intermodal and international transportation-related services and expertise
- A segmented approach with customers graduating its services and relationship complexity
- Direct access to capacity in a tight market
