SupplyChainBrain honor recognizes TQL’s outstanding services and solutions

Cincinnati, OH (Aug. 2, 2023) — Total Quality Logistics (TQL), the second-largest freight brokerage in North America and one of the largest global third-party logistics firms, has been named a 2023 Great Supply Chain Partner by the readers of SupplyChainBrain. This is the 10th straight year TQL has earned the distinction.

SupplyChainBrain has published its 100 Great Supply Chain Partners list annually for the last 21 years to recognize the best partnerships between service providers and their customers.

“We are proud to be a SupplyChainBrain Great Supply Partner,” TQL President Kerry Byrne said. “At TQL, our mission is to exceed customer expectations and handle their transportation requirements from the moment of pickup until delivery, 24/7/365. Being named to this list for the 10th year in a row is proof of our commitment to that mission.”

The list is compiled through customer surveys of logistics, transportation, technology and supply chain management providers. Of the thousands of providers nominated, those that achieve the top 100 distinction must receive multiple nominations from several customers. Customers submit their nominations directly to SupplyChainBrain.

“Our six-month online poll of supply chain professionals requires a qualified response, asking them to nominate vendors and service providers whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service and overall supply chain performance. This year’s field of nominees was highly competitive and overall excellent – coming from all sectors of supply chain management,” said Brad Berger, Publisher, SupplyChainBrain.
