Total Quality Logistics Named to Inbound Logistics’ Top 100 3PL Providers List for 2019

Cincinnati (OH) – Total Quality Logistics (TQL), the second-largest freight brokerage company in North America, today announced its recognition as a Top 100 3PL Provider by Inbound Logistics magazine.

“This recognition is a testament to our outstanding team members who are focused on providing premium service to our customers and carriers day in and day out,” said TQL President Kerry Byrne.

“When choosing the 2019 Top 100 3PL Providers, Inbound Logistics editors looked for providers who offer transformative solutions that drive integration across internal and external business processes and demonstrate excellence in optimizing transportation and logistics operations.

“IL editors chose Total Quality Logistics because its solutions create cost savings and efficiencies across the entire value chain and help solve specific logistics challenges and improve processes. Inbound Logistics is proud to honor TQL for innovative solutions empowering logistics and supply chain excellence in 2019,” said Felicia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics.

TQL continues to make substantial technology investments in proprietary solutions to improve transparency, communication, and drive greater efficiencies in transportation for its customers and carriers. The company recently announced a $20 million expansion at its corporate headquarters in Ohio to accommodate nearly 600 new employees the company anticipates hiring in sales and information technology roles.


Inbound Logistics' Top 100 3PL Provider's list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers we feel are best equipped to meet and surpass readers’ evolving outsourcing needs. Distilling the Top 100 is never an easy task, and the process becomes increasingly difficult as more 3PLs enter the market, and service providers from other functional areas develop value-added logistics capabilities. Each year, Inbound Logistics editors select the best logistics solutions providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to our readers’ burgeoning global supply chain and logistics challenges. IL editors selected this year's class of Top 100 3PLs from a pool of more than 300 companies. The service providers we selected are companies that, in the opinion of IL editors, offer the diverse operational capabilities and experience to meet readers' unique supply chain and logistics needs.
