Jericho, New York – October 1, 2012 – Purolator has been voted a Quality Award winner by the readers of Logistics Management (LM) based on outstanding performance and service.  Now in its 29th year, 4,709 readers of LM responded to the Annual Quest for Quality Awards survey conducted January through May 2012 by LM and the Peerless Research Group (PRG), finding Purolator a top performer in the category of third-party logistics (3PL) providers.

“For nearly three decades LM’s Quest for Quality awards program has been the benchmark for the best of the best in the transportation and logistics industry,” noted Purolator International President John Costanzo.  “This recognition is all the more rewarding because it is measured by customer satisfaction with our services and the fine work of Purolator employees.”

LM divides categories for survey responses into Transportation Service providers, U.S. Port operators, and Third Party Logistics providers.  In its ranking in the 3PL category, Purolator was rated on a five-point scale in the following:  Carrier Selection & Negotiation, Order Fulfillment, Transportation & Distribution, Inventory Management, and Logistics Information Systems.  An awards program will be held October 3rd in Atlanta.  More information may be found at www.logisticsmgmt.com.

Each year, Purolator International conducts a customer survey from the diverse fields of aviation, technology, energy and consumer goods to ensure satisfaction and receive input on areas that might be improved.  The results have been consistently positive with a noticeable spike in recent years given the company’s U.S. expansion — 10 new locations in 2011 and another 10 branches to be finalized by the close of this year — and the corresponding enhancement of freight and delivery services.
