Having worked the better part of 7 years at CombineNet, a best-in-class provider of sourcing solutions that leverage the powers of optimization, I couldn’t help but notice –and provide a little promotion—to a story that came across the wire this morning.
This week, CombineNet decided to congratulate some of its 3PL customers (i.e. third party logistics providers), who were recognized at this year’s North American 3PL Awards. Those customers include:
- Exel (part of the supply chain division of Deutsche Post DHL) – Winner of Best 3PL for Pharma/Life Sciences/Healthcare Supply Chain. Finalist for Automotive Supply Chain, Chemical/HazMat/Oil & Gas Supply Chain, Consumer Goods Supply Chain, Hi-Tech & Electronics Supply Chain, and Industrial Supply Chain categories.
- Transplace - Winner of Best 3PL in Consumer Goods Supply Chain and Retail Supply Chain categories. Finalist in Fresh Food Supply Chain and Sustainable Supply Chain categories.
- UPS Supply Chain Solutions – Winner of Best 3PL for Industrial Supply Chain. Finalist for Hi-Tech & Electronics Supply Chain, Pharma/Life Sciences/Healthcare Supply Chain, Renewable Energy Supply Chain, and Retail Supply Chain.
CombineNet’s sweet spot has long been in the area of sourcing transportation services. Whether it’s sourcing LTL, full truck, intermodal, ocean or airfreight –or some mult-imodal combination of the same– the company’s solutions are best-in-class, as advertised, and should be short listed by any company looking to make improvements in sourcing logistics. ‘
A perennially recognized IT award recipient by Inbound Logistics magazine, CombineNet’s approach to sourcing transportation has been honed by years of experience dealing with the biggest and most complex headaches in the marketplace. “CombineNet is very proud to be partnered with these leading companies focused on delivering logistics procurement and service excellence to customers where supply chain performance is critical. Each provides strong, differentiated solutions that are clearly recognized and valued by their customers,” said Rich Wilson, CombineNet’s Chief Executive Officer.
Healthcare supply chain professionals who have long regarded freight costs as nothing more than an added expense should consider brushing up on their knowledge of LTL logistics. Not that emerging care networks, including ACO’s, PCMH’s and the logistics involved in efficiently supporting home-based chronic disease management are going to require providers to get into that business, but the dictates will likely compel them to understand it.
