Food Logistics has named Raleigh, N.C.-based L&M Transportation Services Inc. to its list of the top 100 third-party logistics and cold storage providers.
Companies on this year’s list were profiled in the August issue and online. Other honorees included C.H. Robinson, Railex LLC, Choptank Transport Inc., Total Quality Logistics and Crowley Maritime.
The trade magazine, published by Cygnus Business Media, serves transportation and logistics executives in the food and beverage industry.
“Our growing list of (third-party logistics) and cold storage providers indicates how important these two segments are to the food industry and the level of expertise and services required to support today’s growers and processors, shippers, and grocery retailers,” Lara Sowinski, editor in chief, said in a news release. “Assuring a safe and secure global food supply chain is paramount. In addition, reducing food waste, managing fuel and energy costs, and responding to new demands related to omnichannel retailing are just some of the expectations the food industry has.”
