(NASDAQ:ECHO), a leading provider of technology-enabled transportation management services, was voted #1 by readers of Inbound Logistics, earning the #1 ranking in the 2019 Top 10 3PL Excellence Awards for the third consecutive year. The company was recognized as a top 10 third-party logistics provider (3PL) by logistics professionals based on service and quality for the ninth year in a row.
"This recognition is such an honor because Inbound Logistics readers chose us as the top 3PL in service and quality," said Doug Waggoner, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer at Echo. "Being ranked first for three years in a row is a testament to the dedicated work of the entire Echo team, and it validates our commitment to simplify transportation by connecting businesses with carriers who ship goods quickly, securely, and cost-effectively."
"From our founding to the present day, we've demonstrated how technology can streamline transportation and generate efficiencies in a fragmented market," Waggoner observed. "Our digital evolution continues, as the launch of our proprietary EchoAccelerator platform as well as the rollout of EchoDrive and EchoShip showed earlier this year. Our continuous innovation keeps Echo at the forefront of the logistics sector, and our customers respond positively to that leadership."
"We are grateful for the loyalty and support of our customers and carriers," said Dave Menzel, President and Chief Operating Officer at Echo.
